Holgate Glacier is located in the U.S. state of Alaska, in Kenai Fjords National Park, on the northern rim of the Gulf of Alaska. It lies to the SW of Seward, the nearest cruise ship port. The glacier flows outward from the Harding Icefield toward Holgate Arm off Aialik Bay. (An icefield is a large body of glacial ice astride a mountain.) The 780 sq.km. Harding Icefield originates in the Kenai Mountains, receives 18m of snowfall annually, and spawns around 40 glaciers. It is the largest ice field contained wholly within the United States. Tour boats from Seward, about 80km by sea to the NE, offer tourists the opportunity to view the glacier.

Holgate Glacier is described as a mountain/valley glacier due to its origin. It is also described as a tidewater glacier, that is, it terminates in the sea. As the ice reaches the sea, pieces break off (calve) forming icebergs. Though Holgate Glacier is one of the smaller glaciers, it is popular with tourists looking to see the advancing glacier calve icebergs off its 700 m face. The blue colour of the glacier results from its air-free compressed ice, and the preferential absorbing of colours other than blue by the ice water.

Kenai Fjords National Park protects the ice field and glaciers, and the narrow strip of forested land between mountains and sea in the deeply indented coastline. It is inhabited by a variety of terrestrial and marine mammals, including brown and black bears, moose, sea otters, harbor seals, humpback and killer whales, to name just a few, plus numerous bird species.
