Map of Yggdrasil (Nine Worlds) by solaroid Map of Yggdrasil (Nine Worlds) by solaroid
This is an illustration I did of the Nine Worlds from Norse mythology for my maps project. I wanted to do a simple, informative map because I was baffled by how little most people know about it compared to Greek/Roman/Egyptian mythology.

I used the Norwegian names instead of the Norse/Icelandic ones because that’s how I know them as and is a lot more relatable to me (ek snakkur ikkur islendur!) and the descriptions are in English, but there’s a full Norwegian version around somewhere…!

You can read more about the map over at my Tumblr.

The way they're described seems like you can just walk between them.

This is extremely helpful! I'm making a presentation for my English class (I'm German) about Norse Mythology and this is really good for explaining the Nine Worlds to my classmates and your explanations on tumblr clarified some things for me!

Nidhogg is there. He's just shown as a giant snake in the image because that's what he looked like. At least, more like that than a european dragon
