The journey from Geneva to Val Thorens

Our transfer driver meets you in the Geneva airport arrivals area situated in terminal 1, the Swiss side of the airport.

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 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.

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.

Plan your journey from Geneva to Val Thorens

We recommend that Saturday travellers land at Geneva airport nice and early to avoid afternoon traffic closer to the mountains.

Supermarkets on the way to Val Thorens

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 Val Thoren in The Three Valleys is Carrefour at Moûtiers.

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.
