The interior of an Igloo

Igloos are constructed of mainly Snow Blocks, with three Blocks of Ice on each of the structure's sides, excluding the entrance.

The basement of an Igloo

All Igloos contain a BedRedstone TorchCrafting TableFurnace, and 12 White Carpets (or sometimes Light Grey Carpets). However, some Igloos can also generate with "Basements" which contain a trapped VillagerZombie Villager, a Brewing Stand, some Red Carpets and a Chest with loot.

Loot from the basement includes a Golden Apple and the Brewing Stand has a Splash Potion of Weakness which can be used to cure the Zombie Villager, which gives the Player the Zombie Doctor Achievement. The basement can be accessed by a Trapdoor hidden under a carpet.

Loot Table for Igloo Chest

There will be at least 3, and at most 8 items from the following list in the chest in an Igloo.

Item Chance Count
Apple 23.8% 1-3
Coal 23.8% 1-4
Golden Nugget 15.9% 1-3
Stone Axe 3.2% 1
Rotten Flesh 15.9% 1
Emerald 1.6% 1
Wheat 15.9% 2-3

In addition, there will always be 1 Golden Apple.


  • Igloos are the second naturally generated structure to spawn with Zombie Villagers inside.
  • Igloos contain Redstone Torches because regular Torches would cause the Ice to melt.
  • Igloos are very useful if a world does not contain any Villages as the Zombie Villager can be cured and bred with the other Villager.
  • Monster Eggs can sometimes spawn instead of Stone Bricks in an Igloo's basement.
