freyas has indicated that this thread is about Puerto Natales

Can anyone confirm or suggest a reasonable way to get from Ushuaia or Tierra Del Fuego (Argentina) to Puerto Natales (Chile)? I don't want to fly, I am interested in bus service or car share options if any.

thanks in advance!

As far as I know and can remember (it's been a while), there are direct buses to Punta Arenas that basically take a whole day (10-12 hours). From there, frequent buses go to Puerto Natales, but I think you have to spend the night again in Punta Arenas, as the last bus might have left then. I believe it's about 3 hours or so to Puerto Natales, so nicer to travel in the morning and enjoy the views anyway.

Happy and safe travels!

You're right, that's probably what I will do. Bus to Punta Arenas, stay overnight then bus to Puerto Natales. I got this link from another inquiry: http://blog.swoop-patagonia.co.uk/travelling-ushuaia-punta-arenas/

Thanks!
