All Chest locations in the Golden Apple Archipelago – Genshin Impact Summertime Odyssey event

There's no better way to spend summer than looting Chests on an uninhabited island.

The Golden Apple Archipelago is back for Genshin Impact's Summertime Odyssey event, which runs from July 15, 2022, to Aug. 24, 2022. The event features a limited exploration area where you can unlock Teleport Waypoints, collect Treasure Chests, and complete puzzles within the event period.

Read on to find out where to find all the Chests in the Golden Apple Archipelago. Since the islands gradually expand with new mechanics throughout the event period, consider bookmarking this page and checking back for updates every few days!

How to unlock the Golden Apple Archipelago in Genshin Impact

To visit the summer islands, you need to meet the following prerequisites:

  • Reach Adventure Rank 32 or above
  • Complete the Archon Quest Chapter II: Prologue - Autumn Winds, Scarlet Leaves
  • Mona's Story Quest, the Astrolabos Chapter: Act I - Beyond This World's Stars, is optional. During the event period, the required level to complete the quest is reduced to AR 32.

Once you meet all the above requirements, you'll automatically get an Event Quest called The Golden Apple Vacation Returns! But if you choose not to complete Mona's Story Quest, head to the event menu, select Summertime Odyssey, then click Quick Start to get the Event Quest. Following this quest will eventually take you to the Golden Apple Archipelago.

How to find Chests in the Golden Apple Archipelago in Genshin Impact

While some Chests are easy to find as they're just lying around the islands, some are a little trickier to spot. Upon heading to the Chest locations marked above, watch out for obstacles, such as Time Trial Challenges, Bloatty Floatties, and puzzles that could reward you with Chests. Meanwhile, any of the Chests located in the water can be reached using the Waverider.

The GAA islands have a unique gliding challenge indicator, which looks like a floating arrow pointing downward (see the first image above). Additionally, if you head to a Chest's location and find nothing, break the nearby objects as some Chests are hidden behind breakables.

  1. I think there is an error in the day 2 summary of the chests it should be 51 and not 74,

    1. Hi 1bucketpopcorn, thanks for the callout! You’re right – 74 is the cumulative total between days 1 and 2. I’ve updated the article to reflect 23 for day 1 and 51 for day 2.
