looking for bus info from punta arenas to punta natales and then on to torres del paine park. (we are thinking of spending two nights in the park.) any info or suggestions you have would be helpful including times, prices. one other detail: we will be traveling with a 2 1/2 year old.
We travelled from Pt natales to Punta Arenas by bus.
We made our reservation at the office of Buses Fernández two days in advance and we got reserved seats. The departure at the local office was just like one on an airport and we had to check in and drop off our luggage. The bus ride takes 3 hours through a rather pleasant scenery. And the bus even had a TV with a movie.
Buses Fernández operates 7 services from 7.15 am till 8.00 pm; we paid 4.000 Chilean pesos for an one way ticket.
Can not help you with information about the bus ride to Torres (we had a rental car), but I'm sure there are several companies servicing this part of your trip.
See for more info about Pt. Natales and Torres del Paine:
