Budget for Patagonia

Here is a breakdown of our costs during our 11 days in Patagonia. The three of us, my boyfriend, our friend and I, travelled in December 2015. Cost per person worked out at £819 each.

I’ve included the local prices where I know the exact cost. Costs such as hotels and flights were booked on the internet so they were paid in my local currency, British pounds. I’ve calculated the cost per person, but of course, some of these prices would go up if based on a single person or a couple travelling.
