Beyond Boundaries Alaska

Beyond Boundaries Alaska

Warm Springs Bay, Alaska is home to the Baranof Wilderness Lodge, where each week float planes arrive with a new group of excited adventurers ready to embark on a life-changing expedition of fishing, exploration, and excitement led by the lodge’s certified wilderness guide. For the visiting nature lovers this is a dream come true. For those who live and work here, however, each day is a struggle. Exploring the majesty of the Alaskan wilderness often comes at a price. Camping trips can instantly become a desperate fight for survival when the weather takes a sudden turn.

Bear sightings, while magical to some, can quickly turn into maulings. The nearest hospital is four hours away and accessible only by helicopter – weather permitting. Behind the breathtaking scenery, lie isolation, loneliness, competition, in-fighting, equipment failures, and repair costs that all threaten the success of the lodge. Every new episode of Beyond Boundaries: Alaska brings a new set of adventure-seekers to this amazing wilderness lodge, each one with the potential to become a natural wonder – or a natural disaster!
