Valhalla is a magically hidden island located somewhere in the Indian Ocean. The island cannot be tracked or found without great power or special pendants that every Valkyrie warrior possesses. These pendants open a portal to the island, which is the only way to arrive undetected.
Inhabitants and Use
Valhalla is inhabited by the Valkyries. It also serves as the training ground of the souls of warriors the Valkyries gather for the Final World Battle. The island itself is a tropical paradise deprived of modern technology.
In 2003, shortly after becoming an Elder, Leo was kidnapped and stuck in Valhalla by Chris, a Whitelighter-Witch from the future, later revealed to be his and Piper's son. Piper, Phoebe, and Paige were able to locate Leo with the help of Wyatt. However, the island was highly protected and any intruder would trigger an alarm, alerting the Valkyries to their presence. The Charmed Ones traveled to the island with the pendants, which makes one dressed as a Valkyrie, to retrieve Leo.
After retrieving Leo, the sisters attempted to escape, though they were forced to leave Piper behind when her emotions toward Leo returned. Piper joined the Valkyries to find three Warriors that escaped to San Francisco, after which the Valkyries returned to their island. ("Valhalley of the Dolls, Part 2")
