Les Stroud strands himself in the Norwegian mountains to survive for 10 days taking little food, no water or gear, and no safety or camera crew. Does Les stay with his marooned car or push on to find help? Hauling 65 pounds of camera gear, Les makes do with what he has, builds crude shelter, eats what he finds, and proves it takes true will to survive.
Being stranded in the Norwegian mountains will prove to be the most difficult survival expedition of Les Stroud's 20-year career. With no food or water, no safety or camera crew, Les must haul 65 pounds of camera gear down the slick wet mountainside in the hope of finding shelter. Scavenging what he can from the barren landscape, exhausted and starving, Les draws on his years of experience and the will to survive in order to make it the full 10 days.
Les Stroud is shipwrecked on the desert island of Tiburon. Part of the Sonoran desert, Tiburon is searing hot in the day and freezing cold at night. The coastline is a barren stretch with no source of fresh water. Les must distill seawater and scavenge for clams and oysters amongst the rocks and mud to survive. With the threat of stingrays in the shallow waters and coyotes hunting the shoreline, Les battles hunger, fatigue and loneliness in this 10-day survival ordeal.
After five days of surviving on Tiburon's shore, Les Stroud treks inland in search of food, water and shelter. In the mountainous desert landscape, Les must avoid packs of wild coyotes, scorpions and rattlesnakes. Alone and carrying heavy camera equipment, he is at risk of exposure and dehydration. Making fire to distill drinking water, he survives on clams and edible plants in this 10-day survival ordeal.
