Minecraft Adventure Maps are almost as old as the game itself. With how big Minecraft has become, thousands of players are joining every single day. This means that every day adds more opportunities for someone to want to make a new Minecraft adventure for us to enjoy. With every new version comes new maps and new mechanics to use, making newer maps bigger and better than ever.
Best Minecraft Adventure Maps
We've picked these maps based on critical components such as Playability, Popularity, and Rating. All maps listed below work in version 1.18. More will be updated as time moves on, so be sure to check back here often for new adventures worth exploring!
Since Minecraft 1.18 was just released, our shortlist is limited. However, as more creators make maps for the newest version, we can expect this list to expand in the coming months!
Elemental Ballad was originally developed for older versions, but is compatible with Minecraft 1.18. This is a relaxing adventure map where your main goal is to collect the 20 orbs that have been placed precariously around the map. Enjoy the beautiful scenery around you and master your skills in the four elements as you collect the orbs. Be sure to look everywhere, not just for the orbs, but for the wonderful scenery!
In Tide, you are stranded on a 1:1 scale recreation of the island from the famous movie Cast Away. Your goal is to simply survive on the island and proceed through the challenges until you can craft a boat and return to civilization. This map was originally designed for Minecraft version 1.17, but the developer says it will work without issue as long as you stay above Y 0. Do you think you can survive on a massive island with no help from the outside world? This is the safest way to check!

Creator: Stratocrafteur, KazerLight | Download Page: MinecraftMaps.com
The Tourist was made for the original Minecraft 1.0 back in 2012. It has been remastered to accommodate for the new world generation mechanics in 1.18. Everything has remained largely the same, including the puzzles, storytelling, and rich atmosphere. This map is perfect for players that want to take a trip down memory lane and play one of the most popular maps around when 1.0 was released.
