Tecni-Austral offers bus service in both directions.

Tue/Thu/Sat -- Punta Arenas-to-Ushuaia

Mon/Wed/Fri -- Ushuaia-to-Punta Arenas

More details here: www.tolkarturismo.com.ar/eng/terrestres.htm

Click on the "See Frequency Charts" link to view the current schedule. I've never done it by bus though, so I don't know how reliable it is.

Hitchhiking is a possibility -- but a very remote one. You're going from one country to another, so you'd need to find someone who is making a round trip -- it's just about impossible to rent a car in Chile and drop it off in Argentina (or vice versa). And it's a ballpark 12-hour trip; probably not worth the risk of trying to hitchhike all the way. Sorry I don't have any first-hand info on this -- I've traveled back and forth many times, but always by ship. Lots simpler, but it does take 3 or 4 nights.

Hello, does anyone know if it's possible to buy bus tickets for Ushuaia - Punta Arenas in advance online? Lonely Planet and it seems some blogs recommend buying in advance as they may sell out. Thank you.
