Bethel is a special place...a growing community located in the heart of the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta with a bright spirit born of a culture rich in tradition. The spirit of Bethel can be felt among its citizens, at its local events, and in the natural beauty of the river and the tundra.
Bethel is located in southwestern Alaska, 40 miles from the mouth of the Kuskokwim river, 400 air miles west of Anchorage. Flight time by jet from Anchorage to Bethel is one hour, and there are many daily flights. It is located in the Yukon Delta National Wildlife refuge, the second largest refuge in the United States.
