The Bear Grylls Survival Academy Experience!

After a welcome lunch, delegates were transported in a fleet of Land Rovers to the shores of Upper Lough Erne before crossing to the private and beautiful Killygowan Island which also forms part of the Belle Isle Castle & Private Island.

On the island, the Bear Grylls Survival Academy team provided high quality training and fun and unique experiences to hone survival skills which are designed to be both challenging and rewarding in equal measure.
