Building an Alaska Village from Discovery Works
If you dream in pixels, or if you’ve actually tried mining for coal in your backyard, then odds are you know a little bit (or too much) about Minecraft. Either way, the challenge is now on.
For your next Minecraft mission, go bold, go daring and go Alaska-style. Check out these fun and informative tutorials to help breathe a little Alaska adventure into your Minecraft schemes.
Build an Igloo
The final product from iOBu
Clear out some sheep and build a breath-taking igloo that would make any Eskimo jealous. This tutorial promises a “small house inside an igloo;” and it delivers. The final product includes an interior complete with a chandelier, an ice-enclosed bedroom, a jukebox, bookshelves, and even some witchcraft.
Samhonestguy shows us how to fish and cook our catch!
This outing requires no fancy lures or expensive poles. Just build a bobber, watch it sink and land a lunker. The tutorial even shows how to cook your catch via a furnace. Now that’s fishing made complete!
Keith Fly presents a short, creepy, and totally rad film on ice fishing
Why limit your Minecraft fishing adventures to non-arctic conditions? Enjoy some snow and ice with this unique fishing expedition video. Just watch out for the creeper!
Go Dog Sledding
According to the makers of this short video, “Me and my bud were messing around in my Minecraft house when out of boredom [we] laid some tracks down in a big square and got my dogs stuck to the carts.” What more incentive could there possibly be? The dogs don’t even bark and no food is required.
Build a Log Cabin
FanctBluPants builds a log cabin that will blow you away
This is a pretty quick and simple guide to build a charming rustic log cabin home. Actually, the producer of the tutorial refers to it as a “cute little cozy house” that is “like a breath of fresh air.” The end result includes a quality shelter with oak and spruce woods, cobblestone stairs, glass panes and even double doors. Creating a comfortable Alaska log home from the comfort of your couch? Now, that’s comfort!
Trap some Game
TheDiamondMinecraft traps Prince the piggy
We’re not sure if this will help you trap that next big moose or stealth-like fox, but you can certainly use these traps to send an irritating pig down a hole. The creative traps combine spikes, fake grass/sand coverings, invisible pressure plates and grass camouflage pressure plates. Happy hunting!
Build a Seaplane

Nothing says Alaska like a trusty seaplane ready for take-off. But save your frequent flyer miles and build your own aircraft. The final plane is not only great, but it’s “fabulous.”
Construct a Cruise Ship

After booking your own ticket for a cruise along Alaska’s Inside Passage, try constructing your own seaworthy cruise ship. Get a tour of the Prestige Sur La Mer for inspirations on how to make your vessel shine (and hopefully float). This beauty of a ship boasts: stunning views from every deck, swimming pools, an ice skating ring, a night club, 90 furnished rooms, a mini-golf course, and even a soccer field.
If your mad Minecraft skills are not even challenged with the above, then how about constructing an entire Alaska village? This guide combines “oil-rich industrial Alaska with the cold, snowy environment and the old wooden, fishing villages, native to Alaska’s people.” Make sure to send us some pictures!
If you’re looking to experience a sense of Alaska adventure, but just can’t make it off your couch or out of your home, no problem. Get your Minecraft game on and start constructing your next structure/event with some Alaska flare. Just be careful of the sheep and pigs!
