Season 3

Adventurer Bear Grylls uses his military training and daring spirit to demonstrate survival skills in extreme terrain and weather conditions in a third season of Ultimate Survival.

His travels this season take him through the Baja Peninsula located in the desert of Mexico, Louisiana's hurricane-ravaged swamps, sea cliffs on the west coast of Ireland, the Black Hills, the Great Plains and the inhospitable Badlands of South Dakota.

Throughout his adventures Bear braves alligator-infested swamps, scales thousand-foot high mountains and scavenges for raw insects, rodents and deadly snakes.

He is accompanied by his camera crew, who risk their lives to capture every moment of his exploits on camera.
