Can you tell me how to get, how to get to El Calafate!

by kentishgirl Online Now Feb 20, 2007 at 7:11 PM

Hi all,

Well in the planning stages for the last sector of our round the world trip - South America. All very exciting and all very daunting! It's so big....LOL.

At the moment I researched and got us as far as Bariloche, from here we want to head south to El Calafate, the month will be July/early August - winter of course. I found a tour that went down but only in summer, Aerolineas are quite expensive to fly and dont fly direct until the middle of August.

So, buses - maybe take a bus to Comodoro Rivadavia and another onwards? Has anyone any recommendations? Done this trip in winter? Have any other suggestions?
I have tryed looking at viabariloche and andesmar without any luck!

We are short on time and money for this trip!Any idea of timetables and bus fares ?

Many thanks in advance

    I think you will have to travel by regular bus, but to be honest don't know the winter schedules.
    a. Bariloche > Puerto Madryn > Rio Gallegos > El Calafate
    ( takes about 34 hours/costs about 110 USD)
    b. Bariloche > Comodoro Rivadavia > Rio Gallegos > El Calafate
    ( takes about 30 hours/ costs about 100 USD)

    happy travels
