Ice Spikes are a rare biome in Minecraft, which spawn in the Snowy Tundra. This Biome consists of large icicles and towers made out of packed ice. These spikes vary in size and design, with all grass blocks also being replaced by snow.
These areas are desolate, with no buildings or other structures spawning, so there isn’t much to see. However, animals such as Polar Bears and Rabbits will still spawn naturally in abundance.
Below, we’ve put together a few seeds which will allow you to explore the Ice Spikes Biome in Minecraft. These Seeds where tested on 1.14 Java Edition, however it should work on previous and future versions. For more Minecraft guides and best-of content, check out our dedicated area here!
Spikes at Spawn
Our first seed will spawn you on the edge of an Ice Spikes Biome. As soon as you spawn, you will be inside a plains forest. Walk forward a few blocks and you will see the scene above. It’s a good seed for building a base, as you aren’t trapped in the winter biome and have access to a lot of natural resources back in the plains forest.
When you enter the above seed, you will spawn in the location shown above. You will be right next to an Ice Spikes Biome. However, compared to the previous seed, leaving the winter biome could take a while. There doesn’t seem to be much greenery around, just snow. Far into the distance, you can see a Spruce Forest, where you can collect wood and food.
Village & Ice Spikes
After using this Minecraft Seed, you won’t spawn too close to an Ice Spikes Biome. Instead, you will be right next to a winter village which has an igloo. Here’s a good place to start, you’ll have access to food, shelter, defences and trades with the villagers. Start walking North-East in game to find the Ice Spikes biome.
Finally, we have a survival island styled seed. Upon entering the above seed, you will spawn on the island shown in the above screenshot. There are all of the materials you need to start building a base, including a huge ravine cutting through the island which you can explore for loot and minerals. Surrounding the island is large Ice Spikes. I recommend building a boat for this seed!
