Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if anyone had any advice as to the cheapest way to get from Bariloche to Perito Moreno Glacier, I have been searching for a bus company who does this trip but haven't been able to find. Does anyone have any advice ?

Thanks for the help

Gabrielle

Hey Gabrielle, here are some blogs from the glacier, they might help you: http://www.travelpod.com/s/blogs/perito+mo...glacier?ob=time

It looks like you'll have to find a way to El Calafate first.

Indeed you will have to go via El Calafate. It's not easy to get from Bariloche to El Calafate. It's at least 16 hours of travel time. You should be able to catch a bus that has decent sleeper seats and do the trip overnight. I'm guessing most of the buses will go out to the coast highway. That might look long in comparison to Ruta 40, but believe me, Ruta 40 is a long, slow, dry & dusty ride.
