President Obama to Trek Through Alaskan Wilderness with Bear Grylls

Posted on

After (almost) surviving the presidency, Barack Obama will next tackle the Alaskan wilderness.

On day two of his historic three-day trip to the Arctic, President Obama will trek through Alaska’s great outdoors with Bear Grylls for an upcoming episode of the expert adventurer’s reality show, Running Wild, NBC and the White House announced Monday.

Obama will put his survival skills to the test while also surveying the impact of climate change on the state.

The special edition episode will air later this year, according to a press release from NBC.

Obama kicks off his tour of Alaska on Monday evening, making him the first sitting U.S. president to visit the Arctic. Up first on his agenda is a roundtable with Alaska Natives, followed by the Arctic summit, where he will speak about climate change.
