Ymir and Audhumla

Viking Myths

CREATION

In the Viking Creation Myth, worlds of Fire and Ice take shape around a magical gap called Ginnunga Gap.

Ymir (the first living being) gives birth to etins or giants, and lives on the milk of the cow Audhumla.

When the first gods are born, they kill Ymir the father of etins, and create heaven and earth out of his body.

The story of Creation is told in ‘Beginnings’, Chapter 1 of Viking Myths: Stories of the Norse Gods and Goddesses.
