Valheim Wiki

The Ocean is a biome which is currently a large, empty body of water. It is only realistically accessible by boats, as swimming in it quickly depletes stamina causing drowning.

Players venturing into this biome may be occasionally attacked by a Serpent.


  • Creatures and boats destroyed in the water cause some of the loot or materials to drop or sink depending on weight. Examples of floating material include wood and trophies; while nails, pelts, coins, etc. sink to the bottom and can become unreachable. Player deaths in the Ocean biome generate a floating headstone, and boat inventory is stored in a floating crate.
  • There is a simulation of low and high tide within the game on all coast and shore lines.
  • According to the developer Roadmap, it will be expanded upon in a future update.
