Next week A&E premieres a new series Great Wild North, capturing life in the icy tundras of the Yukon / Alaska.
In the frozen wilderness that borders Alaska and the Yukon, a group of brave souls pursue an ancient and dangerous way of life. For these men, women and their families, winter trapping is not only a deep passion–it’s their job. And they risk their lives to do it. In temperatures that reach 40 below – where skin freezes, snowmobiles break down, daylight fades fast, thin ice looms and predators are a constant threat – one wrong move can cost you everything.
Wednesdays from May 25 at 8.30pm on A&E.
