First appearance Conan the Barbarian Vol 1 Contents[hide] History Notes Trivia See Also Links and References History Vanaheim is the westernmost of the nations of the Far North, lying west of Aesgaard and North of Cimmeria and Pictland.
It comprises the western portion of the region called Nordheim.  It is a somber country, mostly a bleak tundra plain that was snow-covered through the long winters. Swampy taiga forests probably clothed its high southern regions thinly. Glaciers crept down from the Eiglophian Mountains in the south and the Blue Mountains on the frontier with Asgard. Far to the north are more mountains, crowned with a permanent ice cap that grows larger as the climate changes.
The resident population are the Vanir, typically red-haired and blue-eyed. They are a warrior culture. Their skills are honed in near-constant conflict with their neighbors in Aesgard and Cimmeria.  In peacetime, the Vanir pursue the regular activities of most other nations. They hunt and forage for for food, and fist in the waters of the Western Ocean. While they have ships, they sheldom venture far from their own coasts.
The man deity of this culture is Ymir.
