ushuaia to el calafate by bus

We want to travel to El Calafate from Ushuaia by bus and wonder if the bus trip via Rio Gallegos is scenic and interesting, or would we be better off flying, given that it takes about two days by bus.


would it be better to travel via Punta Arenas/Puerto natales to El Calafate from Ushuaia?

Which is the more scenic/interesting route?

I thing it´d be better to fly. The scenario is quite similar all the way and after two days......

But if you are really interested going by bus, going via Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales, and staying a few nights on those places, will give you the chance to know more places.
