To get to Volcano Manor in Elden Ring, Tarnished can brave the perilous path up Mt. Gelmir or receive an invitation from one of the manor’s members.
Housing the clan led by Mistress Tanith, the Volcano Manor is an enormous estate in Elden Ring established on the top of Mt. Gelmir. Once players reach this Legacy Dungeon, they will be able to progress through a series of quests that task the player to assassinate fellow Tarnished from other worlds in defiance to the Fingers and the Erdtree. Whether the protagonist shares such views with the Volcano Manor in Elden Ring will depend on individual preference. Yet, the mansion does offer a variety of activities and rewards outside of completing the questline.
There are three primary ways to reach the Volcano Manor in Elden Ring. The first is by climbing up Mt. Gelmir and braving the many obstacles, enemies, and bosses that exist along the way. An alternative method to reach the manor is accepting an invitation from Rya after completing her request. The third, rather obscure way is dying to a hidden miniboss in Raya Lucaria and teleporting to the caverns beneath the manor. This route essentially serves as a shortcut to the first, leading players to a location closer to the Volcano Manor, bypassing much of the ascension. However, a boss fight is required to progress this method.

Once players have made it to the Atlus Plateau via the Grand Lift of Dectus or the covert pathway through Ruin-Strewn Precipice, they can begin their journey up Mt. Gelmir. Starting from the Erdtree-Gazing Hill Site of Grace, players must travel up a small ridge to the Wyndhan Ruins. Then, head north up the Seethewater River until reaching a fork in the canyon path at Seethewater Cave. Next, go left until arriving at Fort Laied and journey south past the Magma Wyrm’s lair. Riding atop Torrent will negate any fire damage done to the player.

After passing through Hermit Village and leaping past Demi-Human Queen Maggie, they must continue to the north and climb a series of ladders until reaching the Ninth Mt. Gelmir Campsite. Then, ascend to the Full-Grown Fallingstar Beast’s lair and jump across the western gorge with Torrent in Elden Ring to arrive at the entrance of Volcano Manor.
The second way to reach Volcano Manor is much easier yet less apparent than the first. To begin, speak with Rya, the Volcano Manor’s scout, at the Birdseye Telescope in southern Liurnia. She will request the player retrieve her necklace from a thug named Blackguard, located at the Boilprawn Shack in the northwest. Then, return to Rya to receive the Volcano Manor Invitation. Tarnished will encounter her once more at the Grand Lift of Dectus in Atlus Plateau, where she will offer to teleport the player directly to the manor.
The final way to reach the manor is being killed by the Abductor Virgin at the bottom of the waterwheel in Raya Lucaria. Keep in mind that only the “trap” attack will successfully teleport the player to a cavern location in Mt. Gelmir. To leave the cave and enter Hermit Village, players must defeat two Abductor Virgins guarding the exit. This method is the most challenging of the three routes but rewards players with the unique weapon, the Inquisitor’s Girandole.
