Haldor is a trader found randomly in the Black Forest biome. He sells several unique items that can be purchased when players bring enough Coins. Haldor will also purchase Rubies, Amber, Amber Pearls, and Silver Necklaces from players in return for coin. There is no other use for these items and they can be safely sold.


When in a 290m radius (about 1½ default minimap sizes away) from Haldor for the first time, his bag icon will appear on the world map.

He will only spawn on the Black Forest biome, but can appear in any Black Forest biome in that world whether it is near the starting Sacrificial Stones or at the edge of the world.

  • When players find Haldor, it can be a good idea to drop a Portal in the vicinity to make easier returns.
  • Haldor's cart and tent are surrounded by a shimmering transparent dome that acts as a safety zone that Creatures cannot enter.
  • Haldor has a Lox in his camp named Halstein that can be seen feeding from a bowl.
  • Haldor has 10 possible spawn areas per seed (example shown here: https://valheim-map.world/). He won't actually appear until you approach one of these spawn points, and once he does appear he remains at that one location "permanently."


  • "Haldor" is a name having roots in Old Norse origins. Its meaning is presumably "Thor's rock".
