The Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Atlas allows you to travel between different regions of the game, something that comes in handy when you arrive in England early in the story.
While reaching England is a monumental step for our cast of characters, it doesn’t have to be for the players themselves: the Atlas allows you to return to Norway whenever you want.
This is useful if you want to complete side quests or explore places you missed earlier in the game, and since there are some high game areas in Norway that you can’t access yet, it’s important to know for the end game as well. .

How to get to England and how to unlock the Atlas in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
The Atlas allows you to travel between regions beyond the one you are currently in.
For starters, this isn’t a problem in Norway, which while itself is a huge area, is completely visible on the map screen from the start of the game. However, other areas, such as England, are not in sight.
To get to England in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, you must play the main story. Specifically, you must reach Chapter 5 of The Battle for the Northern Path, with the mission The Seas of Destiny.
Norway, for good reason, feels like home, so it’s nice to know you can return at any time.
This takes around four hours, depending on how much side content you do in Norway.
Once you’ve arrived in England, when you check the map, as in Norway initially, you’ll only see England visible, meaning you’ll need to use the Atlas to travel to Norway (and back).
The Atlas will be unlocked when you have established the Ravensthorpe settlement. This happens shortly after arriving in the new country, about 30 minutes in as you make your way down the river as part of a story mission.
Once that initial mission is completed, it is possible to access the Atlas and return to Norway.
The new DLC is here and we explain how to start The Siege of Paris, as well as new romance options and Treasure Hoard locations. If you’re looking for endgame activities in the full game, we can explain how to get the Nodens Bow, Excalibur, Thor’s Gear, and other Valhalla armor sets, power level and how to get XP quickly, Order of the Ancients locations, and all the Assassins. Creed Valhalla story options. If you’re looking for things to collect and upgrade, we’ve got lists of the best Book of Knowledge skills and locations.
How to use the Atlas in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to travel between Norway and other regions
To use the Atlas, first open the map screen. Then, press Y on Xbox or Triangle on PlayStation, as shown in the bottom left corner.
This will give you a menu option of currently available regions. Select the one you want and you will be transported to the ‘base’ of that region after loading the screen.
Then when you want to go back, pick it up again and go back.
As with accessing the map screen in general, you can’t do this in the middle of quests or other time-sensitive activities, but otherwise it’s liberating to know that you can go back and forth between regions at any time.
