Lost Ark's Arkesia World Map features several of the game's continents that players can access by travelling across the open and hazardous waters. Between the continents are unique and unexplored islands where riches and threats await those who dare to visit.

Adventure Islands are one of the many endgame activities you can do once you've reached Level 50 and hold an Item Level of 250. Here's how players can find them, what quests they can complete, and the rewards to be unlocked in Lost Ark.

What is an Adventure Island in Lost Ark?

In Lost Ark, players will encounter two main types of islands: static and limited-time islands, for which Adventure Islands is categorised under the latter. These islands are not as accessible as static islands since they only appear at random times throughout the day.

Once the island is about to spawn, you will be alerted to its location, after which a whirlpool will appear. Then, the island will surface, and you will have three minutes to gain entry before it's no longer accessible.

Most Adventure and Timed Islands have an Island Event that players can choose to complete while active. This typically involves a co-op quest, which in most cases tasks you with defeating an Island Boss to earn rewards.

Additionally, players can find other island activities throughout the island, either given by an NPC or triggered automatically once arriving on the island. Nevertheless, the main reason you should be completing Adventure Islands in Lost Ark is to obtain the Island Token, which you can exchange for exclusive rewards.

However, once you have a few Island Tokens, you can exchange these for exclusive rewards when visiting Opher at The Lonely Island, located southwest of the Arthetine continent.
