All Minecraft Biomes

Where will you set up your house?

In Minecraft 1.18, world generation mechanics underwent a massive overhaul. One of the biggest structural changes players noticed is that many biomes were dropped, changed, added, or combined. The full list of Minecraft Biomes is completely different from what we've been used to for the past several years. There are now more caves, cliffs, and biomes to explore.

All Overworld Biomes

A total of 51 biomes are officially a part of the game and contribute to the Adventuring Time advancement, all of which are in the Overworld.

However, there are also biomes in alternate dimensions, including The Nether and The End. Here are all the Overworld biomes in Minecraft.
