"And that's what our friend Hero the salmon thought us. Keep trying, no matter how hard it gets. It's the lesson we've learned on Hero's journey."

"Wild Kratts Alaska Hero's Journey" is the twelfth episode of Season Five of the PBS Kids show Wild Kratts. It is the one hundred thirtieth episode of the series overall, and it premiered on July 24, 2017. This episode is part of the fifth-season premiere.


Aviva announces she's one step closer to fixing the Time Trampoline with the invention of a Time Thruster. But before they can check it out, it goes overboard and attaches onto a Sockeye Salmon who is in the middle of the "Salmon Run". The Wild Kratt team is led on a wild chase, as they follow the salmon on this incredible and difficult journey - both battling the odds to reach their goals.

  • When Aviva surprised Koki with her Wolf Power Suit, she called her "Little Girl Who Cried Wolf".


  • The salmon with the Time Thruster was a male, but when Aviva spots it with Wolf Powers, it was a female.
  • This episode marks the appearance of the Bald Eagle Power Suit. However, the debut episode of the creature power suit, The Fourth Bald Eagle would air in January 21st, 2019, 2 years later. This would imply either the episodes are out of order, or The Fourth Bald Eagle serves as a prequel to Alaska: Hero's Journey.
