    Default Patagonia adventure

    I was doing a little research on one of my bucket list trips (Lake Strobel), and came across this diary. Not sure if anyone else has seen it, but man these guys had a good 24 day fishing trip for around 2000 Euros.

    Nope, and prices of 3 years ago as well. Still - a very good reference. And man, 24 days is a LONG time!!! I'd skip Lagos personally. If I can't fish the stream why bother??

    Seems via Flightcentre you are looking at about R6990.00 to Buenos Aires.

    Its the flight from Buenos Aires to where you plan on fishing that is expensive, some instances its more than the flight to Buenos.

    Checked my mail, I enquired last year September from JHB to Buenos A.
    Their response was:

    The internal flight costing is R4780 inclusive of taxes and these internal flights inside South America have to be combined with international flights to be issued.

    The cost for just the Air tickets will be R12800 all taxes included per person.
    That is from JHB to BA to Bariloche.
