Best to do 'Apres' the slopes...
Getting to Val d'Isere is EASY... You have three ways... By air, by rail or by road. Each has its own merits as discussed below.
This represents the easiest, quickest and most flexible option. Val d'Isere is about 3h away from Geneva International Airport by car. The roads to and from Val d'Isere and the airport are the livelihood of the resort therefore are kept clear and moving except under the very worst of traffic / weather conditions.
Geneva International Airport (GVA) offers flights from all over the UK (and elsewhere of course). Over 18 destinations up and down the UK connect to Geneva, Belfast to Bristol, London to Liverpool, and whether you chose Easyjet, BMI or British Airways there are many airlines to choose from. Please click here to see more information on flights.
Other airports you can chose from are Grenoble, Chambery and Lyon. There are many flight options on multiple routes and with multiple airlines connecting to these airports and it is worth noting that transferring by car means there is not much difference in transfer time from these other airports. However, there are usually fewer flight and transfer options.
The Eurostar is a great option. Take the Eurostar services from London St Pancras or Ashford International in Kent DIRECT to Bourg St Maurice nestled at the foot of the
mountain road up to Val d'Isere.
Travel time from the UK can be as little as 7 hours.
There are two services each week and each way.
An overnight train that arrives in Bourg St Maurice at around 7am on Saturday morning.
A daytime train that arrives in Bourg St Maurice at around 7pm on Saturday evening.
A daytime train that leaves Bourg St Maurice at around 10am on Saturday morning.
An overnight train that leaves Bourg St Maurice at around 9pm on Saturday evening.
By taking both overnight trains you have 8 days of skiing available.
Alternative options include the services via Paris.
Depending on traffic it can take from 40 mins to drive the 20 miles up to Val d’Isere.
Driving is a great option especially for families.
It is approximately 620 miles from Calais to Val d'Isere. Fast roads, light traffic, breathtaking scenery; driving in France is a joy.
From Calais towards Reims, Dijon, Lyon and finally towards the mountains the route can be done in one go or stop overnight at a motorway motel en-route.
Expect to pay about €70 in tolls each way BUT there are no worries of flight delays, excess baggage fees PLUS you can stock up on supplies from home or en-route and then duty free shop on your way home again!
