Abstract: Discusses physical geography of Fennoscandia, region where ancient Precambrian shield is covered by young Quaternary and Holocene sediments, where transport infrastructure is good (even in northernmost parts), and where climate is not extremely cold compared with that of similar latitudes elsewhere on Earth. Also covers special topics: land uplift; large drumlin fields and eskers; mires; snow; timberline; fjords; archipelagos; lakes; scattered frost features; and biodiversity aspects of conservation.
