Getting There From Chile

Take the bus from Puerto Natales directly to the glacier. (Check with your hotel or local travel agency for details) This is a long day trip but worth it if you are short of time and want to combine Torres Del Paine and El Calafate in one visit. The journey is approximately 6 hours and they take you directly to the glacier, and then drop you in the centre of El Calafate at the end of the day.
