Iron Isle is an island that first appears in Dragons: Race to the Edge. It is the only known home of the Armorwing.
|“||This looks like an ordinary island, but looks can be deceiving. This island is home to the fearsome Armorwing, a dragon that steals any metal it can find from unsuspecting travelers and fuses it to its hard shell. If you explore this island, make sure your keep a firm hand on your axe or sword.||”|

Armourwing Island is made up predominantly of rock stacks, and is covered in forestry, ranging from light shrubbery fringing the edges to denser greenery in the center. It lacks a sanded/stony beach, unlike the majority of the Islands in the Archaepelago and is instead made of of rocky providences that down to the water. The tree life consists chiefly of one kind of tree: this appears likely to be a kind of sycamore, although this is not confirmed. Small shrubs, bushes and grassland appear to make the base of the land growing on the rocks.
In "Snotlout Gets the Axe", after Snotlout is given the Jorgenson Ceremonial Axe by his father to chop down a tree at a union between House Jorgenson and House Hofferson, he loses it while flying due to his ego and it lands on Iron Isle. Snotlout, Hiccup, and Astrid go down to retrieve it, only to find that it is stuck to the back of an Armorwing. After failing to remove it, Snotlout comes up with a plan to go to Breakneck Bog to lure some Smothering Smokebreaths to Iron Isle, so that they can remove the axe from the Armorwing's back. The plan works at first, but then the teens realize that they're hurting the Armorwing, as it uses the metal for armor. Armorwings no scales on the parts of their bodies that have the metal. Snotlout attempts to steal the axe back from the Smothering Smokebreaths, but barely succeeds. The teens then lure the Smothering Smokebreaths away from the Armorwing with a ball of metal they welded together, and the Smothering Smokebreaths were led back to Breakneck Bog. The Armorwing lies on the ground defeated, with his metal armor mostly gone. Suddenly, Toothless and Stormfly bring the Armorwing more metal, and the Armorwing thankfully begins to weld it to itself. Hiccup then decides to leave, just in case the Armorwing is still angry, and to make the ceremony in time.
In the episode, "Mi Amore Wing", the Dragon Riders revisit Iron Isle to drop off some scrap metal the resident Armorwing might like. While there, Hiccup notices the Armorwing has a Dragon Eye lens stuck to its armor. The Dragon Flyers have also followed the Riders to the island to see what they are doing there. A battle ensues between the Flyers, Riders, and the Armorwing.
