There is a Norse charm called the Vegvísir. It comes from the Huld Manuscript, which was collected in Iceland in approx. 1860, but allegedly contains much older information. The Vegvísir (Icelandic for "signpost") is intended to provide the holder of the charm with the ability to pass through rough weather without getting lost.
