Bethel is a city in Alaska. It is the main hub for many of the surrounding native villages and the main port of the Kuskokwim River in the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta.
Bethel is home to a noted mid-distance dogsled race, the Kuskokwim 300. Held every January since 1980, the race commemorates an early mail route that once tied the settlement to the outside world. Top mushers and hundreds of sled dogs participate in the race for a purse of $100,000, the largest offered by any 300-mile (480 km) sled dog race. Local recreational activities include snowmachineing, skiing, bicycling, kayaking, caribou hunting, and salmon fishing.
To get in take a flight to Bethel on Era Aviation or on Alaska Airlines from Anchorage. Alaska Airlines has great connections from the pacific northwest destinations.
Try dog-mushing in the winter, or salmon fishing in the summer
