Hodmimir's Holt

Norse - A deep cavern. This is the place where Lif and Lifthrasir slept during Ragnarok. When they awoke, they lived on dew and repopulated the earth. In some accounts, it is described as a forest which could not be destroyed by fire and so escaped Surtur's flaming sword at Ragnarok. Others describe it as a cavern. Also commonly referred to as Hodmimir's Holt.
