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.
