The Berg Glacier feeds into Berg lake, which is located on the Robson River and within Mount Robson Provincial Park in the Canadian Rockies. The lake and glacier are at the doorstep of the north face of Mount Robson (3,954m/12,972ft) which is the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.

Both glacier and lake can be accessed via the 19km Berg Lake Trail. Greater detail about the trail and how to get to Berg lake can be found here. For you Google Earthers, you can punch in the following coordinates to check out the Glacier: 53°07’00”N, 119°08’00”W (just scroll a bit north to see where it feeds into the lake).
