TRYING TO GET AWAY? ALL NEW SEASON OF "BUYING ALASKA" RETURNS AUGUST 3 ON DESTINATION AMERICA

(Silver Spring, MD) - Alaska is world famous for its natural beauty, majestic landscapes and diverse wildlife, but what does it take to live there? Witness the challenge of purchasing a home that has no running water, electricity, plumbing or, in some cases, access roads, when the new season of BUYING ALASKA heads back to the last great American Frontier on Saturday, August 3 at 10pm E/P on Destination America. Only for the most adventurous of spirits, each episode follows a couple as they examine three different properties and look to buy a piece of the untamed north.

"BUYING ALASKA takes viewers along for the ride in search for a new home, but it's about more than the home -- it's about buying a way of life," said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. "Living in this dangerously beautiful land, isolated from society, can come at a price and for some, the payoff is priceless."

BUYING ALASKA proves that settling in the midst of the stunning wild is worth forgoing basic comforts. Offering much more than living quarters, these properties are so in tune with the extraordinary landscape that it's often what's beyond the actual house that proves to be the main attraction - from the ability to hunt from your backyard, to extreme seclusion , to whale watching in your own backyard. You can't find this lifestyle in the lower 48 states. BUYING ALASKA showcases some of the most stunning properties Alaska has to offer.

The line-up for the first four episodes of the new season is as follows:

Saturday, August 3 at 10 PM and 10:30PM (E/P)

· Snow Machines and Bear Attacks

Newlyweds Garret and Noelle Mischenko want a remote home in the Alaskan wilderness that's so off-the-grid, there's no road leading to it. In the winter, they'll have to travel by snow-machine! And the nearest general story is an hour away. With the wilderness comes bear attacks... which house is bear ready?

· Baby on Board

Matt and Jessica have a new baby and a dream of moving into a new home near the ocean around Juneau, Alaska. Waterfront homes are a bit too expensive so they choose a daring option - to live ON the water...in a liveaboard boat! This may be cheaper, but they discover life on a boat with an infant is not as easy as it is on land.

Saturday, August 10 at 10 PM and 10:30PM (E/P)

· Isolated Village

Sean and Jolene want a home in the isolated Alaskan village of Gustavus, where the wildlife runs rampant. It's so remote that bears can walk into your house! There are no roads in or out; the only way to reach the town is by ferry or by plane. One home the list has decorations made from moose bones hanging in every corner of the yard, while another features a rustic hot tub that seems like a luxury... until you see what's floating in the water.

· Ruff-ing It

Pete and Anja are dog mushers and want to buy an Alaskan home that's right for them and their 21 dogs. The first property they see, The Pond House, is tucked so far away in the wilderness that there's a guest house on an island of the pond in the yard but is there enough open area for the dogs?

BUYING ALASKA is produced by Paper Route Productions. For Paper Route, Alan LaGarde and is executive producer. For Destination America, Fay Yu is executive producer, Sara Kozak is SVP of production, Marc Etkind is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is group president.
