TORONTO (June 25, 2012) — Bringing back the daringly original and authentic survival experience to OLN, Survivorman Les Stroud returns to the wilderness, putting himself in the most dangerous situations to date. With four, new, one-hour specials – the first instalment of the original OLN special series Survivorman 10 Dayspremieres Saturday, June 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The remaining three specials will air consecutively every Saturday for four weeks, exclusively on OLN.
 
Struggling to stay alive in the harshest of conditions, Stroud travels to the Norwegian Mountains and the desert Island of Tiburon, Mexico, staying in each location for 10 days alone with no water gear, and very little food. Suffering extreme weather systems, freezing cold temperatures, and searing hot climates – Stroud must find food, water, and shelter in order to survive. With his signature black humour and candid on-camera style, Stroud documents his struggles on film as he overcomes seemingly insurmountable obstacles, bringing viewers along his unscripted, raw, and authentic journeys.
 
See below for individual special descriptions.

Survivorman 10 Days
:
 
Norway Mountain: Part 1 - Saturday, June 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
Stranding himself in the Norwegian Mountains for 10 days, Stroud’s journey starts off on a negative note as his car breaks down, forcing him to carry 65-pounds of camera equipment.    Building crude shelter and eating what he finds, Stroud proves it takes true will to survive.
 
Norway Mountain: Part 2 - Saturday, July 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
Proving to be the most difficult survival expedition of Stroud’s 20-year career, he continues his quest for survival in the Norwegian Mountains. With no food or water, no safety or camera crew, Les must haul 65 pounds of camera gear down the slick wet mountainside in the hope of finding shelter. Scavenging what he can from the barren landscape, exhausted and starving, Stroud draws on his years of experience and the will to survive in order to make it the full ten days.
 
Tiburon Island Coast -Saturday, July 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
Stranding himself on the desert island of Tiburon, Les Stroud is shipwrecked. The coastline is a barren stretch with no source of freshwater and Stroud must distill seawater and scavenge for clams and oysters amongst the rocks and mud to survive. With searing hot temperatures in the day and freezing cold temperatures at night, along with the threat of stingrays in the shallow waters and coyotes hunting the shoreline, Stroud battles hunger, fatigue and loneliness.
 
Tiburon Desert Island - Saturday, July 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
After five days of surviving on the shore, Stoud treks in-land searching for food, water and shelter. In the mountainous desert landscape, Stroud must avoid packs of wild coyotes, scorpions and rattlesnakes. Alone and carrying heavy camera equipment, he is at risk of exposure and dehydration.
