In Norwegian folklore and legend, Huldra is a mythical, beautiful female creature you can encounter in the mountains or the deepest of forests.

According to norwegian tales, Huldra lives in the Norwegian mountains and underground and entices men with appearance and charm. Huldra also steals children and exchanges them for their own, and these children are called “swaps”.

In stories, Huldra appears to the public for better or worse. She can get you in danger and unhappiness, or she can help and comfort you. Huldra can lure and obtain men hiking in the mountains, and in some tales and anecdotes, she also marries human souls.
