Experience Eskimo Culture in Bethel, Alaska
During your time in Alaska, consider lodging at one of our bed and breakfasts in Bethel, situated at the mouth of the Kuskokwim River. Bethel is a small community nestled in the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge in the Southwest Region of Alaska. First settled by the Yup’ik Eskimo, the Alaskan Natives maintain over 60% of the local population. Plan your travel to coincide with one of the exciting recreational events that are planned in the area each year: Yukon-Kuskokwim State Fair, Kuskokwin-300 Sled Dog Race, Mink and Fox Festival and Yup'ik Eskimo dance festivals.
The Yukon Delta Wildlife Refuge, in which the town is located, is best known for its wide variety of waterfowl and migratory birds. The Refuge is also home to musk ox, caribou, brown and black bears, wolves, moose, and the hundreds of miles of rivers and streams that support 44 species of fish.
When you choose one of the Bed and Breakfast Association of Alaska ’s Bethel inns instead of area hotels, you will experience comfortable lodging and personalized service.
