About This Quiz

If you want to get super technical, there is a difference between Scandivinian counties and Nordic countries. Scandinavia only refers to Denmark, Sweden and Norway, while Nordic might also toss in Finland and Iceland. Why? Well, it's a mixed bag of reasons, but none of it changes how awesome any of those countries are or the fact that Vikings used to live there and they probably didn't care what name you used. Yay Vikings! Except not really because they were known to be exceptionally violent people. But you know who isn't exceptionally violent? The people who live there now. The countries of Scandinavia are world-famous for their high quality of life and overall happiness. The people there live good lives and have a lot going for them with beautiful scenery, good food, and, you know, IKEA.

When it comes to imagining yourself somewhere new you'd be hard-pressed to find any place better in the world to choose than one of the Scandinavian countries. But since there are a few to choose from, you need to figure out exactly which country is the one that's meant for you. If you're not sure, worry not! We're all over it like stink on some lutefisk. Take the quiz and see!
