List of Real Life Outdoor Survival Movies

Here’s a list of real-life and true-story Outdoor Survival Movies that are all worth watching if you spend lots of time in the Outdoors. Do you know of other true story’s about people surviving in the Wilderness? Please share with our viewers below. Thank you!


127 Hours – Survival Movie

127 Hours – The true story of Aron Ralston surviving alone after his arm’s stuck by a boulder inside a cavern at the National Park Canyons of Utah. After 127 hours trapped, Aron’s only chance to survive is to cut off his arm with a dull knife. When it comes to outdoor survival movies, this show’s a “must watch” for anyone venturing off into the wilderness alone. I would not recommend watching 127 Hours with small children as some of the scenes are real footage Aron filmed while being trapped.


Adventure’s of the Wilderness Family

The Adventures Of The Wilderness Family‘s based on a true story of the Robinson Family moving from Los Angeles to the Great Outdoors. Skip and his wife Pat, and children Jenny and Toby, build a log cabin in the middle of the wilderness. The Wilderness Family soon befriends a pair of bears that love showing up at dinner time. It’s an inspiring outdoors movie the entire family can watch. Who wouldn’t want to take the Adventure’s of the Wilderness Family?


Alaska: The Movie

Alaska – After the death of his wife, Jake Barnes moves to Alaska with his son and daughter starting a bush pilot business. To make a long story short, Jake crashes the bush plane. His kid’s need to track him down and find him surviving somewhere in the Alaskan wilderness.


Alive: I Am Alive Movie

Alive is a true story of the survivors of a plane crash in the Andes mountains on Friday, October 13, 1972. Most of the passengers were on the Uruguay rugby team surviving 72 days in unimaginable freezing conditions. How did they stay Alive with no natural food source anywhere on the Andes mountain for so long? The only chance they had was eating the only meat available, their friends that didn’t make it. The Alive movie will keep you up all night wondering “what would you do under the same circumstances”? What would you do to stay Alive?


All Is Lost

All Is Lost – Alone at Sea is a true story about one man surviving on his yacht after getting hit by a large shipping container in the middle of the sea. The All is Lost Movie starring Robert Redford, is a Real-life Outdoor Survival Show showing how fast a vacation can turn into a survival situation quickly.


Alone Across Alaska

Alone Across Alaska: 1,000 Miles of Wilderness is a true story about Buck Nelson surviving a hiking trip across Alaska. It’s hard enough surviving Alone in the Alaskan Bush, but then adding a 1000 mile walk to the journey creates a legend. So how did Buck Nelson pull off this amazing outdoor survival movie by himself? With lots of planning and a few supply stashes protected from the Bears along the way.


Into The Wild

Into The Wild Movie’s a true story about Christopher McCandles selling all his possessions and moves to the Alaskan Bush. Can you imagine Christopher hitchhiking to Alaska with little more than the clothes on his back and disappears Into The Wild. First off, McCandles finds an abandon school bus for shelter but lacks the needed survival skills for the harsh environment. Unfortunately, Christopher didn’t survive his journey going Into The Wild. It’s an inspiring Movie with a tragic end.
