Due to the advanced bookings taking up all SUVS by now, I'm looking into finding a driver who can deliver me from Calafate to Estancia El Condor in November 2014. This is just initial research. Who offers this kind of service? So far the estancia hasn't responded to my queries about how to get to them. I have a standard car rented, but I don't trust them on gravel, 4WD roads in spring ( I live in the Rockies and I know better). Rental is horribly expensive. I could bus to El Chalten, but how do I get up and back down from El Condor? Very happy to entertain all ideas and options.
Thanks again to all, including my much experienced BsAs friend, for suggestions.
