There are several seeds in Minecraft where you will encounter lava. When inside the Nether, you can craft a Warped Fungus on a Stick by combining a Warped Fungus and a Fishing Rod to lure a Strider and mount it using a saddle.

However, one alternative method will work in any location with lava, even ones without Striders. To walk on lava in Minecraft, you can use the Lava Walker Enchantment, which requires the installation of an external data pack.
