The Iceless Icehouse – Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Provide a block of Ice to the Iceless Icehouse in Gerudo desert to earn some rupees.

In Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the Iceless Icehouse side quest requires you to create ice for a Gerudo merchant. It is a simple puzzle that can be completed in seconds if you know where to look and what to do.

The Iceless Icehouse side quest is given to you by Anche, the Icehouse Keeper. When you complete her request, she will reward you with a Purple Rupee and promises to reward you more, but she wants more time. 

Read on to find out the demands of Anche in Zelda: TotK and how you can complete the Iceless Icehouse quest.

Talk to Anche in the Northern Icehouse

To start this quest, you need to talk to Anche (-3749, -2282, 0033) in the Northern Icehouse of the Gerudo Desert.

This area is to the north of Gerudo Town and the Gerudo Sanctuary. You reach it by traveling northwest from the Kara Kara Bazaar.

As this is an extremely hot area during the day and freezing cold at night, we recommend purchasing Desert Voe and the Snowquill armor sets before venturing there. You can also cook heat and cold-resistant meals to survive extreme weather conditions.

Once you reach the Northern Icehouse, talk to Anche, who wants to have a block of ice. Apparently, the pond there is no longer cold enough to create one. This will start the quest and add it to your journal.

Create and reshape a block of Ice

When you talk to Anche, she will tell you that the temperature is too hot, so she cannot make ice. She wants your help in making ice.

This is a simple request, and you can complete it by hitting the water with a sapphire-fused weapon or throwing an Ice Fruit into the water. You can also use White Chuchu Jelly to create an ice block.

Lo and behold! You will see that a block of ice will form in the water when you do. Anche will be surprised at your deeds and have another request. She wants you to put the ice in the nearby alcove.

The problem is that the ice block is too big. Ultrahand the block out of the water and then momentarily return to the surface.

Grab the stick near the campfire, light it up, and then go back to the block of ice and stand near it. Stay there until the ice block melts to half its size, and then quickly put the torch away.

It should be small enough to be put into the alcove, so pick it up with Ultrahand and do so.

Quest Reward

Now talk to Anche, and you will be rewarded with a Purple Rupee (50 Rupees). This will complete The Iceless Icehouse side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
