Got a transfer or general transport problem to, and / or, from Torres del Paine or El Calafate?
We can arrange private, regular or shared transfers Torres del Paine and El Calafate, or Puerto Natales or Punta Arenas from airports, from hotels, whatever you need when you need it.
FREE or half price transfers when you book with us, the Explora, Tierra or Awasi lodges for min 4-night all-inclusive stay, if transfer is not included by the hotel. Other transfer offers too, if we are arranging other parts of your itinerary. The final offer depends on how much we are arranging for you.
We will coordinate your Torres del Paine transfer needs by way of getting you regular bus tickets, arranging a private transfer, coordinating a shared transfer or enabling you to benefit from occupying an otherwise empty transfer. We can also arrange for a rent a car from Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales or El Calafate that includes the border paperwork required if taking the car across the border.

Modes of Transfer
We offer various modes of transfer depending on how many people need the service. Our partner vehicles include cars, minibuses, larger buses and Ford and Sprinter transit buses.
This is a scheduled bus that departs from a set place at a set time and will have other passengers on board.
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.
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.
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…
