    The Vikings originated from the area that became modern-day Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. They settled in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Iceland, Greenland, North America, and parts of the European mainland, among other places.

    Is this a serious question? Did your school teach history? Have you thought to search this either online or in actual history books? Sorry but finding the answers is obvious.

    Originally Scandinavia, before settling in places like NE England , East Scotland and Iceland. It is possible they got as far as Eastern Canada ( Newfoundland). They also settled in Northern France and became the Normans .

    Viking was more of a job description than a specific society or nation. Most of those who went Viking originated from coastal settlements around the North Sea, so mostly the Scandinavian areas of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, but also Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Britain. The voyages and raids these Vikings undertook lead them as far afield as Greenland and the eastern seaboard of the Americas in the west to Russia and Iran in the east and as far south as north Africa. Many of these raids lead to eventual settlement in these areas, including the establishment of Dublin in Ireland, much of Belarus and Ukraine and also Turkey.
