Hogwarts Legacy

All Butterfly Locations in Hogwarts Legacy

Craig Robinson

If you fancy turning your Vivarium and Room of Requirement into comfy, 3D sims-like worlds, filled with decorations, then you’ll need collection items. There are plenty of collection chests throughout the world. But, not all of them grant all the collection pieces. Instead, you are going to need to find butterflies through the Highlands. These butterflies will deliver you to otherwise invisible collections of chests. However, they are scattered throughout the land. So, to make the hunt easier, we have curated a page dedicated to finding all "Butterflies" iconButterflies in Hogwarts Legacy.

Below you will find a list of all the Hogwarts Legacy Butterfly locations. We have attached an image of each one, alongside notes on how to find each one. If you would rather track these on a map, then we have an interactive map and database, fitted with a table of each map marker to help you on your hunt.

  1. Pitt-Upon-Ford: There is a set of butterflies if you take the eastern road out of the "Pitt-Upon-Ford" iconPitt-Upon-Ford the Hamlet.
  2. Forbidden Forest: A few Poacher camps lie in the heart of the "Forbidden Forest" iconForbidden Forest. There is one particular one on the east side of the Forbidden Forest, which faces the mountain. We recommend traveling to Jack Daw’s Tomb, then flying your broom over the pond water to the northeast side. You should then head east towards the mountain and follow the path slightly north to reach these.
  3. Hogsmeade: Start at "Hogsmeade" iconHogsmeade, and travel directly east towards a large hill incline. You should see a road along this hill that ravels west in a curved angle southwards, and a road that heads further east, with a fork heading south, which goes up the hill. Partway along the southern section of this road are butterflies, which take you toward a Merlin Trial guarded by "Poacher Tracker" iconPoacher Trackers.
  4. North Hogwarts Region: There is a large stream flowing throughout the North Hogwarts area. Follow this stream along, and partway through the northern side of its bank, you will find a flock of butterflies.
