Wayward Pass is a mountain pass located in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Wayward Pass is a path in between two mountains southwest of Winterhold and southeast of Dawnstar and directly south of Alftand. There is a shrine of Arkay here as well as one of his amulets and iron armor. The unique Ancient Traveler's Skull can also be found here.
About one fourth of the way down, you can observe that a book is floating in thin air, and can be knocked down by a shout or an arrow. It is not yet known if it is a mappers mistake, or an easter egg.
When attempting to become a Thane of Windhelm, one of the quest's to assist the people of Eastmarch includes bringing an Amulet of Arkay to Torbjorn to show his wife in the hope that she will realise that their deceased daughter is with Arkay.
According to the Creation Kit, a male Nord bandit called Spirit of the Ancient Traveler was to appear in this location, but this didn't make it into the final game.
