To the north lies Nifelheim, a place of mist, ice and frozen rivers. It is the deepest parts of the realm of the dead. Odin once rode there to consult a dead Volve, a seer or sorceress, on the fate of the gods. She rose up and told Odin about what had been as well as on what was yet to come.

Her prophecy is told in one of the most famous poems in the poetic Edda. This poem is called Voluspå, meaning literally the Volva's prophecy.

Hearing I ask

from the holy races,

From Heimdall's sons,

both high and low;

Thou wilt, Valfather,

that well I relate

Old tales I remember

of men long ago.

Voluspå
