Five Day Survive the Highlands with Bear Grylls Survival Academy
Test your mettle on an extreme five-day survival course in the Scottish Highlands, delivered by highly trained instructors, hand-picked by Bear Grylls. It starts with a three-day crash course in Bear’s survival techniques and finishes with a strenuous 30-hour mountain survival journey. Learn key survival skills, including fire lighting, emergency shelter building and skinning and gutting. Survival isn’t all you’ll learn. You’ll be taught crucial mountaineering skills that are one of Bear’s key priorities – self-rescue. This includes learning how to climb and descend mountainous terrain and how to cross extreme ground using specialist rope techniques. The Aim? Make it across the mountain range before summiting the highest mountain in Alladale and making it back down to solid ground. That’s not all, you’ll need to set up camp, forage, prepare and cook wild food, climb, raft, scrabble and rappel before a zip line across a 200ft high gorge, where you’ll be rescued by an all-terrain Argos.
