Survive the Moors Experience for One
Bear Grylls is the ultimate survivor, as proven on his popular TV shows 'Man vs. Wild', 'Running Wild' and 'The Island'. Test strength and courage on this extreme three-day survival skills course. You’ll gain a wealth of knowledge, starting with basics like how to make and light a fire from scratch, how to build emergency shelter, knife skills and tying survival knots. Some of the more technical skills include developing navigation skills and using Astro Navigation to complete a night exercise. You’ll need to eat, so foraging for wild food, grubs and insects is something you’ll need to pick up quickly. This survival course also includes a quarry day where you’ll learn hemp rope climbs, Tyrolean traverse and abseils. Endure the final training stage at Commando Gorge, where the Royal Marines carry out their gruelling exercises. The three days culminate with a 24-hour challenge where you must survive on the moor as a team. Who will have what it takes?
