Or else I would suggest that you turn back, and in my opinion, that would be the best thing for you to do. But if you really want to go to Utgard, then continue to head east. My path leads me northward to those mountains that you can see over there. Skrymir then picked up the food bag and threw it over his shoulder and headed north into the forest.
Thor and his companions continued on their journey and traveled east until midday when they arrived at a plain, here they saw a huge fortress, it was so tall they had to bend their necks all the way back, just to see the top of it.
They walked up to the fortress, but could not enter because the gate was closed. Thor went up to the gate and tried to open it with all his might, but he was unable to open it. So Thor and his companions squeezed themselves in between the bars in the gate.
When they came inside they found themselves in a huge hall with many giants, they all sat eating and drinking and some of them were too big that sat on two benches. They went up to greet the king called Utgards Loke. The King sat and looked at them for a few moments, and said; News travels slowly from distant parts, but am I wrong in thinking that this little fellow with the red hair is Thor?
Surely there is more to you than meets the eye. Tell me, travelers, what skills do you think that you are capable of competing. No one is allowed to stay here unless they some skill or knowledge greater than other men.
Loki who was standing in the back of the group said; I have a skill that is ready to be tested because I can eat faster than any man in this hall.
