Körmt and Örmt

Thor wades through a river while the æsir ride across the bridge Bifröst (1895) by Lorenz Frølich

Körmt and Örmt are two rivers in Norse mythology. [1]

Thor wades through Körmt and Örmt, together with two other rivers called Kerlaugar, every day when he goes to judgment at the ash-tree, Yggdrasill. The source for this reference is a strophe in Grímnismál, one of the mythological poems of the Prose Edda.[2]
