The Journey from Geneva to Sainte Foy

Journey Distance

165 km

Estimated Travel Time

2h 35m

One of our smart and helpful driving team will meet you you from your flight at Geneva Airport. If you are landing in terminal 1 then follow signs through to the Swiss side. Here we have a designated meeting point as we do for terminal 2.

We follow the A41 towards Annecy, then drive around the proximity of Lac d'Annecy (Annecy Lake). This is a very picturesque part of the journey, if you are lucky enough to be travelling in the day time. The mountains rise up from behind the lake as we drive, so you will start to feel that you are close to the Alps.

After Annecy we pass the city of Albertville on the motorway. Then the small towns of Moûtiers and Aime. The route then takes you through Bourg Sainte Maurice and out the other side on the D1090.

Driving through Seez, a small town close to La Rosiere, we then start to head in the direction of Tignes and Val dI’sere, arriving at the village of Sainte Foy Tarentaise after about 8km.

Just after here we turn off to a steep, but very pretty, tree lined road that brings us out by the ski station of Sainte Foy.

Plan your journey from Geneva airport to Sainte Foy

We recommend landing in Geneva early morning if travelling on a Saturday. This helps to avoid any traffic build up that usually occurs later in the day.

Supermarkets on the way to Sainte Foy

Supermarket stops can and must be booked in advance - a great way to arrive prepared at your accommodation. Our favoured shop stop on route to Sainte Foy is Super U at Bourg St Maurice. You can even pre order your shopping and pick it up on the day.

Return journey from Sainte Foy to Geneva airport

Mountain Rescue will advise of your transfer time; we like to leave about 4 hours 30 minutes before your flight time, but this is subject to change if the weather comes in or traffic is expected. When booking we pass over an estimated pick up time for the return journey, this is confirmed by email and text at 16:00pm the day before you travel. Our Alps office is available 24/7 if you wish to discuss anything at all. Our objective is to get you and your group to the airport in good time.
