|“||After realizing the mysterious Hidden World was meant only for dragons, we headed back to our temporary camp. All the Vikings had started to feel at home there, so we decided to make official. In honor of our previous residence that we'd built over seven generations, we've named our current glorious island home New Berk. [src]||”|
New Berk, also known as Monolithic Island, is a location that was first introduced in How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.
|“||Nine degrees east of the Edge of the World, and a few degrees north of Permanent Frostbite, this is New Berk. [src]||”|
New Berk is elevated far from sea level, making it hard for non-dragon-riders (or those without Hiccup's wingsuits) to access. It contains fields, waterfalls, thick jungle-type forests, and beaches. It is considerably larger than the original Berk, seen as overcrowding did not seem to be a problem once the Berkians arrived there.

New Berk is an island northwest of Berk beyond the Barbaric Archipelago. This island is similar to Berk in its geography, which consists of cliffs, beaches, waterfalls, and forests. The plant life that grows on New Berk is very diverse and consists of tropical-like vines and thick foliage, and in contrast, plants that bear a strong resemblance to pine trees.
The climate of New Berk is much warmer compared to other places such as Berk, which can be seen due in the plant life (tropical like vines instead of Pine forests). However, it is still cold enough to accommodate plants that prefer a colder environment.
The Vikings of the Hooligan Tribe settle into New Berk permanently during the events of the third and final film and start to build a new village on the island.

After abandoning Berk in their quest to find the Hidden World in order to maintain their lifestyle, the Hooligan Tribe uproot and fly in search of the mythical place. Along their search, they take refuge on the island to rest. Albeit temporary, most of the tribe agree that it is a wonderful place to stay permanently.
This section requires expansion.
- New Berk is the second island that the Hooligan Tribe have known to settle in, after Berk.
- According to Brad Lewis, New Berk is supposed to be the mirror image of the Hidden World.
