The Volcano Summit is the highest point of Eldin Volcano, accessible via the extremely hot passageway towards the north-east. Deep inside, the Fire Sanctuary awaits.

To the Fire Sanctuary

After obtaining the Fireshield Earrings, Link must pass through the Volcano Summit to reach the Fire Sanctuary, which houses one of the sacred flames. When he eventually reaches the sanctuary’s entrance, Link is blocked by an impassable wall of flames. Perhaps he can find help from the Water Dragon at Lake Floria?

Audience with The Fire Dragon

During his mission to complete the Song of the Hero, Link is captured by Bokoblins upon arriving at Eldin Volcano. With some assistance, Link manages to escape the camp, although most of his gear is gone. Should he reach the Volcano Summit, he’ll find the rest of his stolen gear there, as well as the entrance to the Fire Dragon’s lair.

Goddess Cubes

Goddess Cube Location
Number 16 In the western area, with the water spring, leap off the northern ledge and sky-dive to the platform with the cube.
Number 17 Before entering the Fire Sanctuary, turn left while facing the dungeon entrance and climb through the open window. Then Clawshot from platform to platform.
Number 18 After receiving the mission to complete the Song of the Hero, a moving platform will appear in the eastern lava pool. Charge up a Skyward Strike and jump on the platform, then hit the cube as you pass it.


Item Location
Silver Rupee In the western area, with the water spring, sky-dive to Goddess Cube 16, then Clawshot your way back to the top. Towards the very south, blow up the cracked wall with a Bomb.
Heart Piece 19 In the northern area that leads to the Fire Sanctuary, use the Mogma Mitts to burrow in one of the holes along the eastern side of the last room.
Blue Rupee Straight ahead from the entrance, after triggering the stealth section.
The rest of your stolen gear After triggering the stealth section, ride the platform in the eastern lava pool. After going up the stairs, jump left and head north. Thrust your sword into a water plant and throw it into the lava further north so you can get across. Finally, jump down from the ledge and get ready to beat up some baddies.
