  • On a hill just north of the Wailing Woods forest
  • Atop the mountain on the east portion of Shifty Shafts
  • In the southern area of the map, east of the river and west of Fatal Fields
  • In the Iceberg biome, north of the newly added Frosty Flights.

Remember that you only need to visit two out of the four total giant candy canes spread across the Fortnite map in order to complete the challenge.
