Hyperborea is the ancient location mentioned in Ancient Greek Mythology. Descriptions of the land mention immortal beings that never age, huge valleys and forests inhabited by fairies and elves. The only way to get to Hyperborea is through huge swans. It said that no north wind blows there and its tresures are protected by griffons. A mystical land that Zeus created for no apparent reason, that only grows questions to Apollo. Mount Voormithadreth, the abode of Tsathoggua, is located in Hyperborea.
