There's no place on earth like Alaska, and there's nothing like trying to live there. On each episode of Buying Alaska, we follow one home buyer as they check out three unique properties to find their ultimate Alaskan retreat. Offering much more than living quarters, these properties are so in tune with the extraordinary landscape that it's often what's beyond the house that proves to be the main attraction - from the ability to hunt and fish from a back deck, to extreme seclusion on your own private island, to self-sustaining features such as smokehouses and greenhouses. However, there are also dangers that come with all the beauty, and living in this rugged and remote terrain means being at risk of animal attacks and brutal winters that cut you off from society.

Buying Alaska proves that forgoing basic amenities is a reasonable trade-off when it comes to breathtaking views and stunning wild surroundings that you can't find anywhere in the lower 48 states. From the bare necessities, to actual bears, to breathtaking frontier vistas that make it all worthwhile, living in Alaska is a challenge unlike any other.
