Want a more immersive Skyrim experience? Enjoy the wonderful Skyrim scenery while riding in the back of a carriage (just like in the introduction!) ScenicCarriages transforms the non-moving Skyrim carriages to a fully functional carriage network! Carriages are available in all the nine hold capitals, with destination and fees based on location and distance. Ask any driver for the "Guide to ScenicCarriages" for an in-game list of routes and maps. While riding, you have the option to get out along the way (and kill off that dragon that's been circling overhead) before continuing to your destination, or you ask the driver to "Wake you up when you arrive."

For the less hardcore player, there's Expanded Vanilla travel offering pickup locations outside all the nine hold capitals with destinations to most towns & villages in Skyrim!

• Two Travel Modes - choose in-game between Scenic Travel or Expanded Vanilla (Default)
• Scenic Travel - ride in the back of the carriage with option to get out along the way (or sleep)
• Expanded Vanilla - expands the original carriage system with drop-off service to most towns/villages (see list below)
• Expanded carriage locations - added carriage pick-up service to all the hold capitals
• Travel Encumbered - now you can travel the carriage system even while encumbered
• Scenic Travel carriage fees and routes are based on location and distance
• Switch travel modes in-game, anytime (while not riding!)
• Up to three followers can ride with you in the carriage!


Big Thanks!

I want to give a big thanks to KiTarn & kkunderwood for their very generous donations! I'm now downloading Dawnguard! Thanks guys, otherwise it wasn't going to happen. (I was a bit hesitant to publicly say anything about donations but after seeing other mods recognizing people I really wanted to give credit.)

Note: Due to Steam Errors this version did NOT upload. Even though Steam shows an update on August 22, furryoldguyjeans has confirmed it is not the 1.2 release. (See Notice below.)

New Version 1.2 "Back in the Drivers Seat"

Work-around for the Bethesda Dialog Bug
Compiled under CK 1.6.89 with udpated navmeshes
Added Shutdown Option to the Config Menu

* Includes missed scripts for Dragon Bridge, Shor's Stone, Old Hroldan & Stone Hills
* Changed determination for followers - hopefully will get Dawnguard Followers now

Thanks to the following people for their time and feedback while beta testing:


If you are having any problems when talking to the carriage driver - either before or while travelling, you are likely experiencing the following bug:
Bethesda's latest patch ( has broken the dialog in MANY mods. Read more about it in this thread:
Dialogue no longer works: http://forums.bethsoft.com/topic/1399783-dialogue-no-longer-works/

If you want the latest version of ScenicCarriages (1.2) which addresses this Bethesda bug, you will need to download it from Nexus.

I am NO LONGER maintaining my mod here on Steam. I have tried multiple attempts over multiple days to upload the latest version and I either get Steam Errors or no errors but it fails to upload. If you want the latest version, you can get it from Nexus. I just don't have the time or energy to deal with Steam anymore.

For more information, including the FAQ, README and Latest Version, visit the Nexus site:

There is now a Hearthfire fix available on Nexus, as provided by Arthmoor! (Please send all thanks to him!)

Getting into the Carriage

This mod is not just bad, but it is game breaking!

I have reported this mod.

This mod broke my game. You can no longer vanilla carriage travel! When you attempt to travel, he stops talking, nothing happens, and money is not taken! I hate this mod! The buggiest thing ever! You may as well go get the thomas the tank engine dragon replacement and be better off! I even attempted to fix this crud by uninstalling the mod, did it work? No. Now, scenic carriages has been unsubscribed, wiped from my computer, and everthing. The problem is, that despite all of that, anytime you try to travel by carriage, you talk to the guy, choose where you want to go, and he says "climb on back and we'll be off". No money is then taken, and if you "climb in the back" or "use carriage" then you climb in and it glitches out. You can leave the carriage, but it now does nothing and is horribly un-usable! I simply cannot figure out how to restore this! I re-installed Skyrim, and the issue still persists. I hope this piece of total garbage gets taken down from the steam workshop!

i got to say this, when i did add this it just gives me (Vainalla) and nothing else even i press ok and chose solitude it didn't get me anywhere. i didn't see can you give me the book i even saved before i add this mod. this is not what i thought it will be and i thought what it showed in the video. I wanted soemthing like this so i can veiw the land but no. I don't know if there is a bug or a glitch but this is not cool to something like that when i try to get this mod for what i thought i wanted to be

Not a very good mod sad to say, its very buggy with actually using it, I'm not able to fall asleep when in the carriage and sometimes the carriage will run over NPC's (Which is humerous) but it breaks immersion, after I uninstalled the mod I am unable to use the carriages and the chat option about the guide book and vanilla carriage travel is still there, so not a very good mod at all. Until the bugs are fixed I don't reccomend it.

the travelling works fine, but I can't get out or "go to sleep" while I'm in the carriage. I talk to the driver, and it shows me all of the dialouge options, but when I choose one, nothing happens and he keeps driving. I always end up using console commands to get out (I do get the notice that it should not happen, though nothing bad has happened yet

When someone attacks the carriage, it disappears and stops with your camera's X axis frozen

Does it implement the unused Carriage rider lines? I believe there was like two dozen lines intended to be said by the drivers while passing certain places(The one example I can give from the top of my head is Honningbrew meadery)

Nah, he has to use complicated, difficult Nexus

Fix this MOD! It's too epic to leave out!
