Our Judges say:

Fish, pick and shoot your way round your adventure bad ass if you ask me.

Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions

Could you survive purely by foraging and hunting? Four guys set off on a bikepacking trip with no food, planning to eat only what they can find or catch along the way.

Huntin', shootin', fishin' and mountain bikin'... but mainly starvin'. A properly challenging wildwoods adventure. Watching footage of fishing for wild salmon has never been so exciting. This is the kind of adventure I never want to do but it makes for a fascinating film. Recommended.

The Foodless Odyssey has been a longtime dream of Pro mountain biker Matt Hunter. The idea is to bike-pack through hundreds of kilometers of wilderness on the remote Island of Haida Gwaii, living entirely off the land. The rules were simple, we would carry all the survival tools we needed to bike,fish,hunt and camp…. but absolutely no food. Everything we would consume for the weeklong journey would have to be harvested from the land.
