The trip's all planned with just one more element to sort out! We will finish at Paine Grande and will stay an extra night there. The following day we will have the whole day to return to the Laguna Amarga to pick up the tour bus back to El Calafate. I have looked at other postings and from that we plan to get the boat from Paine Grande to Pudeto. We would probably then want to pick up a bus to go back to Laguna Amarga. Can anyone confirm the timetable for the boat? Am I right in thinking it does not cross very often? Is it also right that it is not necessary to book the boat?
On the other side, it looks like there are different bus companies that would pick up to Laguna Amarga. Is it necessary to book this bus or can we just jump on? Do these buses go quite often? If not, how long would it take to walk from Pudeto to Amarga? I don't want to get left behind!
