Travel from Salta to Calama or North Chile

by alfienimmo Online Now Feb 16, 2012 at 1:41 PM

Hi - We are travelling north Argentina from Salta and hope to get via bus to Calama, Chile. We aim to keep travelling north to Peru.

Does anyone know the best way to travel by road this way? We hope to travel via bus, but happy to look at other options as well.

    I did the trip from Calama to Salta (i came from Lima,Peru, crossing by Arica to Calama) all by bus. It was a really interesting journey. But you have to make sure that you have the right schedules for the buses. From Salta there are 2 buses to Calama: Geminis (www.geminis.cl) and Pullman (www.pullman.cl). Both run only three times a week: Tuesday, Thrusday and Sunday at 7am. And it takes more than 10 hours. You can check the web page of each one and try to make the phone calls to get some more information and also the prices. Or if u are in Salta and have some time to check around go to the Terminal (address: Hipólito Irigoyen 339) both companies leave from the same place, Pullman (stand 15) Geminis (stand 16).
    Hope i helped you a little bit.
