The tale of Þórr and Útgarðaloki tells of one of Þórrs travels to Útgarðr, facing many challenges and confrontations on the journey and in the hall of the mighty Útgarðaloki.

Snorra Edda was composed in Iceland in the 13th century, and holds the stories of many of the Pre-Christian myths of northern Europe. It is believe to have been composed by the Icelander Snorri Sturlusson. It consists of three separate parts, Gylfaginning, Skaldskápamáland Háttatal, all functioning together as a greater work and guide for the aspiring medieval poet and storyteller.
