LeConte Bay and Petersburg

Aug 14, 2018 - National Geographic Quest


No one likes a Wednesday, unless you’re on a National Geographic vessel with Lindblad Expeditions. The morning began in LeConte Bay, with iceberg cruising and beautiful views, surrounded by photogenic fog and densely blue ice sculptures. In the afternoon, National Geographic Quest repositioned to the small fishing town of Petersburg, where a variety of hiking options allowed those who wanted to stretch their legs to see a remarkable temperate rainforest or muskeg bog. A stroll around the town itself will showcase special characteristics – it is quaint and full of history. This option captivated many onboard.
