Here's a taste:
Petersburg is located among forested islands and mountains of Alaska’s beautiful Inside Passage on the northern tip of Mitkof Island. It’s a small, vibrant town with about 3,100 permanent residents, located in the heart of the Tongass National Forest. We are an island community that continues to make a living from the sea. You’ll find artistic designs precast into the sidewalks and Rosemaling (Norwegian flower painting) on the fronts of retail stores and residences. The influence of local artists and craftspeople is seen in the murals, totems, and sculptures along downtown streets. Seek Alaska Tours is home to "Alaska's Little Norway", with 5 generations of experience and love of Petersburg.
