Llewellyn Glacier is one of the largest glaciers in British Columbia with a surface area of 458 km2.  It is an outlet glacier of the Juneau Icefield which straddles the Coast Mountains of northwest BC and southeast Alaska.  Llewellyn Glacier is within Atlin Provincial Park just southwest of the town of Atlin in northwest BC.  In recent decades Llewellyn Glacier has receded dramatically, and in 2011 this recession lead to what was termed the “Disappearance of a Glacial River”.
