Calafate to Chalten Transportation - Hiring a Driver?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning on doing some hiking in Chalten for a couple days, but my flight time into Calafate might be too tight to catch the bus to Chalten. I have a question about the bus, but mostly I have questions about hiring a driver. I do not want to rent a car.

* Is the bus to Chalten in a location right off the airport? I'm just wondering about timing, incase I am able to make the connection and if it's relatively close by, or if I need to plan for extra amount of time to get to the bus.
* Is it easy to hire a driver from Calafate to Chalten?
* Is this something I need to reserve ahead of time, or are they readily available upon arrival at the airport?
* Typically how much does hiring a driver cost for this trip?
* Does anyone have recommendations on a driver if they've done this in the past?
*Is the process the same if I want to hire a driver from Chalten to Calafate?

Thank you in advance for your help and guidance!
