Les treks up through the thick mountain rainforest to survive on the peak of Grenada's largest active mountain, Mt. St. Catherine. Boasting its original rainforest ecosystem, the high-altitude area earned the name "Cloud Forest" for its cloud-enshrouded peaks. Mona Monkeys, tarantulas, scorpions, armadillo, iguana, parrots and possums all live in this vibrant ecosystem, offering an abundance of food for Les if he can catch it. Les must use his years of survival knowledge to avoid the many poisonous plants and trees indigenous to the island – all while carrying more than 50 pounds of camera gear on his back.

Les Stroud travels to the Mitre Peninsula, a remote peninsula located on the easternmost tip of Isla Grande in the province of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. This part of Patagonia is known as being particularly unforgiving and inaccessible due to the ever-changing weather, the absence of roads or paths and a combination of cliffs, peat bogs, forest and valleys. For 10,000 years, the indigenous people of Tierra del Fuego lived on the land. After the appearance of white men, the indigenous population was wiped out in a matter of 200 years. Despite efforts to settle in the peninsula that included seal fur factories, gold mining, logging and cattle ranching, no venture has ever endured the harsh environment. Les will be dropped into this inhospitable landscape and left to survive with no food, no shelter, no water, and no safety gear or camera crew.

After all his years of wilderness survival around the globe, the forests of Ontario's Temagami still rank as some of the most difficult, harrowing and challenging survival experiences Les has ever faced. Breathtakingly beautiful, Temagami's old growth pine forests and refreshing blue lakes, bountiful with fish and wildlife, are sure to test Les's survival skills yet again. Les returns to the oldest mountain ranges in North America to survive for ten days with no food, no water, no shelter, no safety and no camera crew. He survives eating wild edibles, hunting for food, making a fire and building a shelter. Key challenges are the incessant sting of blackflies, deerflies and mosquitos, as well as staying ever vigilant for moose, wolves, and other territorial wildlife.
