Petersburg

Aug 28, 2017 - National Geographic Quest


A beautiful morning was spent cruising around grounded icebergs calved off of Le Conte glacier.  Seals were sighted and some of us even witnessed an iceberg split and roll.  We were fortunate and the good weather stayed with us through the day as we cruised towards the small Norwegian fishing town of Petersburg.  With many options in Petersburg guests were able to walk through the muskeg bogs or along the docks of the active fishing harbor, and some experienced flying over Le Conte Glacier nearby.  The picturesque town was a great way to experience living in Alaska.
