I would like to go to the little Norway festival this weekend, but there doesn’t seem to be any flights available. Are the anyother ways to get there that won’t take more than a few hrs?

Leaving anchorage

Um...get there from where? Access is by air or vessel. Did you check the Alaska Marine Highway ferry schedule?

Did you check Island Air for flights? Been using these guys for years and they just started service to Petersburg from Juneau.

The ferry takes something like eight hours from Ketchikan or Sitka. Not sure how long from Juneau, probably more.

Thanks, I’ll have the plan for next year, buying tickets on short notice, even for in state, is too hi, especially when it’s for two

Leave at 11, be there by 2:30. That's a pretty good connection into a small Alaskan town several hundred miles from Anchorage. Like you say though, gotta plan in advance to guarantee seats and a good fare.

I got tickets for 2019!


Anyone recommend a inexpensive place to stay? Things to see when we are there? This is our first trip to one of these.

Raven's Roost Cabin if you can get it and if you're in good enough shape for the hike in and out.

You might try contact the Petersburg Chamber Of Commerce and see if they have any ideas on housing. Given the few number of hotels I am guessing they have other housing options for the festival. You might also see if anyone you work with or know has relatives or friends in Petersburg that might let you couch surf.

We usually book our guys here: Scanida House Hotel, Petersburg Alaska when they go down for work.

I found a great little house on www.airbnb.com and it was inexpensive! Can't wait to check out the little Norway days!
