An Iceland Rainbow

Updated: May 27, 2020

In Icelandic and Old Norse mythology, Bifröst is a burning rainbow bridge that connects heaven and earth. It reaches between Midgard (the world) and Asgard (heaven). You can read about this in the Prose Edda and Ynglinga Saga, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson.
