Travel options to Chamonix

By Air

Chamonix is only an hour’s car journey from Geneva Airport making transfers a doddle. This means our guests often ski on arrival and departure days!

Geneva is a major network hub and is served by most of the international carriers across Europe and the world.

From the UK, the most popular airlines are Easyjet, British Airways and Swiss with direct flights from all over the UK. You can fly from a staggering 25 UK airports.

On arrival we can arrange to meet you at the airport and whisk you back to Chamonix in one of our limousines or you can hire a car or take a taxi. Most of our winter holiday packages include the Geneva Airport transfer. 

By Car

Chamonix is between eight to 10 hours’ drive from most Channel ports. The motorway comes right to the town itself, with a breathtaking last 25kms. If you don’t fancy driving the full distance in a day, break your trip with a stop in Paris, Reims (for Champagne) or Beaune (for Burgundy).

Having a car is undoubtedly a bonus while you're here, giving you greater flexibility to ski different areas and even visit resorts in nearby Italy and Switzerland. Remember to make sure you've got snow chains and/or snow tyres.

By Rail

Relive the romantic railway age by arriving in the Alps on an overnight sleeper. Chamonix's train station is in the centre of town.

TGV services extend to nearby St.Gervais, from where it is a short hop on a regional service up to Chamonix. Visit for more information.

From the UK check the Rail Europe web site for the Snow Train details.
