LeConte and Petersburg

Sep 03, 2019 - National Geographic Venture

We started the day in the company of almost impossibly blue icebergs, exploring by Zodiac. Replenished with a delicious brunch, we were ready for an afternoon of activity in Petersburg. This charming fishing village with a Norwegian flavor provided opportunities for guided hikes through muskeg and forest, dock walks in harbors full of well-cared-for fishing boats, and even some exploration of the underwater world by ROV. Getting into the friendly small-town mode, some strolled the main street, browsing stores and chatting with locals.
