Some Alaskans are providing accommodation and teaching time to give keen learners a chance to get a taste of what it is to truly survive. Sleep and hunt in below freezing temperatures, making sure you have enough wood to keep you going through the night to survive. It’s a vacation not for the faint of heart.
