The journey from Geneva to Val Thorens

Journey Distance

160 km

Estimated Travel Time

2h 35m

Your friendly and helpful driver will meet you in the arrivals area on the Swiss side of the airport. You will fly into either Terminal 1 or 2 we have pre arranged meeting points for both terminals.

Once you are in the vehicle you head off in the direction of France. You will  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 town of Moûtiers. Moûtiers is the town situated at the break off point for two main routes heading up into The Three Valleys ski area, one road for Les Menuires and Val Thorens,  the other for Méribel and Courchevel.

From here  we climb upwards for another 40 km, so you have plenty of time to get excited and enjoy the twists of this extraordinarily long mountain road. Our driver will have the GPS location of your accommodation (or know it) and will take you directly to the door and help you unpack the van. and see you to your location.

Have a great trip 🙂 See you on the return!

When you book you get an estimated pick up time but we like to confirm just the night before incase of changes in weather. We send you an email and SMS at 16:00 along with the drivers name and number. Val Thorens to Geneva takes around 2.5 hours but can be a bit longer with traffic so expect a pick up time of around 4.5 to 5 hour prior to travel at the weekend. Weekdays it will be bit less.

Resorts close to Val Thorens

Val Thorens is part of The Three Valleys, a huge ski area. Connected to Méribel and the villages of Les Menuires & Reberty you shouldn't run out of ski time, nor restaurants.

However visiting another ski area for a day can't hurt.

La Plagne is only 1 hour 30 minutes from Val Thorens. Connected by a huge cable car across the valley, to Peisey-Vallandry and Les Arcs, this area is collectively known as Paradiski. And is well worth a visit.
