AK – College Fjord

College Fjord was an incredible surprise – a small area packed with some spectacular views and a novel story of the Ivy league college names. (more on the story of the glacier names – and why there is no Princeton glacier)

Off Prince William Sound, College Fjord is two miles wide and was carved by the Harvard Glacier. This collection of hanging and tidewater glaciers have exposed granite faces and are surrounded by Sitka spruce. Take a look!

There’s so much more to study and learn from these glaciers, and with the retreat occurring, no one wants to see these colleges collapse! The boat trip to explore this fjord is a must-see for any glacier fan.
