Cruises to Hubbard Glacier let you to take in one of North America’s largest. At a full 76 miles long and six miles wide, Hubbard Glacier — known as a surge glacier or “galloping glacier” — is definitely still galloping. (What we’re saying is that it’s actually growing in size.) You’ll view the glacier from the waters of Disenchantment Bay… but don’t read too much into the name! Snowcapped mountains in the distance offer a spectacular backdrop to viewings of this immense glacier — take it all in from the open decks of the ship, or even enjoy it from your personal balcony. You may even catch wildlife sightings (orcas, humpback whales, bald eagles, anyone?) in the surrounding areas — bonus!
