Ground Transport in Patagonia

How to travel in Chile and Argentina by ground transportation. How to Buy Bus tickets in Chile or Argentina. Reserving private transfers. Can you rent a car in Futaleufu? Can you rent a car in Patagonia?  Can you rent a car in Torres del Paine?

Argentina

Taxis are available at hotels and airports. Stay away from taxis on the street in Buenos Aires.  If you are at a restaurant or hotel, have them call for a taxi. Uber is now common.  In the rest of the country taxis off the street generally are fine.

Remises are basically taxis without meters, operating with set prices for the trip you want to make. They are common in rural areas, willing to go on dirt roads. Your driver will not speak English, but they are trustworthy and will try to understand you. Exchile can make the reserves for to or from Esquel or Trevelin.

Between the airport in Esquel to  Trevelin and Futaleufu.

Private Transfers work with tourism. The vehicles are bigger with drivers that work with tourists. They can be arranged to meet you with your last name on a sign as you walk out of baggage claim.  All travel arrangements with Gilda

Buses in Argentina are nicer with more comfort than in the USA.

In Buenos Aires the bus from the international airport to the domestic airport is 1hr. It is included in your fare if you fly internationally with Aerolineas Argentina. If you are running late take a cab and gain 15 minutes.  

Buses Between Bariloche and Esquel: The buses are very comfortable with a great view.  Pre-Reserve through our office or here:

Rental Cars are available in Argentina but we think it easier to travel without them. However if you are interested we can help you with one of the most stunning driving circuits in Patagonia.


Chile

Taxis: The international terminal and domestic terminal is in the same airport in Santiago. If you are flying from Puerto Montt to Chaiten upon arriving at the Puerto Montt airport use a taxi to get to the local La Paloma Airport.

Shuttles as in the US are shared vans at the airport to your destination.

Collectivos, are common in most cities of Chile. They are a shared taxi that have a given route all day long. Very economical, if you are staying in a Chilean city.

Private Transfers work with tourism. The vehicles are bigger, the drivers are used to working with tourists. They can be arranged to meet you with your last name on a sign as you walk out of baggage claim. They are more expensive. All travel arrangements with Gilda

Long distance Buses in Chile are nice and offer more comfort than in the USA.

Puerto Montt to Chaiten to Futaleufu: Only purchased in Puerto Montt Terminal. More information on this route
