Top 20 Minecraft Seeds for Minecraft 1.11 (December 2016)

Find lots of igloos and woodland mansions in this winter selection of top 20 Minecraft seeds.

The winter has arrived, and it's time to explore those vast icy biomes in Minecraft 1.11. It can be really hard to find tiny igloos on such huge territory, and it is even harder to locate the ones with the secret treasure chambers that are usually full of golden apples.

We present you with many great Minecraft seeds, which have igloos that actually spawn along with the secret basements (slides 2-6, 12-14). Also, this selection includes some more woodland mansions that have just been released for the 1.11 udpate (slides 7-11). So there is plenty to discover and more.

Don't forget to check the rest of the woodland mansions in the previous top 20 Minecraft seeds selection.
