Transportation to/from Torres del Paine  (2 Answers)

We are staying in Puerto Natales. We would like to take the 3 hour Grey Glacier boat tour at 12:00 on 4/26. I understand we can take a bus from town to the entrance of the park. Are buses still returning to town at 18:00 at this time of year? Some information states the last bus to town is 14:00 and others state 18:00. What other options are available?

How to book a bus to El Calafate?  (9 Answers)

I know there are at least two bus companies that can take me from Puerto Natales to El Calafate, but it doesn't seems like it's possible to book online (at all, not only for foreigners). There seems to be at least one bus per day departing to El Calafate.

Is there a ticket office somewhere in Puerto Natales? Is there a risk that the bus tickets will be sold out in advance?

I will probably have a flight to catch in El Calafate, so I want to be sure. My trip will probably be in the middle of January.

North from Puerto Natales  (6 Answers)

Hi!
We are travelling south to north Chile from mid-october and we're getting a bit stuck in the planning stage beyond PN. We don't drive and don't fancy the ferry. We've heard there is a bus from Punta Arenas to Peurto Montt but suspect that it only goes in Jan/Feb. Any info/advice?

w hike with rental cars in torres del paine  (1 Answer)

We are planning to hike the W in Torres del Paine in March. We are flying into Punta Arenas and would like to rent a car and drive on our own from there to the park (rather than be stuck with the bus schedules). If we park at one end of the W and hike to the other, is there any bus or shuttle service that can take us back to our car at the end of the trek? Does it matter if we start at the Lago Grey side of the W or at the Lago Amarga side? Do you know where we can find information about any such shuttles/bus transports within the park? Thank you!

Last question regarding getting IN and OUT of the park and about the W trek  (4 Answers)

Hi all, last question, I promise! :D

We are coming in by bus from El Calafate. Is it possible to get to the park on the same day by catching another bus? We would prefer not to stay the night in Puerto Natales because of a tight schedule. Can anyone point me to a bus schedule or other companies that might transport us? The same question goes for a return trip, do buses leave late at night or early in the morning for PN such that we can catch the bus back to E.C?

Second question - how do you get to start the trek? Will the bus from PN drop us off at various starting points? I thought to start the W you had to catch a boat across the lake... will this be open in the evening if we come in late from PN? Is there a website with these times? Or can we start the W at another place?

Our timing is that we are coming in Dec 1 from El Calafate and need to return on Dec 7 to El Calafate and hopefully do the whole W in that time period. I hope we are realistic!

reservation or not .....???  (1 Answer)

We are planning a visit to Puerto Natales early December this year.
We wonder if it is necessary to make reservations for day trips to Torres del Paine as well as the boat trip to the Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers. Or can we just wait till we arrive in Puerto Natales (one day before we intend to do the first trip).
Thanks

Torres Del Paine, Lake Region  (7 Answers)

Can someone please suggest the best itinerary based from Puerto Montt (I'll be flying into Puerto Montt from Santiago) and involving any combination of day
trips (boat, car, bus) to puerto varas, osorno,
petrohue, chiloe, puella through the lagos (I can't go to Bariloche,
because I don't have an argentine visa; unless I can get an argentine visa at
the border).

I have around 3-4 days to spend around Puerto Montt, after which I
want to fly to Punta Arenas (don't want to risk taking the Navimag,
because it looks like the weather is dicy) and visit the Torres Del
Paine for another 4-5 days (Is it possible to include trips to the bernardo and
serrano, and the isla magalleno?). I'll be flying back to Santiago
from Punta Arenas. I can rent a car or so, can spend around3000 for 2 people excluding flights (the lesser the better :)

Thanks very much for your help.

Cheers 'n Regards,
Ganesh.

Hosteria Lago Tyndall near Torres del Paine any comments and suggestions?  (2 Answers)

I'm making my fourth trip to Chile and finally getting around to Torre del Paine. Having trouble figuring out where to stay near the Park. I'll be there in winter so any trekking i do will be VERY short. Maybe to the vehicle and back again. LOL. They offer what seems to be a good winter package. Transportation to and from the lodge, meals, and tours of the area. Has anyone stayed there?
