A Guide to Hubbard Glacier, Alaska

Other Alaska Glaciers

Hubbard Glacier calving

Hubbard is the largest tidewater glacier in Alaska, 76 miles long and 25% larger than the state of Rhode Island. It flows from Mount Logan, the highest mountain in Canada. Due to both its size, and its very active calving (dropping chunks of ice into the sea), it is a very popular destination for cruise ships.

Some scientists say that Hubbard Glacier may dam Russell Fiord this year (2008) - if that happens, ships may not be able to get within several miles of it. Click here for more information from the Alaska Science Institute.
