The Rift is the southern most of Skyrim’s holds, sitting in the southeastern corner of the province on the borders of both Morrowind and Cyrodiil. It features two large lakes.
The capital of the Rift is Riften. The Rift also houses the settlements of Ivarstead and Shor’s Stone. At the beginning of the game, the Rift is controlled by the Stormcloaks.
