Getting There & Away

Aluminé’s bus terminal is just downhill from the plaza, an easy walk to hotels. Campana Dos and Albus go at least once daily to/from Neuquén (AR$627, 5½ hours), Zapala (AR$321, 2¾ hours), San Martín de los Andes (AR$283, three hours) and Villa Pehuenia (AR$198, 1¾ hours).

Heading south, RP 23 is a gravel road in good condition, though it's narrow and winding in places.
