Petersburg & the Wrangell Narrows

Sep 08, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Lion


Welcome to Petersburg, Alaska, a small fishing town with Norwegian roots where we stopped for a morning of hiking, flight seeing, and exploring town. Our visit to Petersburg is an opportunity to experience Southeast Alaskan culture in a place where fishermen walk along the very same dock where we step off the National Geographic Sea Lion. The photo team led a walk around town, working on capturing images that showcase aspects of Petersburg’s interesting and quirky character.
