A companion of the rude ferryman Hárbarðr (Odin), mentioned in a stanza from Hárbarðsljóð:

I was with Fjölvari
five winters through,
in the isle
which Algrön hight.
There we could fight,
and slaughter make,
many perils prove,
indulge in love.

A giantess or troll-wife named Fjölvor is listed in the Nafnaþulur, thus it is possible that Fjölvar too is a giant. The island Algrön or Algrœn, "All-green," is not mentioned elsewhere in the Eddas.
