Will Ferrell, Bear Grylls, Man Vs. Wild

Discovery Channel

It's nice to know Bear Grylls had someone to snuggle up with when he got to Sweden.

For an upcoming episode of the popular Discovery Channel series Man vs. Wild, Grylls invited another intrepid adventurer to join him in exploring the Swedish hinterlands—funnyman Will Ferrell.

The duo kicked it old-school as they braved subzero temperatures, jumped out of a helicopter, rappelled down a frozen waterfall, fashioned snowshoes out of tree saplings and hunted for food in the icy forest.

And although we figured Ferrell had done this on a dare already, Grylls showed the star of the upcoming Land of the Lost how to drink his own urine. Apparently it went great with the reindeer eyeballs.

"To be able to participate in an episode of Man vs. Wild was a thrill of a lifetime, even though I did get urine-drunk, which is sad," feral, er, Ferrell said.

Added Grylls: "Will did an amazing job in subzero, very unforgiving conditions. He trusted me when it mattered and we survived...And he has definitely had an adventure! He should be very proud of how he performed."

Ferrell's Scandinavian sojourn will air the first week of June on Discovery. Not coincidentally, Land of the Lost hits theaters June 5.
