Want to learn the Bear Necessities of Life on the Bear Grylls Survival Course?

Do you have what it takes to face your very own Hero’s Journey? Well, you’re about to find out as this extreme Bear Grylls Survival Course will push you to your absolute limits and transform you into a rugged, bushwhacking, pathfinding adventurer! The former British SAS serviceman and Man vs Wild presenter is bringing his intense five-day survival course to the coyote-crowded, bear-infested and bobcat-beset Catskill Mountains. There, amongst upper New York State’s awe-inspiring craggy gorges, rocky cliffs and rapid white waters, you’ll meet your mentors; Bear’s hand-picked, elite fellowship of instructors, who’ll imbibe you with survival techniques and provide you with the supernatural weapon every hero needs - a Bear Grylls knife!

Push yourself to the absolute limit!

From the moment you step foot into the magical, green world of the Catskill Forest, you’ll learn knife skills, weather survival and rope work, plus how to build a shelter, forage for food and navigate by the sun and stars. But before you sleep under the starlight, your reward is dinner - after you’ve caught, gutted, skinned and cooked it on a fire you’ve just learnt to build! You’ll learn to ascend mountainous terrain and cross rivers via rappelling and Tyrolean traverses and then, for the final part of your mission, you’ll be dropped off in a remote mountainous area with only 36-hours to make your way through the dense forest back to civilization via a cascading waterfall! 

Bear Grylls Survival Course is an adrenaline-filled, fun-packed experience which will take you out of your comfort zone so you can return to the ordinary world with a profound new sense of confidence and self-worth! But be warned, this heroic trial ain’t for the faint of heart, for in their own words; “It may hurt a little!”


In short:

  • Travel to the beautiful, rugged Catskills Mountains
  • Learn how to survive in the wild for 5 days!
  • Become a new man (or woman) on the Bear Grylls Survival Course
