The Last Alaskans is a reality television show on Animal Planet that documents the lives of several Alaskan families who live in the remote areas of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The families featured in the show are the last remaining people who are allowed to live in the area, as the government has restricted any new residents from settling in the Refuge.

The show first premiered in 2015, and the main stars of the show are Heimo Korth, his wife Edna Korth, and Bob Harte. Heimo and Edna Korth are a couple who have lived in the Alaskan wilderness for over 30 years, raising their family in this remote and isolated environment. Bob Harte is another long-time resident of the Refuge who has lived there for 40 years.

The Last Alaskans is a fascinating look into the lives of these individuals who have chosen to live off the grid and in harmony with nature. The show follows each family as they navigate their everyday lives in the harsh Alaskan environment: hunting and fishing for food, building and maintaining their homes, and contending with the extreme weather conditions.

One of the most impressive aspects of the show is the beautiful scenery that is captured on camera. The natural beauty of the Alaskan wilderness is breathtaking, and viewers are treated to stunning visuals of the snow-capped mountains, frozen tundra, and vast forests that make up this unique landscape.

Despite the stunning visuals, life in the wild can be incredibly challenging, and the families on The Last Alaskans must contend with a range of difficulties on a daily basis. One of the primary challenges they face is the isolation and loneliness that comes with living in such a remote area. The families featured on the show are often separated from other people for months at a time and must rely on their own skills, knowledge, and resources to survive.

The Last Alaskans also showcases the difficulties of living in a harsh environment that is subject to extreme weather conditions. Temperatures can drop well below zero during the winter months, making it difficult for residents to hunt and fish for food. The show documents how the families adapt to these conditions, using traditional methods and passed-down knowledge to survive in the wilderness.

Throughout the various seasons of the show, viewers are introduced to a range of different personalities and families who all share a love for the Alaskan wilderness. These families all bring unique perspectives and experiences to the table and viewers will quickly find themselves invested in their daily lives and struggles.

Overall, The Last Alaskans is a captivating and engaging reality television show that offers a glimpse into a way of life that is vastly different from what most people are used to. The show’s stunning visuals and relatable cast of characters make it a must-see for anyone interested in the natural world or those who simply enjoy an entertaining and educational show.

The Last Alaskans is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (41 episodes). The series first aired on May 25, 2015.
