Designed to inspire fathers and sons, mothers and daughters alike, this 24-hour outdoor adventure has been created by Bear Grylls and his close team of experts and is delivered by our hand-picked instructors on Jebel Jais. In parent and child teams, you’ll learn Bear’s famous survival techniques: how to build and light a fire, how to navigate at night, water purification, building a shelter, extreme weather survival and an abseil to test your nerve. You will be taught the most effective and safe ways to use a knife for survival. On day two, you’ll put these skills into action, following Bear’s ethos of self-rescue, by crossing difficult terrain back to civilization. It’s an opportunity to bring your family together through a truly memorable and fun experience.
