No food, no shelter, no fresh water, no tools... no camera crew. One man - alone in the
wild for seven days with only his wits and stamina to sustain him.

Each episode finds filmmaker and survival expert Les Stroud abandoned in a remote location
with little more than the clothes on his back. The Costa Rican rainforest, Arctic ice-flows,
primordial Georgian swamp and the high Sonoran desert are just a few select locales.
Apart from rugged determination, camera equipment is the one thing he's not lacking. With his
unique filming-rigs and an abundance of black humor he documents his seven-day ordeal on
film as he struggles to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

It is easy to empathize with Stroud, who comes across an everyman and is constantly at the
mercy of the elements. Whether battling frostbite on the Arctic pack ice, or keeping his core temperature down to ward off heat stroke in the jungles of Central America, the climate is
always a challenge. Freezing nights in flimsy shelters are commonplace
 

Series 7 - Two in the Tropics

Les strands himself on a deserted island in the archipelago of Tonga with long-time friend Bob Wilson to relive the story of disappeared sailors Ian Thompson and Victorian Claus. Stories of wrecked sailboats and lost sailors are as old as sea faring itself.

Series 6 - Argentina

Les Stroud travels to the Mitre Peninsula, a remote peninsula located on the easternmost tip of Isla Grande in the province of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. This part of Patagonia is known as being particularly unforgiving and inaccessible due to the ever-changing weather, the absence of roads or paths and a combination of cliffs, peat bogs, forest and valleys.

Series 5 - Malayasia

Their entire lives lived in boats on the sea, Stroud will learn ocean survival from the Sea Gypsies (Bajau) of Malaysia. He will practice the dangerous art of compression diving, make shelter from braided palm leaves, and experience the struggle of hand-to-mouth existence when survival depends on bounty from the sea.
