I'm finding it impossible to find a bus route from Punta Arenas in July to El Calafate. I thought I was meant to stop in Puerto Natales, but apparently no buses run there in July.

So I was told Rio Gallegos but cannot find the bus timetable for this. Does anyone know?

I want to see the Perito Morino Glacier.

According to Buses Fernández they run 8 buses a day from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales "todos los días del año" (ie every day):

Bus time tables

Incidentally Turismo Condor operate full day trips from Puerto Natales to Perito Moreno (via El Calafate) every day (but have a 4 person minimum).

    In addition, most hostels in El Calafate (eg Hostel America del Sur) offer tours from their front desk. We did it in July 2010, a day tour to Perito Moreno, and it was fantastic. On my blog

  • I was there for the 2010 solar eclipse (I was standing just behind this guy), but yeah it was freezing. In summer, I gather the hiking is amazing.
