There is no Next Episode of Yukon River Run planned.
On Alaska's Yukon River, three raft crews each begin preparations for a trek downstream to sell goods to native villages. Each raft, made from wood collected from logs and timber, will serve as their home and, ultimately, profit for the next five weeks.
As three separate crews take on the Yukon River and begin their initial float downstream, they quickly learn the challenges of river life. The three rafts approach the first village of Rampart and must decide to barter or keep on floating.
All three crews have protein and cash on their minds; veteran rafter Neil takes his son hunting, but with no luck they resort to an old fishnet trick.
Six weeks into their journey, the remaining two rafts struggle to navigate the perilous Yukon River. With whipping winds and massive waves threatening to sink their rafts, both crews must pull over and regroup before attempting to reach the village of Koyukuk. Neil and Lauro set out on the journey to their winter cabin in the wilderness.
In the wilderness outside the village of Galena, Neil and Lauro take their dogsled team deep into the forest, trying to reach their winter cabin. But surviving in the snow-covered wild will take all of their skill and courage. Back on the Yukon, the other two crews reach the end of the line, and must do whatever it takes to sell their rafts and get off the river before the full force of winter destroys any chance for profit.
