The journey from Geneva to La Rosière

Your Mountain Rescue transfer driver meets you in arrivals of Geneva airport.

Mountain Rescue begins your journey on the A41 towards the pretty town of Annecy, which is built in close proximity to an enormous lake, called Lac d'Annecy which is 14.6km long.

Our driver follows the road close to the side of the lake; a very beautiful part of the journey. In daylight you will notice the mountains rise up from behind the water as we drive.

Once past Lac d'Annecy we follow main road, reaching Albertville. We travel on-wards to Moûtiers and then to Bourg Saint Maurice.

At the town of Bourg Saint Maurice we continue our ascent up through the town of Séez towards the French-Italian border. From Séez it takes about 30 minutes to complete our climb up to La Rosière ski resort, and this is the most stunning part of the drive, as we get a view up and down the huge Tarentaise valley, and over to Les Arcs.
