Survival in The Highlands with Bear Grylls Survival Academy
Bear Grylls is the ultimate survivor as demonstrated on his hit TV shows including 'Man vs. Wild', 'Escape from Hell' and more recently, Channel 4's 'The Island'. Test your mettle on the extreme five day survival skills course in the Scottish Highlands, delivered by highly trained instructors, hand-picked by Bear and his team of experts. Learn survival techniques such as navigation, ascending cliff faces, self-defence, fire lighting, stalking prey, purifying water and the practical use of snares, traps and drop out fishing lines. Build an emergency shelter, cook some exciting wilderness food, undertake a night navigation exercise and learn how to cross rivers and ravines safely. Finish with a zip line across a 200ft high gorge, where the team will be rescued by an all-terrain, eight-wheel drive Argo!
