On average, transfers from Geneva to La Clusaz will take around 1 hour 20 minutes, but there can be significant changes depending on the time you will be travelling.
La Clusaz is a popular ski resort that is quite busy. That's why travelling at peak times, you can expect to encounter some traffic jams and waiting. We will always do everything possible to ensure you are feeling comfortable for the duration of your transfer.
We highly advise our clients to travel in midweek days to cut down on your trip time and guarantee yourself more time on the slopes.
The standard route from Geneva to La Clusaz will usually take via the way heading over to Gorges du Borne/Tour du Bargy, bordering Bonneville. This way will be the shorter one. But, we recommend you to choose another route in case of unfavourable weather conditions.
An alternative route will be a journey aside Annecy, before reaching lake Annecy (destination Annecy-Nord/Annecy-le-Vieux/Aéroport Meythet). If the snow forecast is not good enough, travel this route will be more reasonable.
You don’t have to go directly to your point of destination.
If you want to make a stop at any stage to stretch your legs, we will gladly take this and make a pause during your trip.
There are plenty of supermarkets en-route to La Clusaz. You can pick up your mostly needed ski holiday essentials (and maybe some tasty snacks for the journey) before you get to the ski resort. Why not?
Besides, you may find some products bought on the way to La Clusaz are cheaper than those ones you would find at the resort.
From key sights to spectacular landscapes there may be hidden something you should necessarily discover. So, get your camera out and start snapping. Keep your eyes wide open for the amazing beauty scenery of the French Alps.

It’s important to remember that your journey from Geneva to La Clusaz will take you to more altitude and may lead to some potential complications.
Geneva airport lies at an altitude of 430m, the village of La Clusaz - at 1100m.
During this journey, some passengers might have a mild discomfort. Nausea, headaches and dizziness can be symptoms of air pressure change. Little kids are especially prone to feel sick.
When the route combines this air pressure change with steep, serpentine roads, the trip can be difficult for some people. You can ask your driver to lower the temperature of the vehicle if needed to help you feel more comfortable.
But the beautiful scenery can be the perfect medicine for you in these moments of malaise - just look out the window!
