....Hyperborea was the terrestrial and celestial beginning of civilisation. The home of original Man. Some theories postulate Hyperborea was the original Garden of Eden, the point where the earthly and heavenly planes meet. And it is said Man transgressed Divine Law in this Golden Age civilisation, the ultimate price being his banishment to the outside world. Man ventured into other regions of Earth, establishing new civilisations, bringing to an end this great and glorious Golden Age.

According to the Prose Edda book Gylfaginning, Thor, Þjálfi and Loki, during their travel to Útgarðr, unwittingly settle for the night and sleep in the glove of a giant named Skrýmir ("Big-looking"), an incident for which Thor is ridiculed in several poems of the Poetic Edda. (The Giant Skrymir and Thor (c. 1891), by Louis Huard)

n Norse mythology, Gjálp and Greip are two giantesses.  For the moon of Saturn named after Greip, see Greip (moon). For the Gjalp fissure eruption see Bardarbunga. According to Skáldskaparmál they were daughters of the giant Geirröðr. As Thor was wading across Vimur the river "waxed so greatly that it broke high upon his shoulders".

Thor saved by a Rowan Tree. Skáldskaparmál the Rowan tree is called “the salvation of Thor” because Thor once saved himself by clinging to it.
