Ultimate Survival Alaska focuses on eight survivalist men who are dropped off in the Alaskan wilderness where they compete with each other in a 3,000-mile race.[3]

Ultimate Survival Season two focuses on four teams of survivalists from different areas of expertise. The teams are woodsmen, mountaineers, military veterans, and endurance athletes. They have a task of reaching an extraction point faster than the other teams. There are multiple drop off and extraction points with different terrain for each leg of the contest. .[3]

Premise[edit]

Eight survivalist men are dropped off by plane in the Alaskan wilderness where they compete in a 3,000-mile race through Alaska's unpredictable weather, barren landscapes, and hostile predators.[3][4] Each episode in the series documents the survivalists' experiences at a specific location point of their 3,000-mile race.[5] The main goal for the survivalists in each episode is to survive with very little gear they have and to reach a certain destination point in 72 hours.[6]
