Half Day Survival Course, North Wales UK

A taster course in Bear Grylls’ extreme survival techniques

“Sometimes an ember is all we need.” ― Bear Grylls

Lucky adventurers from across the UK now have a rare chance to test their mettle in a half-day survival challenge. Based in the breathtaking Llyn Peninsula in North Wales, an area very close to Bear’s heart, our location is easily accessible for tourists, families, schools, clubs and team building groups looking to share a memorable, fun and adrenaline-fuelled experience over the course of three hours. From instructors handpicked by Bear Grylls and his team, you’ll learn Bear’s priorities of survival, and skills such as building a shelter, fire-making, and foraging for natural foods. After you have mastered these self-rescue techniques, you’ll be tested to the max with our custom obstacle course “Escape from Cabin Wood”, taking on the wild forest terrain, with twists and challenges around every corner.
