There are two ships that stand out in Norse Mythology. Nalgfar is the ship of the goddess, Hel. It is made from the fingernails of the dead. At Ragnarok it will rise from the depths, and – oared by giants and with Loki at its helm – it will cross the Bifrost bridge to lead the assault on Asgard. The gods have a longship, too, called Skíðblaðnir. Skíðblaðnir is Frey’s ship, and while it is big enough to fit all the gods along with their chariots and war gear, the dwarves made it so cunningly that it can be folded up and carried around in a small bag or pocket. The gods use Skíðblaðnir to travel together over sea, over land, and even through the air. This myth shows how the Vikings viewed ships – a good ship can take you anywhere.
