Of the many collectibles in Hogwarts Legacy, Landing Platforms are one of the few that do not appear as icons on the map and are exclusively found in the Highlands. Players must use a broom or Mount to reach most of them. There is no specific puzzle needed to solve the Landing Platforms, simply dismounting and standing on the platform will trigger the collectible. The platform will begin spinning, and the cauldrons will light on fire when it is done. After starting the first one, the Challenge will unlock under the Exploration category in the Field Guide.
There are 20 total Landing Platforms scattered across the open world map of Hogwarts Legacy. Some of them are harder or easier to spot, but most of them will be on high points. There are a few exceptions that are noted in the directions below. They are grouped generally by section of the map, including the Northern Regions, Hogwarts Valley & Feldcroft, and the Southern Regions.
Landing Platforms in the Northern Regions
There are six total landing platforms in the northern parts of the Highlands. Of those, there is only one in South Hogwarts, which encompasses most of the Castle grounds.
1. North Ford Bog #1
Go to Pitt-Upon-Ford and look up toward the clefts to the West. The landing platform is on top of a wooden platform on the cliffs above.
2. Hogsmeade Valley #1
This one is on the northern border of the region, very near the North Ford Bog line. There is a line of balloons just by the landing platform. It is also between a small and medium Bandit camp, on another cliff.
3. Hogsmeade Valley #2
This one is hidden among the rocks just above a Merlin Trial. From the site of the Merlin Trial in Hogwarts Legacy, look directly up and Northwest. This is at the southern end of Hogsmeade Valley.
4. North Hogwarts #1
This one is on the cliffs above the river near a small bandit camp.
5. North Hogwarts #2
The castle can be seen to the Southeast from this platform. It is North of the river but slightly lower than the highest cliff.
6. South Hogwarts #1
This one can be a little tricky to spot. It is just South of the Hamlet of Aranshire. Follow the train tracks a little way South, keeping a sharp eye on the cliffs to the East. It is hidden just below two rocky formations that have a tunnel through the center of them.
Landing Platforms in Hogwarts Valley and Feldcroft
There are seven total landing platforms in Hogwarts Valley & Feldcroft.
7. Hogwarts Valley #1
This one is mixed in with a lot of other collectibles in Hogwarts Legacy, in and around the ruined castle. There is a Bandit camp, a Merlin Trial, an ancient magic hotspot, and a Beast Den all nearby. The platform is on the ruins across from the main castle.
8. Hogwarts Valley #2
On the cliff face, flying from the castle toward Feldcroft. The Hogwarts Castle can be seen to the Northeast, and it is near the top of the narrow section of the map above Feldcroft.
9. Hogwarts Valley #3
This one is actually at a lower elevation than a higher one. Go to the Mine’s Eye and go to the furthest point where the overlook is. Look nearly straight down, and the landing platform should be visible just above the road.
10. Feldcroft #1
For this one, go to Irondale and look Southwest toward the castle ruins in Hogwarts Legacy on the opposing cliffs across the river. The landing platform will be just before the castle ruins.
11. Feldcroft #2
This one is in the same area as the nearby Ancient Magic Hotspot. It is just north of that hotspot in the second bit of ruins above.
12. Feldcroft #3
This one is at the Southern point of the Feldcroft map, nearly the sea. It is in the cliff above the South Feldcroft Floo Flame travel point in the house below.
13. Feldcroft #4
From the bandit camp, fly directly Southeast and up. The landing platform is high on the cliffs above.
Landing Platforms in the Southern Regions
At the far reaches of the map, there are seven total landing platforms in the Southern regions.
14. Marunweem Lake #1
On the bridge across the river on top of the East tower, nearby the Ancient Magic Hotspot.
15. Marunweem Lake #2
16. Poidsear Coast #1
This one is located directly West of the Marunweem Ruins Floo Flame, on the peninsula extending into the sea from Poidsear Coast.
17. Manor Cape #1
This one is located below the cliffs, set within the rock below. From the gazebo on the cliff above, look directly down and search the cliff face. The landing platform will also how bright Ashwinder eggs nearby to help spot it.
18. Manor Cape #2
This one is on top of a standalone rock, jetting from the sea. It is also right next to the start of a line of balloons.
19. Clagmar Coast #1
This one is on the south end of the region in Hogwarts Legacy, looking out over the sea. It is on the last bit of land before the rocky beach.
20. Cragcroftshire #1
This one is on top of a tall rock sticking out of the sea.
