Arizona Sky Islands
In Arizona, Bear transforms into a one man high speed glider with a cutting edge wingsuit and flies into the Arizona Sky Islands. Bear shows viewers how to find water in the parched desert landscape, builds a sand-buggy from a wrecked aircraft and crosses heart-stopping rock drops.
In Scotland off the rugged coast of Cape Wrath, Bear is dropped into open ocean. After getting ashore, he realises he’s on an island and must swim to the mainland. Bear fashions a wetsuit from a seal’s hide to withstand the frigid crossing. Well into the trek, he is forced to turn back as an incoming estuary tide nearly cuts him off. After he makes it to dry land, Bear has a close call with the steep treacherous Scottish rock terrain.
Norway: Edge of Survival
Bear and his team are in Norway. Armed with the latest technology they’ll be creating the harshest conditions possible while sensors monitor how Bear copes trying to survive in one of the world’s most beautiful but wettest countries.
In Borneo, Bear heads directly into the wild jungles. Without a place to land his helicopter, he is forced to rappel into the treetops. As the heli peels away, Bear is 100 feet up in the canopy. After finding his way down to the jungle floor, Bear tackles raging waters, big mudslides and deep caves as he fights his way through this impenetrable place. He also eats a snake and builds a nest like Borneo’s famous orangutans.
Bear Grylls is dropped in an archipelago of islands off the coast of Borneo. Fighting dense jungle and scaling towering escarpments, Bear struggles to find freshwater. In his search for food, he tries to spear fish at depths of 30ft and traps a wild boar.
