How to Fast Travel in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3)

Faerun is a quite a large place, and getting around by foot takes time. Here's how to fast travel in Baldur's Gate 3.

The world of Baldur’s Gate 3 is massive and incredibly impressive. It’s full of rich story, adventure, and loot And as there are a ton of things to see and do as you play, it’s very easy to get swept up in it. One thing to remember is that whenever you find yourself going down an area of side exploration, you can always head back to your camp or fast travel to a location you’ve unlocked to get yourself reset and back on track after scratching your exploration itch. Baldur’s Gate 3 has a great fast travel system that you unlock very early on in the game but with so much content in the game, it can be very easy to forget about.
