Mystery Islands are areas you can visit during Animal Crossing using Mystery Island Tour. Some islands can only be visited at specific times in the game. To learn more, we have prepared this Animal Crossing New Horizons Mystery Island Tour guide.
The concept is that you can use a Nook Miles Ticket to visit an island that has been deserted, and there you can harvest various resources.
Islands are alternate sources for gathering the items you need to further improve your island and open up more possibilities for your residents. Traveling to these islands to raise money and/or obtain certain species to introduce into your museum is definitely a good idea.
Animal Crossing New Horizons Mystery Island Tour
Mystery Islands can be visited by heading to Orville at the airport and joining the Mystery Tour. This is quite a fun feature as it dives really deep into the game’s exploration mechanic; you can find islands with entirely different settings and maybe get some inspiration.
Getting to said island takes around one Nook Miles ticket, and once you’re there, you can start collecting resources you might have missed on your own island.
Mystery Island Resources
You can find fruits and even coconuts that you couldn’t find on your own island. Each mystery island has a resident who can be invited to come and live on your island. Some islands have specific resources that you can find exclusive to their biomes.
Probably the best island in terms of agricultural bells. Here you can find two articles; namely tarantulas and bamboo. You can sell each tarantula for 8,000 Bells.
That’s a lot, it’s like 8 bags of bells right next to a single tarantula. Go ahead and grow a bunch of them to solve all your money problems.
You can find all the bamboo you need because this island has a bamboo forest ready to be harvested. Go ahead and grow all the young spring bamboo you need, because you can’t find them exactly on your own island.
On this island, you can find rare tulips, which you would otherwise have to go through the hassle of crossing to get. These tulips grow natively on this island; just bring a shovel to dig them up and bring them back to your island.
Dorsal fin fish island
This island is a fisherman’s dream as it can offer you the following possible catches.
- Dorsal-finned fish (duh)
- ocean sunfish
Island with koi carp, pink and orange roses and emperor butterflies
This island produces pink and orange roses, as well as emperor butterflies that spawn here endlessly. You can also go Koi here to fish.
As the name suggests, this island has infinitely spawning scorpions that you can capture if you wish. If they sting you, you will return to the mystery island.
On this island, if you try to fish anything, you will only find garbage; so yeah, it’s not exactly an island you’re going to want to lose a ticket to
