Our Story

Founded in 1981, Viking Travel started with a gravel floor and a public shower/spa in the other half of the building. A fire destroyed the building in 1993, and with support from the community of Petersburg, Viking Travel was up and running by the following morning. Being part of a community where everyone pitches in has helped formed us into the company we are today

We have always been a business that provides personal service to customers new and old alike. We pride ourselves on our ability to help people, whether it's finding a way to see a glacier, bring your furry friend along or make last-minute travel plans.
