Igloo in Minecraft

This Minecraft tutorial explains all about Igloos with screenshots.

Where to Find an Igloo

In Minecraft, an igloo is a structure that spawns naturally in the game. It looks like a house made out of snow and is only found in the Ice Plains and Cold Taiga biomes.

Here is a picture of what an igloo looks like:


The igloo is made from snow blocks with 2 windows made out of ice blocks.

TIP: Try using the /locate command to quickly find an igloo!

Entrance to the Igloo

To go inside the igloo, find the doorway at the front of the igloo.

Inside the Igloo

Once inside the igloo, you will find a bed, a crafting table, a furnace and a redstone torch.

If you are very lucky, some igloos (not all) have a trapdoor found under the carpet. Mine the carpet to look for a trapdoor.

If you find a trapdoor, open it and head down the ladder.

Secret Basement in Igloo

At the bottom of the ladder, you will find a hidden basement in the igloo.

Inside this igloo basement is a chest filled with goodies including a golden apple. You will also find a brewing stand, a cauldron and a potted cactus. Look inside the brewing stand to see if there are any potions!

At the far end of the basement are two cells with iron bars. In the left cell, you will find a Villager that you can trade with. In the right cell, you will find a Zombie Villager.

Congratulations, you just learned about the structure called Igloo in Minecraft.

If you are ever trekking across a frozen tundra in Minecraft, keep your eyes peeled for igloos. These naturally generated structures can help keep you safe as well as provide some loot if they are generated with a basement. Igloos can also be found as part of villages in snowy biomes. These snowy structures can be helpful to find if you are lost and need a place to stay for the night.

Where to find Igloos in Minecraft?

Igloos will only spawn in specific snowy biomes. You can find them in snowy tundras or snowy taigas, but you cannot find them in ice spikes, snowy mountains, or snowy taiga hills. Keep your eyes peeled for an out of place rise of snow to spot igloos. The interiors are relatively cozy with carpeted floors, a bed to use, a furnace, and a crafting table.

Snowy Tundra

You may find that the furnace is cooking something when you arrive. This will melt the ice windows of the igloo and seems to be an intentional interaction.

Types of Igloos in Minecraft

There are three types of igloos in Minecraft. They all look visually similar on the outside, but only igloos with underground basements hold plentiful loot. You can find a regular igloo without a basement, a village igloo, and an igloo with an underground basement. To see if an igloo is generated with a basement, break the carpet in the middle furthest from the entrance to see if there is a trapdoor.

These igloos hold some secrets, and someone had to be here originally.

What do Igloos have in Minecraft?

If you find an igloo with a basement, head down the ladder to unearth its secrets. When you arrive in the basement, you will be greeted with what seems to be an abandoned experiment.

Minecraft Igloos with basement

In the basement you will find a chest with a golden apple, a villager with a random profession and a zombie villager imprisoned by iron bars, and a brewing stand. This seems to be a naturally generated way to teach players about curing zombie villagers. If you happen to find an igloo with a basement you can use this as an opportunity to generate a specific villager inventory. You can take advantage of the arrangement of the villager and its proximity to a zombie by converting him to a zombie and back to a regular villager to get discounts on his trades.

The brewing stand contains one splash potion of weakness and the chest contains one golden apple so you can cure the zombie villager immediately if you would like.

You can also keep this area marked as a trading site as the villagers cannot go too far from the basement of the igloo.


Igloos are the first naturally generated structure that uses signs that have text on them.

Due to the generation of igloos, if an underground structure contains a bed and a villager, players can unknowingly cause raids to spawn.


Do Igloos melt in Minecraft?

You may find that the ice window has melted, but you cannot melt snow blocks even with fire or lava. The water from the ice window can be problematic, but you can remedy this by simply removing the window entirely.

Does every igloo have a basement in Minecraft?

Only half of every igloo contains an underground structure. Check underneath the carpeted floors of an igloo to confirm whether it contains a basement or not. If you see a trapdoor you have found an igloo with a basement, if you only find snow blocks it is best to move on.

Why are there villagers trapped in the basement of igloos?

There is no confirmed answer as to why there are villagers kept captive in igloos. We are left to make our own conclusions. It seems that Mojang added these to teach players about how to cure zombie villagers in a contained setting. Anything further than that is up to the player to decide.

Igloos in Minecraft: Everything players need to know

Igloos are a semi-rare structure in Minecraft that can act as a shelter in the harsh frozen tundras of the Overworld. All Igloos will contain a bed, allowing players to stay the night on a long expedition. Due to this, Igloos are never a sore sight!

Igloos may not just provide shelter, as some may contain a secret passageway leading to a large basement. This basement contains useful items that may assist players on their adventures.

Igloos are only able to spawn in the Snowy Tundra and Snow Taiga biomes, resulting in them being decently rare to stumble upon.

Players will most likely have better luck searching in the Snowy Tundra biome, as they aren't covered in a dense blanket of Spruce trees.

Igloos cannot be found in Snowy Mountains, Ice Spikes, Snowy Taiga Hills, or any other variants than the ones listed.

From the surface, Igloos may be hard to spot as they will blend in with their snowy environment.

Igloos will look like a semi-sphere of snow, with a "window" made of ice. When entered, all Igloos will contain a bed, furnace, and crafting table. There will also be carpet laid on the floor of the igloo, for extra comfort.

Some Igloos, however, will contain a secret basement if this carpet is stripped away!

Secret Basement

There is a 50% chance for all Igloos to house a secret basement!

If the player digs up the carpet, they may discover a trapdoor which leads to a very long ladder. After going all the way down, players will run into the scene shown in the image above.

In this basement, players will find a Cauldron, Brewing Stand, and a Chest. Players will also see two mobs trapped behind bars: a Villager and a Zombie Villager. Players can easily transform this area into a village due to this, especially after cleansing the Zombie Villager.

The chest in the image above contained one golden apple, some coal, and a bunch of wheat.

Step 1: What You Need

What you need to build a igloo is

128 Snow Blocks

1 Wooden Door

89 Snow Blocks (optional for a floor)

Step 2: Base

So start by making a base. Just follow the pictures. It is only 1 block high.

Step 3: Doorway

Now follow the picture and build what you see.

Step 4: Layering

Now make another layer one block smaller. And continue making smaller layers all the way up.

Step 5: Optional

A optional step is to replace the floor with snow blocks. To do that just dig out the dirt floor and replace the dirt blocks with snow.

Step 6: Finishing Touches

Now just add a door. Something you can play around with is just getting snow (not snow blocks) and playing around with different heights of snow. Now your done. I hope you enjoyed this instructable & it helps you. Don't forget to vote.

Minecraft igloo

Igloo top.png
Igloo bottom.png

Igloos are structures that are naturally generated in snowy biomes. They are small round structures constructed primarily of snow blocks.


Igloos naturally generate in the snowy tundra, snowy taiga, and snowy slopes biomes, but not in snowy mountains, ice spikes, snowy taiga hills, or other variants.


Main article: /Structure

Igloos are composed of snow blocks, sheltering a carpeted interior containing a bed, furnace and crafting table.

In half of all igloos, an oak trapdoor can be found under the carpet (the third white carpet straight ahead from the doorway), leading down a long ladder shaft to a basement. This passageway and the basement are built from stone brick, some of which are infested blocks. In this basement there is a brewing stand, a cauldron, a chest, and beyond the far wall, behind iron bars in two different cages, are a plains‌[JE only]/snowy‌[BE only]villager and a plains zombie villager.[1] The zombie villager can be cured with a golden apple and a splash potion of weakness, both found inside the igloo. However, this may make the zombie villager lose its profession.

The cauldron is 23 full, and the brewing stand contains a splash potion of Weakness.

Igloos that generate without a basement have a snow block in place of the trapdoor. The villagers, brewing stand, and chest are absent in this case.

One may access the individual structures of an igloo by using structure blocks to manually load them from the folder in version.jar. To do so, set a structure block to Load mode, enter , and press . The individual structures are , , .

Professions of villagers and zombie villagers[]

In Java Edition, the generated villager is always unemployed,[2] even though there are some job site blocks like brewing stand or cauldron around. However, if the player breaks the iron bars in front of the villager, it finds one of the job site blocks and changes its profession to cleric or leatherworker. The generated zombie villager always has the profession of cleric.

In Bedrock Edition, the villager is with a random profession while the zombie villager is unemployed; although it can change its profession to cleric or leatherworker after being cured, due to the presence of the brewing stand and cauldron.


See also: Chest loot

In Java Edition, each igloo chest contains items drawn from 2 pools, with the following distribution:

In Bedrock Edition, each igloo chest contains items drawn from 2 pools, with the following distribution:

  1. abThe size of stacks (or for unstackable items, number) of this item on any given roll.
  2. abThe weight of this item relative to other items in the pool.
  3. abThe odds of finding any of this item in a single chest.
  4. abThe number of items expected per chest, averaged over a large number of chests.
  5. abThe average number of chests the player should expect to search to find any of this item.

Issues relating to "Igloo" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.


  • In Java Edition, if a number of items in the igloo furnace are smelted, the light generated melts the igloo window, turning the ice into a water source block. This is intentional.[3]
  • Igloos are internally classified as a temple.‌[Bedrock Edition only]
  • The igloo is the first structure to use signs with text on them.
  • As of Village and Pillage, igloos with basements can be easily registered as villages, due to having one villager, a bed, and brewing stands and cauldrons, which count as job sites. However, the villager needs to be freed from the iron bars to claim a job site, or the zombie villager cured and freed, to be able to register as a village.
    • This also means raids can be triggered on the igloo.
  • It is possible for an igloo to generate on a cliff or other incline, causing its secret area to be wholly or partially exposed.

All our relatives are gathering. I don't really like such training, but once a year I had to endure this day or two. We went to the village on Saturday. We bought a lot of groceries and various gifts for relatives. I asked my father to let me practice driving a car a little, as I planned to go to a driving school in the spring and get my license.
