Bus from El Calafate to Puerto Natales and back in APRIL

Hi,

I've been searching the depths of the interwebs for some consistent information about bus companies that go from El Calafate to Puerto Natales and vice-versa, but there is a lot of conflicting information out there! Does anyone know which bus companies offer this route and what the schedules are in April? I hear that the service is reduced at that time of the year.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Cootra and Turismo Zaahj do the route, maybe others. Schedules do change off season but each company decides when exactly that is. It usually just means that afternoon buses no longer run but morning ones run all year. You can either wait until you get there to book a day or two ahead or ask your lodging to book it for you. Some places will. Or contact Turismo Zaahj:

I am in PN now after getting the Turisa Zaahj from El Calafate and I think their schedule (as per website) is exactly the same for every month. Decent bus, friendly driver. Pretty simple and straightforward trip.

Hi, I am heading to Puerto Natales from El Calafate at the end of April. I am trying to find a bus that will go on a Saturday evening, Sunday or a Monday so that I do not miss my reservations at hostels and TDP lodges. I know that Turismo Zaahj only leaves from El Calafate T, TH, Sat and was wondering if anyone knows what days and times the Cootra company goes, or any other company than Turismo Zaahj. Any info on this would be very helpful. Thank you!
