Vidi is the realm of Vidar, a god of strength in the Norse pantheon. It is located within the walls of Asgard.[1]

Vidi is a land of tall grass full of huge legendary animals, where deities go to hunt. Vidar also keeps his hall and stables here.[2]

The name Vidi is also applied to Vidar's hall.[3]

Creative origins[edit | edit source]

Vidar's land is described in stanza 17 of Grimnismal, a poem in Old Norse narrated by Odin:[4]

"With brush is grown
and with high grasses
Víðar's land, Viði;
and there the son shows himself
on horseback
bold to avenge his father."
