Mind you, I don't know about the ruta 40-bit, which is crucial in your tight planning. There may (should) be direct busses; then again, there may not be, I couldn't find them online. Best make some further inquiries; if you'd have to do that bit by 4x4, you won't make it in time.

Final update; according to my travel agent friend in Salta, there aren't regular busses going south along ruta 40. There are two tourist companies that service Bariloche-El Calafate, on a two-day trip which costs 410 pesos. It's a ridiculous amount of money, but the scenery makes up for it. Tickets are for sale at transitando lo natural, opposite of the Club Andino HQ. Whether they operate off-season, he couldn't tell.

Considering its isolated location, North Argentina Route 40, a trip along Route 40 in a 4WD is an experience that I wouldn’t pass up ….. The mystical route 40 borders the Andes Mountains from the “Puna” to the southern Glaciers. Atop the beauty and magical nature surrounding this highway all along, the trace has a deep cultural and historical significance. Following ancient indigenous routes that were created by the elder leaders of those communities, the route is not a mere road but a significant path through meaningful locations in terms of positive energy and bewitching landscapes. From north to south, its zigzagging leads us into a variety of climates and ecosystems……… I enjoyed the trip and am planning others for this year, Bob
