Want to exacerbate your survivability? Play through this lava lakes-ice plains biome to experience a more challenging Minecraft environment -- no Goron Tunics sold here!
From the spawn point, head north to locate an igloo (coordinates: 12, 20) precariously built on top of a lava lake. Inside, you can find a secret entrance to a basement that contains gold nuggets, wheat, rotten flesh, and a stone ax. (Mining through the wall left of the cell will reveal a small cluster of iron ore.)
