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.
Survivorman takes viewers on a variety of survival adventures in a range of wilderness locations, including Arctic, Boreal Forest, Arizona Desert, Costa Rica, Swamp, Mountain, Pacific Coast and Canyonlands.
In each adventure, Canadian wilderness survival expert Les Stroud is forced to brave the elements with a short list of supplies. Access to food is limited in the wilderness and Stroud often finds himself
eating a variety of unusual and unappetizing food to survive, from fire-roasted leech to road kill, turtle to tree grub.
Les not only needs to survive for a week without supplies, but he has to film everything himself, lugging over fifty pounds of camera gear the entire time.
The first three season aired on the Outdoor Life network in Canada before the series began airing on The Science Channel in the USA in 2012.
