Wilderness

The Wilderness is a secluded area near the School of Dragons, characterized by a temperate forest climate. Some might even take it a step forward and classify it as a temperate coniferous forest, characterized by the evergreen coniferous trees, rather than the broad leaf deciduous trees that grow in other areas around the Isle. Unlike other parts of Berk, the Wilderness has not been settled by Vikings and so remains a new frontier for exploration and discovery. Because the Wilderness is relatively undisturbed by humans, there are many plants and animals found here that are not found anywhere else on Berk.

There are many streams and pools of water that circle around the valley of the Wilderness. The water found in the Wilderness is guided by the rocky and varying terrain. Although little is known of this area, legend states that the valley carved out of the stone cliffs that distinguishes the Wilderness was originally created by massive glaciers millennia before.

The glaciers also left distinct features on the rocky cliffs that remain clearly visible to this day. The southern-most part of the Wilderness is bordered by a rock formation that bears a distinct resemblance to a dragon. Because of this resemblance, the Vikings had avoided settling there due to the long feud with dragons. However, with the dawn of a new age of Viking and dragon cooperation, the Wilderness is once again open for free exploration by Vikings.
