Welcome to Berk: A Land Where Dragons Rule

Universal Creative, in partnership with DreamWorks Animation and Universal Pictures, is bringing the enchanting world of How to Train Your Dragon to life. Imagine stepping into the Isle of Berk, a place where dragons soar freely and Vikings live in harmony with these majestic creatures. The land is meticulously designed to capture the essence of the beloved film trilogy, complete with rugged landscapes, Viking architecture, and, of course, dragons at every turn.

This land captures the very essence of what makes the How to Train Your Dragon films so special: the heart, the humor, and the grand scale of a world where Vikings and dragons aren’t just friends; they’re family. Picture this: you’re walking into one of the most jaw-dropping environments ever created by Universal. We’re talking immense architecture with hand-carved details that tell stories of dragon adventures, lush landscapes that make you feel like you’re walking through a living, breathing Viking saga, and rolling hills that hide the secrets of dragons.

And the village! Oh, the village is a bustling hub of life where the line between dragons and humans blurs into a beautiful, chaotic dance. Dragons take to the skies, sheep sneak around disguised as Terrible Terrors (yes, really!), and every so often, a burst of fire lights up the sky – because what’s a dragon land without a little fire, right?

Your first glimpse of Berk will steal your breath away, with a sparkling lagoon and towering Viking statues that stand guard over the village. It’s like stepping into the movie, but better, because this time, you’re part of the story.
