Welcome to Survivor Island, not your typical adventure. The concept of Survivor Island is to journey into your psychology, your mental toughness by abandoning you on a deserted island and requiring you to make do with what that island has to offer. You will go nowhere (so no point A to point B journey) as you will be stuck on the island. There will be no shelter, no water, no equipment to catch anything. For you to acquire these things, you will need to innovate, create and work together as a team.
