Childs Glacier Calving Copper River Alaska USA

A massive piece of ice calving from Child's Glacier near Cordova, Alaska in the USA as it thunders into the Copper River.

The best time of the year to watch Child's Glacier near Cordova, Alaska in the USA calving into the Copper River is between May and September. While the glacier slowly moves forward, large chunks of ice break away and crash into the Copper River creating an amazing show.

The large pieces of ice, create an enormous sound and in turn massive waves will appear in the Copper River which have been known to send the salmon onto the beach. Glaciers, like Child's Glacier may calve at any given time and there is no such thing as a constant pattern. There are certain signs to watch for when visiting Child's Glacier which could mean calving is about to happen, but in reality there are no promises. Days could pass without any activity and on other days, the glacier could be on a continuous calving process.
