Things To Do

A bastion of protection for a variety of birds, the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge is a birdwatcher's paradise. Outfitted with binoculars and a field guide, visitors are given the chance to see a wealth of wings, including bald eagles, geese, swans, and a variety of other waterfowl. In addition to birds, large mammals, including the polar bear, can also be seen roaming the area.

The area near Bethel is vast and rugged, with few roads leading into its picturesque depths, so the best way to experience this raw Alaskan terrain is aboard a sightseeing charter plane. Arteries of rivers, vast expanses of tundra and grazing herds of musk oxen are all best seen from a window seat. If you can, consider taking a flight over the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge; here, the beauty of the region is concentrated in a single area.

One of the best places to view an Alaskan sunset, during the months when it does dip below the horizon, is along Bethel's Seawall. In addition to being a romantic spot to study the horizon for the infamous green flash, local anglers also find it a great spot for trying to reel in a variety of fish.
