The World Map is where players choose the destination for their explorer's next expedition. There are generally 2-4 destination choices between each expedition.
Each destination option has an indicated biome type. Expedition 1 will always be a choice between a Drylands and Jungle biome. Arctic and Desert can be options for Expedition 2+. Expedition 6 will always be to a single Prehistoric biome. In addition to the choices available to the player, rivals' chosen destinations are also indicated.
Destination choices also list certain locations that will be present on their map, visible when their flag is hovered or clicked on once. The most important location indicated here is the Golden Pyramid and whether it is buried. This section of the world map also indicates how many of each location type can be found there. Locations that are shown here include:
- Freya Stark is a exception for the rules on destination choices, as she will always have at least one Desert biome to choose from, including for Expeditions 1 and 6.
- A Prehistoric destination choice can be unlocked early in the game by exploring certain caves or cenotes during an expedition. The New World will be unlocked and shown as a choice on the player's next world map.
