Welcome!

Njord by Maris PeiWelcome to the online shrine of Njord, the Norse god of ships, sailing, fishing, and all humanity's business with the waters. Njord is one of the Vanir, or gods of agriculture, but he is the farmer of the seas and rivers. Fishing was very important to the people of northern Europe, many of whom depended on fishing for survival in cold lands with short growing seasons, and who needed to travel by boat or ship. Here we honor the Fisher God, the Ship-King, the father of the Light-Bringers. Enter and be blessed!
