    These are the 23 Biomes in Minecraft: Xbox One Edition
    You must travel through at least 17 of them for the achievement to pop. I have confirmed that it does count if you are on multiple maps, also you will find every biome in the tutorial level. If you need a picture of each area head over to

    1. River (Water only a few blocks deep and a short distance shore to shore)
    2. Frozen River (Same as above frozen over)
    3. Taiga (Area with only spruce treas and ferns, only spawns sheep)
    4. Taiga Mountain (Same as above on a mountain)
    5. Cold Taiga (Snowing Taiga)
    6. Cold Taiga Mountain (Mountain Snowing Taiga)
    7. Extreme Hills (cliffs)
    8. Plains (Vast open area with no trees, or very few treas or hills)
    9. Ice Plains (frozen over plains)
    10. Forest (mixture of many trees, but missing the vines of swamps and jungles)
    11. Swampland (short trees with vines and grey colored ground with mushrooms)
    12. Swampland Mountain (same as above on a mountain)
    13. Mushroom Island (Island with giant red and brown mushrooms)
    14. Mushroom Island Shore(Same as above but where the sand meets the water)
    15. Beach (Large area of sand that meets an ocean)
    16. Cold Beach (Same as above but with snow on it)
    17. Jungle (Large bright green trees and bushes covered in vines, coco beans grow on the trees)
    18. Jungle Mountain (same as above but on a mountain)
    19. Jungle Edge (This is questionable, but its where you will see the forest trees meet the jungle trees)
    20. Desert (Large open areas of sand that have cacti)
    21. Ocean (Very large and deep patches of water)
    22. Nether (Its the else do you describe it)
    23. The End (Where you fight the Ender dragon)

    I have also read on various sites that the Village, Cave, Ravine, and Deep Ocean are also Biomes. Since you only need 17, it is best to stick with the ones that are not duplicated (i.e. Jungle, Jungle Edge, Jungle M). Please let me know if any of these are wrong or extras need to be added.

    Thanks to r3volv3r789 who said, "If you're not able to figure out which biomes you are missing just go here and jump into the cave that is behind you after you start. These are the rare biomes: 90296315345015956."

    Memoriesofwe That seed location only has the rare biomes, not all of them. You will still need to wander the map to get the rest of the biomes. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

    DrMmmPie With the latest update there is now 40 biomes, so its a hell of a lot easier to get.

    MrMoo1985 I had this achievement unlock on my Xbox One, after loading up a battle mini game, and not through exploring the different biomes across multiple world maps
