The most convenient and quickest way to travel to the mountains. Flying to the Alps

Since the Wright brothers first took their wooden plane for a test drive people have been wanting to fly everywhere, and why not! Flying to the Alps is still the most convenient way to get to the snow in France. There are two possible airports you can travel to, each with their pros and cons.

Certainly the most convenient for the Three Valleys is Chambéry airport, with just a 90 minute drive or transfer to the resort. There are four modes of transport you can take from Chambéry to get you to your accommodation. First, all the major car hire companies have operations in the airport, making hiring a car a doddle. Second, you can arrange (or may have arranged for you on a package holiday) your transfer to resort by coach. Third, you can hire a taxi – though for your wallet’s sake we don’t recommend this choice. Finally, there is the option of a private or shared helicopter transfer (see more below).

If you can’t fly to Chambéry then your next closest options are Grenoble (2 hours), Lyon (2 hours) or Geneva (3 hours). Geneva does have excellent bus/shuttle links to Meribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens. Lyon St-Exupery has fewer links to resorts, but the journey in a hire car is a good deal easier and quicker than from Geneva.

TOP TIP
If travelling to Geneva remember that there are two sides to the airport, the Swiss side and the French side. The airport also isn’t the clearest sign-posted in the world so you may need your wits about you when walking through, to make sure you exit the airport – and perhaps meet your transfer pickup – on the correct side.

TOP TIP FOR DRIVERS
If you have hired a car in advance, be sure your know which side you’re picking it up from. There are car hire areas on both the French and Swiss sides. You will also want to check your route through Geneva as it can be very busy and a bit of a maze if negotiating the route out of the city for the first time.

Or then again, the stylish option is to arrive by helicopter

If you want to avoid the traffic of a normal transfer, or maybe just like to travel in style – or faster – then a private or shared helicopter transfer is always an option. There are handful of helicopter companies that can help you, offering single- or twin-engined helicopter transfers to Meribel from Chambéry, Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble. Flight times vary, but as a guide, a road trip from Chambéry that would take 90 minutes can be cut to just 25 minutes in a helicopter. Contact Whitetracks Helicopters for more details.
