Endurance22: The Hunt for
Shackleton’s Lost Ice Ship

Reach the World, in partnership with the Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust, is thrilled to announce the Endurance22 Expedition to Antarctica, the newest and largest virtual exchange expedition in organizational history! The Endurance22 Expedition will search for Sir Ernest Shackleton’s sunken ship, Endurance, the most famous undiscovered shipwreck in the world.

In 1915, Shackleton and the 27 members of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition found themselves trapped in pack ice in the remote Weddell Sea.

Even though Endurance was built to withstand ice-choked polar seas and was easily one of the strongest ships of its era, the expedition team watched helplessly as the shifting ice slowly crushed the ship, which then sank 10,000 feet to the sea floor. All alone at the bottom of the world, Shackleton led what is now a world-famous journey of survival, crossing hundreds of miles of unstable ice, punishing seas and even snow-covered mountain peaks to find rescue. Everyone survived to tell the tale, but Endurance has never been seen since.
