Yes, endlessly


Many explorers searched endlessly for new lands.

Adverbs are words that modify or describe verbs, so in this case the word endlessly describes:
1. How did the explorers searched for new lands?
2. In what manner did the explorers search for new lands?

The adverb in this sentence is "Endlessly".

An adverb is something describes a verb.
In this case, "Endlessly" is describing #how# they searched for new lands.
