|“||... They were all headed to the same bit of coast: A horseshoe-shaped inlet surrounded by tundra.||”|
|— Hiccup in "The Ice Castle"|
Though Balder Bay is mentioned only briefly, Hiccup gives a specific description of it. Presumably, the coastline around Balder Bay is extremely rocky and has many dangerous ice formations, such as the Ice Needles. It appears to be located within the Northlands, and according to Gobber the Belch, is the only "natural harbor" where ships could dock.
In Dragons: Titan Uprising, this cold and snowy place has been taken over and occupied by the nefarious Dragonroot Company. There are a large number of Dragon Hunter Ships as well as Viking longships anchored around the bay, floating amongst broken sheets of ice and rocky outcrops. Some of these outcrops have evergreen trees growing on them.
During the events of "The Ice Castle", Arngrim Dammen has stolen Stormfly and has taken her for breeding eggs to sell at auction. His dragon egg auction takes place near Balder Bay in the Northlands. Balder Bay is the only area people attending the auction can dock.
Baldr Bay is the eighth area of the Coldwind Wastes the player encounters while fighting the Dragonroot Company. This group of Dragon Hunters have occupied vast swathes of the Barbaric Archipelago and infected the local dragons with dragon root. The player must battle dragons such as Hideous Zipplebacks, Skrills, and Monstrous Nightmares.
