Journey from Geneva to Courchevel

Our transfer driver meets you in the Geneva airport arrivals area situated in terminal 1, the Swiss side of Geneva 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, and once on the main road we pass the small town of Moûtiers, just after which we start to make our climb up the mountain. We pass Brides-les-Baines and wind our way up to Courchevel, hitting Courchevel 1650 and Courchevel 1850 first.

From the main road to Courchevel itself is about 30 minutes, so you can start to get excited for your ski holiday!

If you're flying in to Geneva late, why not book yourself a Geneva airport hotel? Mountain Rescue can pick you up first thing the next morning.
