Prince Willam Sound

 

Description of Destination : prince_william_sound
 
PRINCE WILLIAM SOUND & COLLEGE FJORD:

Prince William Sound is the area where you'll find College Fjord. With its 3,000 miles of shoreline, Prince William Sound is one of the most scenic archipelagoes in the world. It also hosts the country's largest gathering of migratory birds.

This is the only place in Alaska where you are surrounded on all sides by tidewater glaciers. With the dramatic setting of this narrow fjord, sparkling blue glaciers flow to the sea. One after another, glaciers named Princeton, Yale, Bryn Mawr, and Vassar line up to starboard and port. At the head of the fjord lies Harvard Glacier; here you'll linger for an in-depth lesson on nature's power.

You'll be following the wake of an illustrious group funded by railroad magnate Edward H. Harriman that traveled here in the summer of 1899. This scientific expedition found the mother lode of Ice Age glory - the greatest density of tidewater glaciers in Alaska - and returned with over a hundred trunks of specimens and thousands of photographs and coloured illustrations.
