Hamvir's Rest is an ancient Nordic ruin found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Hamvir's Rest is an above-ground tomb located at the foot of the south side of the mountain range between Whiterun and Hjaalmarch, northwest of Dustman's Cairn. The alchemical ingredient nightshade grows in abundance among the gravemarkers.

There is a chance to encounter the Headless Horseman elsewhere in the game. If followed, he will lead the Dragonborn to this graveyard.

Notable itemsEdit

  • There is a Master-level chest to be looted at one of the altars.
  • There is also some loot beside the tomb on the left, which may include a piece of armor, or a weapon. There is a skull as well, which can not be taken.
  • Eight nightshade plants can be found in and around the cemetery.



  • Hamvir's Rest is likely a reference to Sleepy Hollow, due to the fact that when the Headless Horseman is found at night, he will make his way to Hamvir's Rest before morning, just as the Headless Horseman in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow rushes in a hurry to get to Sleepy Hollow before daybreak.
