The journey from Geneva to Les Arcs

Journey Distance

150 km

Estimated Travel Time

2h 45m

Our friendly and uniformed Mountain Rescue driver will meet you in Terminal 1 or 2 arrivals area. We have designated meeting point for each terminal.

Your journey to Les Arcs starts 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 known as one of Europes cleanest lakes and as well as being our favourite view of the trip is pretty massive at 14.6km long, infant it takes around 20 minute to travel from on end to the other.

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. We use this route as opposed to the toll roads regularly because it's the fastest when there is holiday traffic.

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 take the recently re-routed road which takes us under the funicular, where we continue upwards towards the resorts of Les Arcs.

The trip up the mountain normally takes around 20 minutes. Don't worry our drivers are extremely conscientious chaps that have tons of snow driving experience and our vehicles are totally alpine ready.
