      Glacier Island first appears in Dragons: Race to the Edge as part of the Barbaric Archipelago. It then appears in two Games: Rise of Berk and School of Dragons

Official Description

"Desolate and frostbitten, this glacier is far from lifeless. The heat-seeking Snow Wraith attacks trespassers like an avalanche to defend itself and its mysterious connection to the Dragon’s Eye. Led far away from Berk and far out of their comfort zone by clues hidden within the Dragon Eye, Hiccup, Toothless, and their teammates ventured to Glacier Island in search of the elusive, arctic dragon. However, the Dragon Riders were not the first Vikings to venture to this icy and extreme environment. Village elder Gothi was once part of an expedition into these frozen hinterlands years ago in search for pure glacier water, and barely survived the experience. The Snow Wraith is to winter what the Night Fury is to night. It senses the fall of each snowflake. It hears the glacial movement of every iceberg. It feels the slightest change in even the most frigid of temperatures. The Snow Wraith is the sole and uncontested denizen of its island. And when the chill wind roars, it might be the weather, or it might be the Snow Wraith descending upon its next victims."
―Hiccup's Map from Race to the Edge

Geography

In all versions of Glacier Island, it is cold, rocky, and covered with ice and snow. There is no plantlife. The ground underneath the snow has caves which the Snow Wraith utilize. The island is also prone to tremendous zero-visibility snow storms.

In School of Dragons there is Saltwater fishing spots the player can fish at. The games also shows thick ice spreading out onto the sea around the island.

Appearances

Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 1

Dragon Eye of the Beholder, Part 2

As told in "Dragon Eye of the Beholder, Part 2", many years ago, Gothi and two other Vikings ventured to the island seeking glacier water for healing purposes. However, they were ambushed by Gothi's Frostfright, a Snow Wraith. Only Gothi survived.

Three years after the Berserker War, Gothi then joined Hiccup and his riders in finding the Snow Wraith in order to get a tooth from it to unlock the Dragon Eye. They were successful as Gothi was able to get a tooth from the Snow Wraith that got lodged on her staff.

Snow Way Out

Later in "Snow Way Out", Heather, Ryker Grimborn, and his Dragon Hunters then went to the island to capture the Snow Wraith. However, they were stopped when Hiccup and his riders took the Snow Wraith pack to another island.

Games

School of Dragons

Glacier Island was one of several Islands that appeared with the release of the "Battle for the Edge" Expansion in December 2015. Players visited this island to complete an expansion-exclusive quest, which included healing a Snow Wraith with Prickleboggle breath.

Glacier Island is also mentioned in the Stable Quest "Infrared Detector". The player must send stabled dragons (non-active) to Glacier Island to save stranded Vikings. The quest takes 24 hours to complete and rewards are: 700 coins, 1296 Dragon XP, and 100 UTD (player points).
