In the heart of the Antarctic, nine adventurers are about to live an extraordinary story. They come from very different backgrounds, but one thing brings them together – a passion for adventure and testing their limits.

Their goal: to follow in the footsteps of one of the greatest legends of the golden age of polar exploration: Ernest Shackleton.
In 1914, after the sinking of his ship The Endurance, this hero saved his entire crew from a certain death. 100 years later our expedition sets out to explore the sub-Antarctic islands of Elephant, South Georgia and the South Sandwich by boat, ski and pulka.

On board the Australis: an expedition leader, a veteran explorer, a former officer, a skipper, a polar guide, a scientist, two young soldiers and an athlete snowboarder.
An expedition to remind us of the fragility of this highly endangered ecosystem, and to improve our understanding of these remote expanses.
