Your favourite Survivor Les Stroud is back for a thrilling third season! In each new episode, follow the film maker and renowned naturalist Les Stroud to a different remote location where he demonstrates primal methods of survival. Whether it be starting a fire with nothing but a flashlight filament, finding ‘all natural’ sources of food (think scorpions) or learning to drink water from rain-filled moss – Les has got you covered! Survivorman showcases Les’ ability to utilize resources the rest of the world would overlook – in one episode an old plywood box serves as a temporary shelter while Les uses steel wool and his CB Radio battery to make a fire! Each seven day journey documents a new adventure, while showcasing the beautiful natural landscapes the world has to offer.

In this season’s premiere episode see Les in his natural habitat – Sierra Nevada. Just because this is Les’ home turf, doesn’t mean he knows the land well… it’s pretty easy to get lost in the desert! Les was instructed to live like a “lost” hiker, but watch as he actually becomes one!

When in Mexico, they discover that there’s more to tequila than a good night out and in Korea they
