5-Day Solo Remote Wilderness Survival Test [Part 1]


A 5 day, 64km Solo survival test exploring remote wilderness.
This is a 2 part survival camping series. Episode 2 will air next week.

I travel by hiking and packrafting in a raw and rarely seen part of Newfoundland’s breathtaking outdoors – the remote 1,070km2 Avalon Wilderness Reserve. I carry limited food and equipment with the goal to test my wilderness skills and explore as much new ground as possible over the 5 days. I must fish, forage, be resourceful and use strength, and endurance to succeed.
There’s beauty, simple living, hardship and great joys.
It’s a classic adventure in spectacular nature that I am excited to share!

Come along and live the journey.

Take care and thanks for watching – Justin
