About This Quiz

In Norse mythology, the wolf Fenrir is said to have killed Odin at Ragnarok. Odin, of course, is said to ride an 8-legged horse called Sleipnir. There's also Eikthyrnir, a deer that's supposed to live on the roof of Valhalla where it nibbles the leaves of a tree. All through the history of the Norse and the Nordic lands you can find tales of animals, some more fierce than others. Scandinavia itself is home to many creatures, from the simple lemmings to deadly wolves and everything in between. All of these creatures, both real and mythological, are strong and enduring beasts — they have to be in order to survive in such an unforgiving land. These creatures are no joke, and that's what makes many of them so exceptional as spirit animals. 

If you feel any kind of connection to those Norse tales and the people in them, then there's a good chance you might be interested in knowing where you fit in — or where those Nordic animals fit in with you. If you want to know your Nordic spirit animal, all you have to do is take the quiz!
