Glacio is a Tundra Planet in Astroneer.

Glacio has a windswept thin atmosphere and icy mountains. The surface of the planet is full of many research items and research samples that can be researched for anywhere between 100 and 500 bytes each, making it one of the best planets to gather bytes. Hematite can be found all over the surface and often near the shuttle, making it much easier to harvest without the need of an Oxygenator. Ammonium and Graphite can also be found naturally, scattered across the cold surface, but at a much lesser rate than Hematite. Examples of Debris found on the surface are most commonly broken or working medium wind turbines, lessening the need to bring generators. Titanite can be found in large clusters underground along with Popcoral, which can kill in one puff if the player stands too close while breaking it. Glacio has lots of other Hazards.

Driving rovers around Glacio is fairly easy as the terrain is mostly flat. A drill and a paver may be required to traverse between different 'steps'.

AstroWiki Warning.svg Spoiler Warning: Information below contains information that may ruin your enjoyment of discovering the game's secrets for yourself. Proceed at your own risk.

Glacio has six Gateway Chambers, each requiring 26U/s of power for 30 seconds to be activated. At least one must be activated before the player can access the Gateway Engine in the core of the planet.

Once a Gateway Chamber has been activated, the Gateway Engine opens in the core. Placing a single Diamond in one of the slots reveals the Geometric Triptych. Placing the Geometric Triptych in the slot on the opposite side will activate the engine, revealing the Odd Stone and allowing teleportation to the core as well as revealing the inactive node for the Gateway Portal if it has not yet been discovered.
