Bear para-glides into the Montana Rockies. After risking his life climbing down a water fall on a rotten old log and rope ladder that is a bit too short he tries to cross a lake on a holey canoe using a make shift kite and manages to make it part way. Surviving these exploits he finds an unstable rock wall to climb, a collapsing mine to explore and a chasm to jump over. Then it gets really dangerous before getting absolutely crazy.
Survival takes a look behind the scenes and introduces the experts that keep Bear alive and make the show possible. In conjunction with clips of past highlights the crew explains the challenges and surprises they encountered.
In the North African Sahara, Bear gets creative finding water. He treks to the coast, catches an octopus, makes shelter with acacia trees, and eats a stomach-turning bug burger breakfast of locusts and moths.
Bear gets dropped off shore in the shark infested waters of a deserted island new Papua New Guinea and wisely swims for shore. But he doesn't have the sense to stay on land and instead crosses a sand reef to another island and enjoys an all too close encounter. But that doesn't stop him from trying to catch a shark bare handed. Then Bear attempts another ill considered crossing to another island on one of his suspect rafts.
Bear and his team are in Norway. Armed with the latest technology they'll be creating the harshest conditions possible while sensors monitor how Bear copes trying to survive in one of the world's most beautiful but wettest countries.
