The Salmon Glacier is a must to see glacier if you a visiting Alaska and Canada. We stayed in Steward, British Columbia and drove though Hyder Alaska to the Salmon glacier which is in British Columbia, Canada.
The Salmon Glacier is a glacier located ~25 km (16 mi) north of Stewart, British Columbia, and Hyder, Alaska, just on the Canadian side of the border. The glacier, one of hundreds in the Boundary Ranges, is notable for its major potential as a natural hazard. Summit Lake is located at the northern end of the glacier and every year around mid-July the lake breaks an ice-dam and then flows under the Salmon Glacier into the Salmon River. This causes the river to rise approximately 4–5 ft (1.2–1.5 m) for several days.
The glacier can be accessed by road from Hyder, Alaska, from early July to late September.
