Start by heading towards Albert’s Shipyard and purchasing the Icebreaker Boat Improvement from him.

This upgrade requires:

  • 10 Iron Ingots
  • 12 Oak Planks
  • 18 Linen Fabrics
  • 1 Spirit Flower
  • 5 Slates
  • 800 Glims

You may check out our list of all boat improvements for a more thorough breakdown of how to get these in-game items.

Afterwards, your boat should be able to break through the ice barrier blocking the region.

Accessing the Mines

Once you’re on the island, you’ll be stopped by a guard outside. He will tell you that entering requires skill, and the key for the mines is only given to those who have passed the “Training Wheels” Shenanigans.

It requires these abilities:

If you already have these abilities then you can enter. If not, then you can check our guides linked above on how to get each of Stella’s abilities.

Once you do get inside the mines, you’ll find mining spots for Coal and Marble, all of which can help you stock up on materials.

Kalstein Mines is one of the trickier areas to navigate in Spiritfarer. So here are some tips to make sure you don’t get lost inside:

  • Arrows indicate that the passage is one-way.
  • You can find hidden passages by looking at ropes that go into the wall.
  • Gold lines mean there’s a zipline.
  • Green lines mean there’s an air draft.
  • Purple lines mean that you need to use Dash to clear the gap.

Taking note of these tips will make sure you find your way around all of the mine’s secrets.
