Our Story

Viking Travel was founded in 1981 by Dave and Nancy Berg. Predominately started as an air ticket and Alaska ferry business, Viking Travel has grown and expanded its services over the years. Even with the development of the internet and online travel booking tools, they saw a need for customizing Alaska travel for independent tourists. The Bergs spent four decades along with their trusted Viking Travel staff, planning journeys for thousands of people, and at the beginning of 2023 they sold the business to James and Madeleine Valentine. To this day Viking Travel still issues airline and ferry tickets as well as creating custom Alaska vacation packages, booking cruises, vehicle shipping, international travel, planning local cruise ship logistics, and much more. Viking Travel always has and always will be a business that provides personal, friendly service to customers new and old. We pride ourselves on our ability to help people and take the stress out of travel planning whether it be personal, business, medical, or group travel.

Community Information

Our office is located in Petersburg, Alaska, a fishing town nestled in the heart of Southeast Alaska. Our Norwegian and Tlingit heritage combine to make this a thriving, culturally vibrant community, with the self-sufficiency and isolation characteristic of many Alaskan communities.

Petersburg celebrates its Norwegian heritage with the annual Little Norway festival every third weekend of May, in honor of Norwegian Constitution Day. The festival features traditional dancing and music, a parade, and even a marauding crew of Vikings and Valkyries. Petersburg is also home to excellent fishing and whale watching grounds as well as the jumping off point for visiting LeConte Glacier, North America’s southernmost tidewater glacier.
