Pretty as a picture... way more fun!

Petersburg from the Air

Petersburg is a town that still makes its living from the sea and is not a port of call for large cruise ships. Leave the crowds behind, and visit this thriving fishing village with a strong Norwegian heritage. Meet our hardworking and friendly people, and let us show you how to catch our abundant salmon and halibut, or show you some humpback whales!

Petersburg is located on Frederick Sound near the summer feeding grounds of hundreds of humpback whales. The Stikine-LeConte Wilderness Area, with its beautiful LeConte Glacier calving off tons of bright blue icebergs, is a short boat ride away.

Visit a place that still holds on to its small town roots. Step back in time for our Fourth of July celebration or take a mini-visit to Scandinavia for three days in May as we celebrate Norwegian Independence Day.
