A regular face on our television screens, Bear is our resident wilderness presenter. Known for Man vs. Wild, Running Wild, Survival School, The Island, and many other adventure shows, the explorer makes the most extreme survival techniques entertaining.

Part of the British Special Forces, Bear discovered adventuring as a Specialist Combat Survival Instructor and Patrol Medic. Courageous and determined, in 1997 he was the Youngest Briton to climb Mount Ama Dablam in the Himalayas, which was famously described by Sir Edmond Hillary as: unclimbable. As a result, Bear’s book, Facing Up became an international best seller.

Bear always dreamt of climbing Everest, but only a small handful of Brits have achieved this feat, and with the death of one climber for every six that reaches the peak and makes it back alive, this was an incredibly difficult challenge.

Only 18 months previously, Bear had broken three vertebrae in a parachuting accident. This near fatal accident left Bear physically inert for almost a year. Narrowly escaping a lifetime of paralysis, and indescribable amounts of pain, bear struggled through to a full recovery.

As soon as he regained full mobility, Bear was planning his ascent up the Earth’s highest mountain.

Powering through extreme weather conditions, oxygen deprivation and climbing hardships, Bear reached the summit at just 23 years old.

In 2007, Bear became the first man to fly a powered paraglider above Mount Everest, in the process raising over £1 million for charity. An eco-warrior at heart, Bear used wind powered kite skiing, bio-ethanol powered jet-skis and electric powered paragliders on the expedition.

Bear also led a Jet Ski team around the UK testing a pioneering new fuel made from rubbish. On top of this, he owns a nature reserve in Wales, and became the first person to cross the Atlantic via the Arctic Circle in an open rigid inflatable boat, in aid of The Prince’s Trust.

A popular TV contributor to This Morning, Through The Keyhole, and host of Survivor Games, Mission Survive and Bear Grylls’ Survival School, and so many more highly-rated wilderness shows, Bear is as comfortable in front of a camera as behind a dog-pulled sleigh. He has presented on The National Geographic ‘Young Explorers’ series and written articles for The Daily Mail, The Telegraph and The Sunday Telegraph. The accompanying book to his television show 'Born Survivor' of the same name spent 10 weeks on the Sunday Times Bestseller List.

Bear was also used by the UK Ministry of Defence to head the Army's anti-drugs TV campaign.

He was appointed as the youngest-ever Chief Scout at the age of 35.

Bear has launched a new 3D interactive arena show, in which he takes audiences on a journey of exploration and discovery through harsh environments. The immersive theatre celebrates courage and discovery.

A true explorer, leading the face of adventure. Bear can entertain and dazzle his after-dinner audiences with his endless library of incredible tales, wit and exuberant charm.

His speaking topics include:

- Adventure and the Environment

- Survival skills

- The dangers and delights of the great outdoors

- Overcoming adversity in sport

- Testing human limits
