About Us

Since launching in November 2012, the Bear Grylls Survival Academy has expanded and developed beyond all recognition. From our humble beginnings on the outskirts of London we are now established on 5 continents in a variety of different environments from jungles to deserts to some of the most stunning mountain ranges imaginable.

This unforeseen success and expansion is without doubt down to the BGSA instructors being of the very highest quality and from a wide range of backgrounds. All of our lead instructors have worked personally with Bear on his TV shows including Mission Survive, Bear Grylls Survival School and Running Wild. The majority of our lead instructors are from a Military background from some of the elite forces around the world including the Royal Marine Commandos, the Parachute Regiment and the South African Special Forces and are truly expert adventurers in their own right.

After Dinner Speakers  Ultimate Team Building

Each of our corporate events is designed to bring out the best in your team, and uses Bear’s unique self-rescue ethos and the great outdoors to achieve tangible learning objectives. There are no oil drums in the car park, no imaginary chasms just real life adventure. All of our events are based around a famous explorer including Bear himself, Sir Ernest Shackleton and Sir Edmond Hilary all of who have had some truly epic expeditions in some of the most hostile environments on the planet.

The Bear Grylls Survival Academy has designed a variety of events to suit you and your needs, from lower level adventure learning knot tying, shelter building and fire lighting to the more extreme end of the scale with front facing abseils/rappels, river crossings and the use of helicopters and RIBs. Whatever you are after- we can make it happen!
