Petersburg is an island community that continues to make a living from the sea. We have three beautiful harbors which attract the smaller cruise ships, private yachts and pleasure boats to town in the summer months. Leave the crowds behind, and take a trip to this thriving fishing village with a strong Norwegian heritage.
Petersburg is located on Frederick Sound near the summer feeding grounds of hundreds of humpback whales. The Stikine-LeConte Wilderness Area, with the spectacular LeConte Glacier calving off tons of bright blue icebergs, is just a short boat ride away.
Whether your interest is hiking in the Tongass National Forest, flightseeing over the glaciers, chartering a boat for whale watching or a glacier trip, birding, sports fishing or sightseeing, Petersburg has it!
