The Heroes' Pursuits: Fyresdal is a secondary quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It is one of the four Heroes' Pursuits quests which involve horse racing.

The XP earned based on the Story and Swords! difficulty level rewarded in this quest is unaffected by the ±5 level constraint and difficulty level.


Between Blandare and Palisade, near Kvalheim Isle, you'll find Skelligers getting ready to race. Talk to the race master here and let them know when you're ready to race.

Note that while there are no obstacles, a storm will hit shortly after you start no matter what, though this shouldn't really have an effect on the race itself. The race is fairly long: you'll race through the Palisade and all the way to Fyresdal. Once you've won you'll gain 25 XP earned based on the Story and Swords! difficulty level, 50 Oren3.png, and the Cavalry saddle.

Journal Entry[]

The glory of Modron Freya knows no bounds and in Skellige everyone pays their resects[sic] to this goddess. In Fyresdal and many other, similar locales, the Great Mother was honored by holding horse races. Geralt decided to take part.
Skelligers make fine riders, but Geralt is no spring chicken himself when it comes to horse racing. Thanks to his well-honed skills, Roach's effort and the goddess' favor, the witcher triumphed.
