The drive from Geneva Airport to Samoens ski resort is averagely taking 1 hour 30 minutes on good road and weather conditions. As it’s so often possible to get stuck into traffic on ski resort peak season – around the festive season, school holiday and a half term, it would be good to count with some delays. As Samoens is highly favoured by the locals, travelling on weekend can result in getting into intense traffic and congestions.
Based on our noteworthy experience we suggest you choose travelling on midweek. That’ll guarantee you more time on the slopes and better transfer deals.
Preferable journey route should take you via A40 motorway that’s going through Archamps- Etrembieres- Bonneville- Cluses after that road to be taken is D902, that’ll bring you to road D4 through La Riviere Enverse to Samoens itself. As the motorway A40 (Bonneville-Cluses) is an often choice for travellers to reach their vacation resorts, which are many in the area, this road section can get very congested on weekends.
In case of intense traffic, after reaching Entrembieres the route could be turned to Fillinges going through Saint Jeoire- Taninges- Verchaix and then reaching Samoens.
Although if there would be an emergency situation due to the road conditions on two previous mentioned routes, the third – more time-consuming route may be chosen. In cases like that the journey should be made towards north going on the side of the Lake Geneva until Thonon les Bains and then head down through La Vernaz- Morzine- Les Gets- Taninges, after following the D4 road to Samoens.
Having a possibility to take various routes the one thing we surely can promise is amazing views on the surroundings while on the journey. That can really make you enjoy the transfer and disconnect from all the daily responsibilities.
