Hi there but i cant help you with that but I can recommend a really great place to stay in Ushuaia called Galeazzi Basily. The people taht run it are amazing, originally from BA and they know just about everything about getting around argentina and there English is fluent - if you stayed there they could probably help you or I would be happy to write and ask them for you. In any case if you want to see pics of there place including link and get lots of info on Ushuaia then go to my website at angietravels.com
have a great trip
Thanks for your messages but unless we can get there without going to BA, it looks like we'll really miss out on a great place.
Any advice would be appreciated.
There is one flight a day that from Ushaiaia to Trelew (45mins from Puerto Madryn) that goes via El Calafate (total time about 5hrs 45mins).

P.S. when are you going?
July and August.
Beware Ushuaia at that time of year is going to be very very very cold!

We would also like to go from Ushuaia to Trelew without returing to BA. Can you tell me what airline goes there through El Calafate?
With Aerolineas there is a flight between Ushuaia and Trelew with a stop in El Calafate (extremely expensive flight by the way!).
Another option is LADE (http://www.lade.com.ar/destinos.html), but they make a lot of short stops. I flew with them once, that was quit okay, but I hear many people complaining about LADE......
thanks However, at the moment, i am not seeing these flights on the airline web sites . is this likely to change? Lan goes to El Califate but I can't find anything on to Trelew from there.
