Where To Find Swamp valheim

Where is the Swamp in Valheim? Well, the game’s map is procedurally generated which means that there is no fixed Swamp Biome location for everyone. Every player will find the Swamp in a different place because it is random so you have to go ahead and explore a lot. Make sure to search your starting island first but most likely it won’t be there. To find the Swamp location, you have to head to another island far from your own. You must make and use a Raft to travel to another island.

As you start sailing using your newly-built Raft, you have to look for some dried up trees and that’s your Swamp biome location in Valheim. It will be brown in color on the map. Have patience though because it can appear quickly or much later depending on your map.
