What Can I Expect

The Bear Grylls Challenge - have you got what it takes? Test your brain, body and reflexes with these adrenaline-fuelled challenges that have been inspired by Bear's own adventures. Buy your voucher to do one or two of these activities on offer in Birmingham.

The great thing about these Challenge gift vouchers is that they are totally flexible. You buy the voucher and the person you're buying it for can choose which of the 'Hero' activities on offer they'd like to do. The activity menu includes archery, shooting, axe throwing and climbing. 

As the man himself says: 'The challenges are inspired by those I've encountered around the world and specially adapted to give adventurous souls some mind-blowing fun'. So prepare to push yourself and your body. Just remember: never give up!

In the archery bunker it's all about mind-set and technique. Lock your gaze directly at the targets and see if you can get your arrows flying straight and true. Will you beat Bear's own top score?

Over at the shooting range, you'll be handling air rifles and pistols to shoot at a variety of targets. No worries if you've never even picked up a gun before let alone fired one, all the coaching you need is included.

For climbing, 'all that matters is the step ahead' as Bear wisely says. Time to be bold and take that first step. There are over 20 different climbing routes on offer, inspired by the epic climbing in Yosemite National Park and you can try bouldering too.

Axe throwing will inspire your inner lumberjack. You'll be shown how to lift, handle and throw the axes, so let's see if you manage to get it to land square-on into those chunks of wood!

As well as doing your chosen Hero activities, these Bear Grylls Challenge vouchers also give you unlimited access to the assault course (where you scramble, climb, crawl and jump against the clock). Stay sharp, keep your wits and go for it, just like Bear!
