Amalia Glacier, also known as Skua Glacier, is a tidewater glacier located in Bernardo O'Higgins National Park. It originates in the Southern Patagonian Ice Field and from 1945 to 1986 its terminus retreated 7 km, being, along with the receded of O'Higgins Glacier, the most drastic retreat of the glaciers of the mentioned icefield during that period.
The glacier partially surrounds Reclus volcano and erodes the northern flank of it.
