Logistics to reach Explora Salto Chico from BA and onwards.

Jump to last reply

We are in the early stages of planning a trip in late March/April 2014 with a time period of three weeks. One of the stops would include Patagonia, Explora Salta Chico. Thinking of flying into Ba from North America. Spend a few days in BA and then - according to their web site- "take a flight from BA to El Calafate, then bus or private transport to Cerro Castillo, Chili".

Has anyone done this trip recently ? Are there limited flights (days of week or time of day) from BA to El Calafate ? Any airlines/flights to recommend checking out ? Any recommendations on private driver or is public transport pretty straight forward ? How long is the drive from El Calafate to Cerro Castillo ?

Thanks for any help. Just trying to get my head around some of the transportation issues on this part of the trip.
