Bear Grylls Survival Academy

‘Never Give Up’

May 2021

Following the success of Bear’s TV shows, ‘Man vs Wild’ & ‘Running Wild’, adventurers can now test themselves in the extreme Highlands of Scotland. This five-day intense survival course follows the same format of the TV shows. “Survive the Highlands” begins with a crash three-day course in Bears survival techniques and finishes with a 30-hour survival mountain journey. You will be pushed to the limit crossing difficult terrain in order to make your way back to civilisation. Do you have what it takes to complete the challenge?!
