Fancy a treasure hunt? Then you’re in luck. Plenty of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom old maps are littered throughout the Sky Islands floating above Hyrule. Each one resides in a chest – sometimes obtained after defeating a Flux Construct – and has the location of some hidden treasure in the depths below Hyrule. So, we’ve got a guide to finding these old maps – or if you’d rather skip the guff and get the coordinates straight off, we’ve got that too.

Anyway, let’s dive into Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom old maps guide.
You can find Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom old maps on Sky Islands floating above Hyrule. They can be a reward for solving a puzzle, beating an enemy, or just being an inquisitive soul and checking every nook and cranny.
Most of the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom sky islands that house these maps are one of three types – an island with a construction puzzle full of Zonai devices for you to construct, an island only reachable with that vehicle often has an old map on it, and or a circular island with a boss on it who drops the old map. It’s not uncommon for these types of islands to appear close together and have more than one old map on them.
If you don’t fancy flying through the Sky Islands to find some old maps, we’ve got some of the locations of the treasure they hold the secret to. You can see that we haven’t uncovered all the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom depths just yet – but you can get a rough idea from the photo above.
