TOTAL COSTS836,40

All summed up it is about 836,40 € for one person for two weeks. Please note that this not include food. Price of the food is similar to any other western Europe country. In mountains we have cooked some easy food. In city we tried local food and did not choose always the cheapest solution.

If you want have your trip to be more low cost, you can save a lot on accomodation. In mountains we have slept in huts or outside in sleeping bags. In the city we have used hotels. Of course you can find in spain a lots of camping places, which dramatically reduce accomodation costs. I wanted to spend more night outside in sleeping bags, but my boyfriend wanted to sleep in more comfort way. However it is not always better to choose camping. If you check accomodation on booking few hours before you will arrive to the hotel, you can get pretty big discounts. At the end price was almost same as for the camping in some situation.
