Getting to Les Arcs
Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport is about 195 km west of Les Arcs, below is details information on the routes used by Mountain Rescue transfers.
In 2000 Lyon airport was named after the French writer and pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Today when we pick you up from here you will find it is about 195km from Les Arcs and takes around 2 hours 45 mins to make the trip to the resort.
The parking for the airport is very close to the exit from the luggage area so its a swift exit from the airport and heading off in the direction of Chambery down the good old A43.
Once past Chambery you head on to the town of Albertville famous for holding the Olympics in 1992.
Onwards from Albertville is you will reach Moutiers (access to the 3 Valleys ski area) and then Bourg Sainte Maurice home of the funicular that travels up to Les Arcs 1600 and the first point of access to skiing from 900 meters. From Bourg you will head up towards all of the Arcs, 1600, 1800, 1950 and finally 2000.
Mountain Rescue recommend you land relatively early in Lyon if travelling on a Saturday. This will help you avoid any traffic build up that usually occurs on the mountain roads later in the day. Departure time from any part of Les Arcs to Lyon will normally be around 5h 30 min before your flight time. This is subject to change.
