One of the most frustrating parts about Minecraft is that you can feel like you are in a retelling of goldilocks when looking for the best place to start your latest build. You can use random seeds or search the internet for hours before finally finding one that is just right. This is particularly true for biomes like Taiga, which tend to generate less often than others (or at least it feels like it when we go looking for one). Luckily, some great seeds can spawn right in the middle of a Taiga or somewhere nearby. Here is our list of the best taiga biome seeds we have found so far.

On a side note, if you want a map that is just taiga and nothing else, you can create one in the world settings. After you start creating a new world, click on “more world options” to get to a nice customization screen. Click through the “world type” box until you get to the “single biome” option. A new box called “customize” will appear just beneath it. Click on it, scroll through your options until you see one you like, then hit “done” and create your new world.

This seed doesn’t spawn you in the Taiga biome, but it isn’t too far away. The biome is 1000 blocks from the spawn, and you can get there by crossing an ocean and a forest. The biome is right next to a large birch forest and has a small village in the center of it.

Seeds like this one are rare. You spawn in a massive mega taiga biome that extends over 1000 blocks in every direction from spawn. A small village straddles the taiga and the ocean on the northern edge of the biome. This world will require a lot of exploration for you to get out of the taiga and find other resources.

This seed doesn’t start you in the taiga biome, but there is one close by. You start in a plains biome and with a small trail of spruce that will lead you to the Tiaga. There are two villages in the taiga and the nearby birch forest biome. The taiga is great for a base and has a plains and birch biome nearby that will give you plenty of other resources. There is also a series of snowy mountains you will need to cross to get to it. The mountains have plenty of flat surfaces for farms or creating large mining projects.

This seed spawns you right outside a village in a huge taiga biome. If you turn around and walk for a little under 1000 blocks, you will hit a pillager tower on the edge of the taiga and a birch forest. Many other useful biomes surround the taiga, including a dark oak forest, a birch forest, a mountain range, and a swamp.

The seed spawns you on an island in the middle of a tropical ocean. There are two continents nearby, but you should check the small desert island close to spawn for a shipwreck first and grab some useful resources. The nearest continent starts with a plains biome that runs into a flower forest with a sprawling taiga just beyond it. The second continent is much smaller and has a mountain, dark oak, and birch forest to play in. There are also some glaciers nearby that are perfect for harvesting ice for ice-boat tracks. This is the most interesting seed on this list and has a little bit of everything, depending on your tastes.
