Find the six best secret locations in the amazing SKYRIM

Don’t miss these incredible locations while on your travels

1: Embershard Mine

Just south of Riverwood, this mine is a great source of iron ore: essential for raising your smithing. Watch out for bandits.

2: The Serpent Stone

Perched on a treacherous glacier, adopting the sign of the Serpent gives you a poison attack you can use once a day.

3: Half-Moon Hill

If you want to become a vampire, there are two living here in this secluded mill. Attack and you mat catch the disease. (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

Even thought it's not a secret, the dwarven cave in the main quest is my favorite environment in all of skyrim, with its epic glowing mushrooms and creatures.

Blackreach, it creeped me out with it's sheer scale and falmer inhabitants.

I'd have to say my favourite locations are the Dwemer dwarf ruins; any of them. By far the most interesting and most aesthetically interesting of anything in the game. Just a personal opinion. And some of those traps. The Dwemer must've been some nasty folks. Hope to see more of their presence in future ES games. :)

Edit: None of these locations are secret. I found them all just by wandering and exploring until I finished the game a few days ago.

If you're talking about the cave you go through to get the Elder Scroll,I gotta say that it was pretty epic. For some reason, all I can think about when going through that area was the movie Tron.

These can't be particularly 'secret', as I've already found 5 of 6 of them. Especially Embershard Mine, it's right next to Riverwood.

Is the Steed Stone pretty secret? I just found it and it's amazing: +100 to carrying weight and no movement penalty from armor

Also, keeping the skeleton key from the Thieves Guild Quest is pretty "secret (maybe not a location...)," in that a lot of people continue to finish the storyline, not realizing they have an unbreakable lockpick in their hands.

Question: Are there any secret locations that are only accessible from underwater?

Didn't know about that one. That would be a preference! Thanks

Embershard Mine? Ha! Gloombound Mine is waaaaaay more worth mentioning. These are definitely not the best "secret" locations in Skyrim.. Maybe for a completely new player coming straight out of Helgan for the first time, but that's it.

Yeah these places aren't at all secret. And mining just to level smithing? Why do that when it's 100 times easier to buy iron ingots/ore from the blacksmiths and craft iron daggers like crazy.

Also a nice secret place I'm sure other ppl have found is a locked cabin with a bookshelf I think? It opens into a cavern for you to explore with a bunch of traps and what not

They're not secret locations at all... You run around and they all appear on your map as icons... and once you locate them you can fast travel to... not really secret considering unknown locations still pop up on the compass when your are in the area. so yeah all you have to do is run around and you will uncover all these locations...

nothing secret about it at all.

every single one of these that you have listed.

I found 334 locations in skyrim. Does anyone know how many there are total.
I traded the game to play SR3 and I'm loving it, but yea Skyrim was fun. Looking forward to the Witcher 2 in april.

Blackreach was an awesome surprise. I spent days down there. But I agree none of these places are 'secret', and there are cooler things to find, like the shipwrecks off the north coast. Places that might not have a lot of loot but emphasise the attention to detail in the game

So if go to those secret locations, will I able to get rare item also?.

Hmm
Skyrim has easily become one of my most favorite games. I was surprised considering I'm not a big fan of games like this. Nothing better than just walking around and stumbling upon something to discover. Can't wait to see what the DLC has to offer.

"secret" as in "pls visit our website, we desperately need hits" :D
