Subscribe to download ScenicCarriages

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!)

i had this mod installed on steam when i first got the game and there are glitches here and there but its an awesome mod. i just started using nexus mods and was wondering if i have to uninstall scenic carriages from steam before i install it on nexus or is it ok for them both to be running?

The August 22nd update failed, I know, but that was back in '12... Is this mod at least functional now? Like, will it run without breaking the carriage system altogether?
