Fimbulwinter (giant: Fimbulvetr) is a future event told by the clergy of Malym where all heat in the world will die and a harsh everlasting frost will cover the world, putting to end all life.

Three successive winters will occur where snow comes in from all directions, without any intervening summer. During this time, there will be innumerable wars and ties of blood will no longer be respected: the next-of-kin will lie together and brothers will kill brothers.

In Midgard, the term fimbulvinter is still used to refer to an unusually cold and harsh winter.
