Local Currency Guide

Many of our expedition cruises will offer the chance for you to make purchases in the counties that you visit. Therefore, you may want to take a small amount of money in the local currency if you feel you may want to do this. We have created a handy guide for you below so that you know which currency you may need. Antarctica may seem a strange place to go shopping, but there is a small gift shop in Port Lockroy which lies on the peninsula.
