Hyllglaciären (67°35'N, 17°29'E) is a small mountain side glacier situated at the southern side of the highest summit in the Akka massif. The glacier covers an area of 1.6 km2. Its maximum thickness is estimated to 140 metres and high frequency radar measurements indicate a subpolar thermal regime. The glacier was included in the front monitoring programme in 1964
