Northwestern Glacier is located in Kenai Fjords National Park at the head of the Northwestern Fjord, a nearly 10-mile long, narrow, and steep inlet. This tidewater glacier is reachable only by boat, almost 70-mile boat tour from Seward, Alaska. It was named after Northwestern University, located in Illinois by Ulysses S. Grant (not the Army General and President) in 1909. The origin of Northwestern Glacier is the Harding Icefield, the same icefield that feeds the more well-known Exit Glacier in Seward, 30 miles away as the crow flies.
