Frostflow Abyss is a cave system found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The entrance to Frostflow Abyss is located within the basement of the Frostflow Lighthouse. It is an underground labyrinth guarded by several Falmer and Chaurus. The Dragonborn can either find a key that will allow them to open the door to the basement, or they will have to pick the lock, it is an expert lock.

The icy cave follows a winding path leading to a drop into several large caverns. The caverns are hatcheries for Chaurus.



Of particular interest to alchemists is the vast number of Chaurus Eggs the player can harvest. Along with these there are multiple Glowing Mushroom and White Cap sprouts.

Notable itemsEdit

  • In the first chamber, hidden around a blind corner on the right hand side is a knapsack containing random loot.
  • Quicksilver Ore vein in the second chamber with a lot of chaurus egg sacs.
  • Falmer chest behind some cobweb in the third room on the left side with random loot.

  •  PS4   Progressing through the cellar and finding Habd's Remains prior to accepting the quest will initiate the radiant quest, but will not be able to be completed.
  •  PC   Your follower may get stuck going down ledges in middle egg room, using a shield bash would knock them off and free them to follow again.
