WELCOME TO SHACKLETON CHALLENGES

Shackleton Challenges is a unique expedition experience and training programme that we have designed to complement the range of Shackleton expedition-grade apparel. Our goal is to enable people of all abilities to develop their skills in some of the world’s most spectacular and extreme environments. I know from my own expeditions that taking on a challenge can have a transformational impact. This is the motivation behind each of our meticulously-planned itineraries. I hope you find something here that makes your heart beat faster.

REVIEWS

Both Searle and Rudd explain how endurance is as much mental as it is physical; that the journey is as much inward as it is outward. Surely Shackleton would agree.

MEET YOUR GUIDES

We work with some of the very best polar guides, ensuring the highest possible safety, tuition and expertise on every expedition. Every Shackleton Challenge has at least two highly-qualified guides, led by Director of Expeditions Louis Rudd, and managed by Expedition Manager, Wendy Searle – between them they have accumulated thousands of miles on foot in polar regions. You will have several interactions with Wendy and Louis prior to departure, they will advise on pre-expedition training, kit recommendation and what to expect when on a Shackleton Challenge.
