Updated May 20th, 2021 by Mina Smith: Minecraft continues to grow and change as new updates, DLC, and other additions come out. This guide was in need of a few tweaks for clarity and changes. Hopefully, these new updates will help all Minecraft players to better tame polar bears in the game.
Minecraft Polar Bears
Polar bears are only located in the icy biomes of Minecraft. Players can find both adult and baby polar bears out in the wild, and they are both tamable. They travel in parties of one to four bears; the easiest way to tame one is to aim for single bears that don"t have a cub with them. Polar bears are pretty aggressive with a baby in tow, so players should be extra careful if trying to tame one of a group.

Polar bears can only be tamed by feeding them a selection of fish, so players will also have to catch some before even attempting to tame these white, ice-loving bears in their Minecraft world.
In order to tame a polar bear, players will need loads of fish. And to get fish in Minecraft, players will need a fishing rod. There are several ways to get one.
Each tool enchantment in Minecraft on fishing rods makes fishing faster by 5 seconds. Players want to fish while the weather is nice in water exposed to direct sun or moonlight. If fishing pole bobbers are not exposed to direct sun/moonlight, the time that players will wait between fish will be approximately doubled, and rain further reduces the speed. In order to get as many possible fish in a short period of time, players should fish with an enchanted rod, out in the sunlight while the weather is clear.

Polar bears have a preference for salmon, and this fish can be found just about anywhere. Salmon and other fish can also be used to tame cats and to bribe dolphins into leading players to special underwater places. If players don"t want to go through the trouble of fishing for salmon, they can kill polar bears to get raw salmon instead and use it to tame bears that are still alive.
Players should bring along several fish for each bear they wish to tame. Feed the polar bear the fish, and then keep doing so until hearts appear above their heads. It will take several fish for each bear, so make sure to have plenty on hand. Once the hearts pop up, the bear is tamed. Players can now use polar bears to attack, defend, and even ride. Polar bears are some of the best animals to tame in Minecraft for usefulness.
Minecraft is available now on Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
