Transfers Torres del Paine and El Calafate

Private Transfers

It should be noted that getting from Torres del Paine to El Calafate, missing out Puerto Natales is so easy. Therefore, we offer various modes of transfer for this route depending on how many people need the service. Our partner vehicles include cars, minibuses, larger buses and Ford and Sprinter transit buses. However, please be aware that a shared transfer can only be arranged if other people request the same transfer route on the same day.

Regular Bus

Above all, there are regular bus services between the main cities of Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales, as well as El Calafate and Puerto Natales. Experience Chile will be pleased to purchase regular bus tickets for all our clients who book a W Trek or other Patagonia Itinerary through us.

Rent a Car

In addition to the above options, rent a car is also an alternative.

Regular Bus

This is a scheduled bus that departs from a set place at a set time and will have other passengers on board.

Private Transfer

This is a transfer for only those people who have booked it. You may book a private transfer for yourself, you and your partner or your group. A private transfer will pick-up and drop off at places of your choice (as long as the they are physically accessible for the vehicle) and at a time of your choice too. Vehicles for private transfers range from cars to minibuses and to larger buses for groups.

Shared Ride

(Shared Transfer)

This is a transfer that is booked as a private transfer, but with the ability for it to be shared by other people. It will depart from the place requested by the person who has originally ordered the transfer, and go to the destination also ordered by the person who originally set it up.

The benefit of this transfer is that it will usually go from a place that is convenient to all passengers, and also drop off at a place that is convenient to all passengers. Usually there will be few people sharing the ride, so it is more like a private transfer, but the cost is divided between those sharing it. It has to be said that it is not so easy to coordinate this option, but we will try if there is the demand.

Repositioning Transfer

Each time a private transfer is ordered, the vehicle has to go empty from its origin to collect the passengers who have order the transfer. The same is true after the passengers have been dropped off, the vehicle will return empty. Here we offer you the opportunity to use the leg of the transfer that would otherwise be empty.

The cost for using this empty leg is less than ordering a private transfer for the same leg.

Naturally, this service can only be offered if the dates and route coincide with the requirements of the person or people who have previously ordered the route that others want too.


Torres del Paine Zone Rent-a-Car

We offer rent a car as part of any itinerary we are creating for you, but not as a stand-alone service.

The advantages to renting a car are that you have total independence to go where you want when you want.

The disadvantage is that the driver will usually get tired, miss a lot of the stunning scenery, and ultimately, often have the problem to get back to where the car is left if you end up doing the W Trek in Torres del Paine, for example. More information…
