The journey from Geneva to Les Arcs

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 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.
