Experts agree there are some very basic and universal rules for surviving in the wild. Find shelter, find water, find food, find help. Beyond that, there's not much they agree on.

None know this better than Cody Lundin and Dave Canterbury who are back again taking on some of the planet's most unforgiving terrain to demonstrate, in their own way, how the right skills and some creative thinking can keep you alive.

Cody and Dave must use items they salvage from their life raft to find shelter, build a fire and find food and water when they arrive on a deserted island off the coast of Nova Scotia in the dead of winter -- showing what it takes to survive in a cold, wet wilderness.

Next, our survival experts take on a mountaineer's worst nightmare -- stranded on top of a mountain in New Zealand with limited supplies. Working together, they battle 8,000-foot glacial peaks, deadly crevasses and deep rocky canyons as they trek down the mountain guided by Dave's alpine experience.

Each year, an average of 20 people drown while cave diving. For this survival scenario, survival experts Cody and Dave are lost divers who are fortunate to find air, but they are deep inside a maze of caves in Belize. Equipped with only their dive gear -- mask, fins, wetsuit, buoyancy compensator and flashlights -- they must find their way out and to safety.

Cody and Dave head into Peru's infamous "Valley of the Volcanoes" to take on the ultimate lost-in-the-desert survival scenario -- a broken down car miles from civilization, in the middle of an almost barren lava-scorched landscape. They fight volcanic rock, heat exhaustion, altitude sickness, dehydration, rodents and a debilitating illness that literally brings Cody to his knees.

Dave and Cody tackle a lost hiker scenario in the sweltering jungles of Laos. They bushwhack their way through dense terrain and reach a wide river they believe is the way to help. But first they must make a homemade bamboo raft strong enough to get them through dangerous rapids.

Cody and Dave head to the heart of the Louisiana bayou to take on a potentially deadly scenario: lost in a 1,000 square mile labyrinth of water channels and bogs, home to 1.5 million alligators and six species of poisonous snakes -- including water moccasins.

Our survival duo take on a nightmarish scenario: stranded, miles apart, in Arizona. Their mission: trek through the tough terrain to find each other and then together make their way to civilization. Dave begins his journey at 8,000 feet above sea level in the Ponderosa Pine forest. Further south, Cody sets out in a totally different ecosystem: the high desert scrub country that he calls home.

For two boat wrecked hunters, surviving in the Pacific Northwest rain forest takes keen navigation skills and the know-how to avoid hypothermia and signal for rescue. Dave and Cody take on this nightmare scenario and show what it takes to survive.

In a hurricane's aftermath, Cody and Dave find their most valuable survival resources in the trash covering the beaches. But their journey to the Dominican Republic's coast is filled with creatures that sting, and Dave ignores Cody's advice about hunting the deadliest of them all.

Deep inside Brazil's Pantanal, the largest swamp wetland in the world, Cody and Dave wade through piranha-infested waters in search of civilization. Their best bet for rescue is a river but Cody's plan on how to travel on it could sink them both.
