America’s natural wonder: Northern Alaska
Northern Alaska is more deserted and inaccessible than almost any other area on earth. In the mountains of the Brooks Range lies the Gates of the Arctic National Park. Only 1,000 visitors get lost here every year. For them, however, this national park is a paradise. Not only for nature lovers, but also for mountaineers, because the granite towers and steep walls of the Arrigetch Peaks are a challenge. ARD-alpha, 9 p.m.

And in the valley, at the beginning of each new year, there is a change from Christmas customs to the carnival season. The so-called Mullerlauf in Thaur, a kind of Perchtenlauf, is one of the prominent Tyrolean carnival customs every four to five years. ORF III, 21.05 Uhr
