The City of Petersburg is located on Mitkof Island in the heart of the Tongass National Forest. It is a small fishing town with a population of approximate 3500 people. Unlike other Inside Passage communities, Petersburg is off the route of the large cruise ships and tourists are few. Petersburg is serviced by daily Alaska airline flights as well as the Alaska Ferry System.

Founded by Norwegian immigrants in 1890, Petersburg is a hard-working town known for its commercial fishing fleet and Norwegian heritage. Local waters produce millions of pounds of salmon, halibut, shrimp and crab. By the way, locally- harvested seafood is featured if you choose to dine at Waterfront. In fact, you may catch your own dinner!

A walk through town will reveal signs of Petersburg's Norwegian past. Many buildings are adorned with traditional designs and the historic Sons of Norway Hall is still an important part of our town's social life. Petersburg is a marvelous community where residents may spot you and ask with a smile “where are you from”.
