The Elden Ring map is vast and full of secrets. Even the hand-draw depiction of the Lands Between is worth looking at closely, as it has all kinds of hints as to what you might find. If you’re away from the game (or even if you’re currently playing), inspecting a full and complete map can help you work out where to go next. Below you’ll find the entire Elden Ring map, including the complete map of the underground areas and the secret optional locations.
If you’re having trouble uncovering the map yourself, check out our map fragment location guide to help you fill in your parchment.
Full Elden Ring map
The full Elden Ring map is split into roughly 10 main areas. Though the game can be completed without visiting them all, it is worth taking the time to explore as it will yield Smithing Stones and other valuable upgrades, like Golden Seeds and Sacred Tears.
Limgrave is split into two distinct areas, Limgrave proper and the Mistwoods, which lies to the east.
Liurnia of the Lakes map
Liurnia of the Lakes is the large strip of land and water up the eastern side of the world. The highest point is in the Moonlight Altar, an area accessible by progressing through Ranni’s questline.
Caelid is the reddish territory to the east, an area that is accessible early in the game but more suited for mid- to late-game play.
Altus Plateau map
Altus Plateau is a sort of no man’s land between the areas that leads to the royal capital.
Leyndell, Royal Capital map
Leyndell, Royal Capital is the main focus of Elden Ring, a place you will visit countless times. This is also where you can start the Dung Eater questline.
Mt. Gelmir map
Mt. Gelmir is a twisting and turning area that can be difficult to navigate. Players can be transported here early or find their way here after reaching the Altus Plateau.
Mountaintops of the Giants map
The Mountaintops of the Giants is one of the last main areas in the game and one with few fast travel points. Make sure you take the time to unlock the Heretical Rise tower while you’re here.
Crumbling Farum Azula map
By the time you’ve reached the Crumbling Farum Azula you’ll be right near the end of the game. This is basically a run to the finish, but take your time exploring so you can fully upgrade your weapons.
Consecrated Snowfield map
The Consecrated Snowfield is an optional area that is only accessed via the Grand Lift of Rold if you’ve got the secret medallions.
Miquella’s Haligtree map
If you’ve made your way through the Consecrated Snowfield, you’ll reach Miquella’s Haligtree, home to one of the most notorious bosses in Elden Ring.
Siofra River map
Siofra River is one of the first underground areas you’re likely going to find in Elden Ring. This area is also home to Mohgwyn Palace, though that location is accessible later on or through Varre’s questline.
Ainsel River map
Ainsel River is a dark and cavernous location that will take a while to fully explore. It is also home to the Lake of Rot.
Deeproot Depths map
Finally, the Deeproot Depths could very well be the last underground location you fully explore in Elden Ring. This is where you will reach the end of Fia’s questline.
There is plenty to discover by looking at the Elden Ring map. Even minor details that are drawn on the parchment might hold a secret to discover.
