The Bitcoin Network transaction will typically take 1 hour. The Bitcoin network will need to achieve 6 confirmations to complete.

The Avalanche Network transaction takes a few seconds.

Why is the Avalanche transaction part of the bridge taking so long?

This transaction only takes a few seconds, and if the Avalanche Bridge interface shows it taking longer, then check the transaction in the Explorer to see if it was successful. Users may need to add the token to the wallet on the Avalanche Network for it to appear.
