Our sincere apologies that we have not quoted the price in Pound Sterling. As you can imagine with the current uncertainty around Brexit and how this will effect the Euro/Sterling exchange rate over the coming year, it is impossible for us to fix a Sterling rate at this time. All the costs of the trip are priced in Euro, (Flights from Dublin & Trekking Expenses) this cost will not change. We have decided therefore to price the trek in Euro to make it fair on all paying participants.
