With little more than the clothes on his back, survival expert Bear Grylls goes toe-to-toe with some of Earth's toughest, most remote environments in each edge-of-your-seat episode of MAN VS. WILD. Grylls faces sweltering desert temperatures, icy, raging rivers and hungry predators as he fights for survival using techniques he learned as a British Special Forces soldier. You'll never look at the great outdoors the same way again!
The Rockies: In this episode, Grylls encounters a grizzly bear, jumps off a 70-foot cliff and floats nearly 12 miles in treacherous and freezing white water, all on a diet of rattlesnake, raw fish and worms.
European Alps: Armed with just a knife, water bottle, cup and a flint to make fire, Grylls parachutes into this mountain range. From a radical new technique that could help save lives in crevasse zones, to building a snow shelter to survive alpine storms, to demonstrating how to escape from a fall into a frozen lake, Grylls puts his skills to the test.
Costa Rican Rainforest: Grylls's challenge is to make his way to civilization from within the Costa Rican rainforest with just a knife and a water bottle. His journey takes him up 100-foot trees and down pounding waterfalls, through secondary jungle and mangrove swamps to the sea.
Moab Desert: On this incredible journey back to civilization, Grylls travels down a maze of narrow canyons, encounters rattlesnakes and escapes quicksand.
Sierra Nevada: This time carrying only a water bottle and cup, Grylls shows us how to survive in the Sierra's breathtaking yet deceptively dangerous three major mountainous regions.
Alaskan Mountain Range Join Grylls in this challenge as he scales the icy peaks of the Chugach Mountains, Alaska, one of the toughest environments on the planet.
Mount Kilauea: Made up of a bleak expanse of solidified lava which stretches for 33,000 acres, this environment is one of the world's most inhospitable. One tourist a week is rescued from its lava fields. Grylls deliberately puts himself in the position of one of those lost tourists, putting his survival skills to the ultimate test.
Desert Island: Grylls eats sea urchins and fish eyes, encounters razor-sharp coral reefs, rip currents, and relentless surf and comes face to face with sharks.
African Savannah: Grylls demonstrates how to find water, build shelter, use natural medicines and prevent elephant and rhino attacks. In his journey to safety, Grylls eats the meat from a lion-kill in this thrilling episode.
