Season 1 — Episode 14
Adventurer Bear Grylls shows how to survive in Iceland's Arctic conditions. Half a million tourists visit every year to see the freezing glaciers, the steaming geothermal areas, and the huge black sand deserts. One thousand need to be rescued. Bear demonstrates how to make a snow cave, find water in deep tunnels, and avoid frostbite. Finding food is a problem. Bear is forced to eat a sheep's eyeball and catcha ptarmigan — a wild grouse. Iceland is notorious for its constantly changing weather and Bear has to deal with blizzards and 50 mph winds as he attempts to reach safety.
