Human navigation technology is just catching up to what animals like these can do by instinct.
It typically takes up to three generations of butterflies to make the complete journey. This means that the navigation information is genetically programmed.

Meet the animal kingdom’s most stunning navigators — the Arctic tern, homing pigeons, the monarch butterfly, and the desert ant, among others.
“Infinite Patterns” starts with a simple triangle and builds to the most magnificent representations of human and nature’s designs.
