With the Australian dollar reaching an 11 month low, expedition cruise company Aurora Expeditions has announced that it will freeze exchange rates on all voyages to the Antarctic in the 2013-2014 season at one Australian dollar to one US dollar.

The Antarctic Peninsula, the Weddell Sea, the Antarctic Circle, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands are among the featured travel destinations. Itineraries also include Fly and Sail options, excluding one sea crossing and allowing more time for landings and exploration in Antarctica. 

Adventure activities range from sea kayaking, camping, and photography to the South Georgia Crossing and polar scuba diving. Some surcharges apply.

Book your flights with MasterCard and receive a A$20 hotel eVoucher.
