About Ultimate Survival Alaska

Four teams. 2,000 miles. The ultimate wilderness. Ultimate Survival Alaska is back for a second season. Go off the grid with 12 survival experts on a 10-leg expedition in the brutal and dangerous Alaska terrain. The opponents' only goal is to make it out alive using just the gear they can carry in their packs. Dropped in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness by bush plane, they have 60 hours to make their way to the finish point for that leg of the expedition. Using raw, mountain-man ingenuity, they'll navigate through treacherous glaciated river valleys, barren ridgelines and high mountain peaks, battling hunger, hostile predators and perilous weather conditions along the way.
