Survival in the Highlands 3 Day Course
Since launching The Bear Grylls Survival Academy intensive 6 Day survival skills course in the Scottish Highlands, we have seen demand for a shorter, condensed version. The shorter 3 Day Courses will draw on many elements of the 6 Day Course and will suit candidates that are time poor!
The course is still delivered by the same range of instructors from the Man v Wild/Born Survivor crew. Once again, Bear himself may make an appearance for this course, although this is dependent on his schedule and commitments at the time and cannot be guaranteed.
This 3 Day Course is strictly limited to just 10 participants and costs £1,399 (approx U$2,252) excluding flights and transfers. All meals and accommodation are included. On completion of the course you will receive the coveted Bear Grylls Survival Academy badge and certificate, and your very own Bear Grylls Ultimate knife.
This overview of an average Highlands itinerary provides an insight into what you can expect from Bear Grylls Survival Academy. However, every course is different depending on the location, so this is just a guide!
The adventure begins at 5pm with a chance to meet your course leaders and fellow enrollees, and to ensure you have all the items on the Kit List. We’ll then move on to equipment and rations issue, before heading off to the Academy’s wilderness base camp.
Day One includes PT, the Priorities of Survival and a training and practical on knots, rope usage and river crossing. The day continues with navigation training and fire lighting, followed by an inspiring campfire survival lecture.
Day Two includes remote and improvised First Aid, followed by the practical use of snares and traps. Then later, you’ll build your own emergency shelter, prepare and cook some exciting wilderness food and undertake a night navigation exercise.
Day Three you’ll learn how to dynamically and safely ascend and descend cliff faces using a variety of techniques. You’ll also be tasked with wild food foraging. Then we explore the art of sourcing and purifying water.
Please note – all activities are weather dependent.
