Welcome to the Bethel Alaska Chamber of Commerce Website
Bethel (Mamterilleq in Central Alaskan Yup'ik) is a city located near the west coast of the U.S. state of Alaska, 400 miles west of Anchorage. Accessible only by air and river, Bethel is the main port on the Kuskokwim River and is an administrative and transportation hub for the 56 villages in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta.
Bethel is the largest community in western Alaska as well as the 9th largest in the state, with a population estimated to be 6,500 in 2010.
Summer in the Delta starts out with logging, then moves to fishing, berry picking, camping, gardening, and long daylight hours to accomplish all those outdoor activities we've waited all winter for! Enjoy every minute because it does go quickly!
