s1e1: Canadian Boreal Forest
The Boreal forest of Northern Canada is a vast tract of wilderness stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific. It is home to moose and beaver, crisscrossed by rivers and lakes and frost-free for only about three months of the year. Les intentionally tips his canoe in mid-stream and crawls from the icy waters onto shore where he does a quick inventory of his supplies. A handful of cashews and beef jerky, a solitary match, a multi-tool and 50 lbs of camera equipment to document the next seven days in the bush.

s1e3: Costa Rica
A Costa Rican getaway - as far removed from everyday living as you can imagine: lush rainforests and deserted tropical beaches. Marooned on Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula, Les "Survivorman" Stroud has only a few items to aid him for the next 7 days: swimming goggles, 3 ballpoint pens, a multi-tool and the clothing on his back. On top of the keeping hydrated in the intense humidity and relentless heat, Les must cope with deadly snakes, enormous spiders, land-crabs and scorpions.
Wednesday, April 27th, 2005
s1e4: Georgian Swamp

s1e5: Canadian Arctic
Pond Inlet, on the Northern reaches of Baffin Island, provides one of the most challenging landscapes our planet has to offer. Over 700km north of the Arctic Circle, it sits amidst grinding, ever-shifting flows of sea-ice where polar-bears roam in search of meat. In this severe climate, Les has been equipped with a bare minimum of raw materials to aid him for the next 7 days - a hunk of uncooked seal-liver, some oil-rich blubber for heat, a seal-hook, three matches, and a knife.
Wednesday, May 11th, 2005
Les is airdropped onto a snow-covered peak in the Canadian Rockies courtesy of the Canadian Mountain Air Rescue Service. They'll come looking for him in seven days. Until then Les is entirely on his own, save for the grizzlies, cougars and wolves that also call this place home. To emulate a real-life survival scenario - in this case a heli-hiking expedition come to grief - Les has been provided with a few readily salvageable items, among them a broken camcorder and tripod. One man's trash is another man's treasure!
Wednesday, May 18th, 2005
The spectacular red landscapes of Utah's canyonlands are as beautiful as they are inhospitable. Like outlaws of old who were known to eat their own horses out of desperation in this forlorn place, Stroud will cannibalize the mountain-bike he has ridden into the middle of nowhere. As well as these scavenged bike parts to aid him, he also has a multi-tool, a magnesium flint-stick and an old energy-bar - that he has a use for other than eating.
Wednesday, May 25th, 2005
s1e8: Plane Crash
In the remote winter-bound forests of Northern Ontario, a crashed plane lies in the snow beside a frozen lake. There is no one alive on board.

For a week Les will have to survive in this harsh snowy wilderness with only an axe, a multi-tool and a single blanket to aid him.

s1e9: Lost at Sea
Living "off the land" takes on a new meaning as Les Stroud casts off for a week at sea.

Battling hunger, thirst and the Caribbean heat, he must also keep his cameras dry to film the ordeal. To top it off - the life raft has a few bad leaks and needs constant bailing. It also leaks air and requires frequent re-inflation with a hand pump - Survivorman is in for a busy few days!

Stranding himself on an uninhabited island called Frigate, Les is left to survive on his own.

Scouring the shoreline for edible marine life, Les must work to secure freshwater, build shelter and make fire. While being stranded on a Caribbean island may sound inviting, it is in reality incredibly difficult. Les is forced to eat prickly pear cactus, hunt for bird eggs and even contemplates trapping one of the thousands of turtles that occupy the island. When it comes to survival islands, the island of Frigate offers what all islands do: isolation…of your body, your mind and your spirit. Time away can be a good thing, but this is no vacation.

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.
