Getting There & Away

Exploring the area is tough without your own vehicle, though hitchhiking is feasible in summer. Destinos Patagónicos is the representative for Albus, the only bus company serving the village. There is a single daily bus at the awkward time of 11pm to Neuquén (AR$815, seven hours), via Aluminé (AR$198, 1½ hours) and Zapala (AR$510, 4¼ hours).
