To cross rivers and waters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH), you can use your Vaulting Pole to freely travel about your island. See what you'll need to get and craft the Vaulting Pole DIY recipe here!
|1||Use a Vaulting Pole.|
|2||Build a bridge.|
|3||Fill in the river (after unlocking the Island Designer app).|
All of these methods are revealed during the course of the game. The most basic way in the early part of the game, though, is to use the Vaulting Pole.
Equip the Vaulting Pole and press A next to a river to vault over it. This is essential for Mystery Island Tours where there are areas that require a pole for access.
The story will require you to construct a bridge to allow you and your villagers to easily cross rivers.
Additionally, you will be able to build up to 8 bridges in the Resident Services.
Once unlocking the Island Designer, you will be able to terraform land and water. With this feature, you can easily fill in the river with land for easy access.
It also has no cost compared to bridges, and you can get it in an instant instead of waiting for a day.
|1||Find five fish or bugs and give them to Tom Nook.|
|2||Receive Blathers' tent from Tom Nook.|
|3||Place the tent somewhere on the island.|
|4||Wait until the next day, and Blathers' tent will be set up.|
|5||Talk to Blathers inside and receive the DIY Recipe for the Vaulting Pole.|
When giving critters to Tom Nook, be sure to give him bugs and fish of different kinds. It won't count if you give a critter of the same species that you've already submitted!
The second player (or succeeding players) can unlock the Vaulting Pole recipe by completing the DIY Workshop held by Tom Nook.
However, they will not be able to get this until the first player has the recipe.
Unlike most tools, no matter how much you use the Vaulting Pole, it will not break.
