Valenwood is a province of the Aldmeri Dominion located in the southwestern region of the Tamriel mainland. It is home to the Wood Elves.


Valenwood is a largely uninhabited forest wilderness. The coasts of Valenwood are dominated by mangrove swamps and tropical rain forests, while heavy rainfalls nurture the temperate inland rain forests. The Bosmer live in clanhouses at sites scattered along the coast and through the interior, connected only by undeveloped foot trails.


The Bosmer are the major species in Valenwood. Their strict ”Green Pact” prohibits the use of wood or other vegetable derivatives as building materials. This pact also has other such rules as that a fallen enemy must be completely consumed before three days pass. They also cannot smoke anything of a vegetable nature. Bone pipes are common, however, and are filled with caterpillars or tree grubs. They also have a deep-seated fear of Necromancy.
