The fastest route from Geneva airport to La Plagne travels through Annecy, Aix les Bains and Albertville.
Another option is to avoid Aix les Bains altogether if there are traffic jams in the area.
In the event of serious congestion on the other routes, our drivers could take you via Neydens and Saint Gervais les Bains to avoid long waits in the car.
Albertville tends to experience more traffic at peak times as it connects all drivers to La Plagne and other resorts in the area.
Our experienced drivers will take all factors into consideration when planning your transfer to ensure you have the safest, most efficient journey possible.
Here at Alps2Alps we take your comfort seriously. No matter how pleasant the ride, long car journeys can be tiring. If you want to take a break and stretch your legs, our drivers will be more than happy to accommodate.
Your journey to the resort could also be a good opportunity to pick up some supplies on the way. The supermarkets along the journey are often cheaper than those at the resorts and a few snacks always go down well with hungry little mouths!
You could even pick up your rental skis on the way so you can hit the slopes as soon as you arrive! (More about our ski rental offerings later)
Or simply take this opportunity for some well- earned rest and watch the beautiful alpine scenery float past your window. Disconnect from your day-to-day life and relax.
Geneva airport sits at 430m, while the resorts of La Plagne range from 1,800 to 2,100 metres above sea level. This sudden change in air pressure can feel unpleasant for some.
Although high altitude is great for skiers, it can cause mild discomfort until you get used to it. Symptoms can include nausea, dizziness, weakness and headaches.
Having light refreshments on hand can help, especially when travelling with children.
Don’t hesitate to ask our friendly drivers if you want to stop for some fresh air or change the temperature in the vehicle to make yourself more comfortable.
La Plagne is part of the vast Paradiski ski area, the second largest in the world! This means there’s a variety of pistes on offer for all abilities.
Beginners can test the ropes in the Les Coches area, and there are excellent black runs for intermediates to explore.
La Plagne is made up of 11 separate villages, all with easy access to the slopes, giving you almost endless accommodation options.
Here are some of the contenders:
The closest airport to La Plagne is Chambéry. However, Geneva international airport is the hottest airport for skiers due to the sheer quantity of flights and great deals to European ski destinations available.
Because of this great location, peak season draws hordes of skiers to the airport. Make sure you book your ski transfer in advance to avoid any unnecessary waiting.
