Life 2 The Limit 2010

In April 2010, ten ordinary people will leave behind family, friends, and the comforts of home, and embark upon an extraordinary journey of self-discovery. Armed with nothing more than the contents of a five-litre backpack, they'll set off for the raw beauty of the Asia Pacific archipelago, and 30 days alone on a remote island. Except they won't be entirely alone: they'll have snakes, insects, and thick tropical jungle for company - and, most challenging of all, each other.

There are no evictions, no immunities, no surprise luxuries: just one month learning to adjust to an alien environment, to make the jungle home, and to somehow survive on the island's fresh water, and whatever food the jungle and ocean offer. Food that will need to be hunted, trapped or caught. Hunger, sleep deprivation, and a range of emotional challenges - for the ten people involved, surviving the island could be their greatest achievement ever, as they discover exactly what it means to live Life 2 the Limit.

Post April 2010
Looking back on a life-changing month...


Three weeks after the last adventurer left the island, all 10 have returned to their normal lives – although normal isn’t what it used to be. Now that the extremes of their Life 2 the Limit challenge are starting to fade – the endless hunger, debilitating heat and lack of sleep – the islanders are looking back on their adventure with new perspective, and they’ve realised the value of what essentially turned into a reflective and transformative experience.

Read what each islander now feels about their time on the island.
