The most direct route from Geneva to Les Arcs 1950, 2000 will usually take you via Annecy (along Lake Annecy) and Albertville, then up to an impressive 32km climb up the mountain road Bourg St Maurice, past the Chevril dam and along the lake to arrive at the area known as La Daille. This route is shorter than motorway route, which is 40km longer. Also consider the traffic you will have to encounter during the weekends between Moutiers un Bourg St.Maurice. If there are bad weather and snow, just plan extra time for your transfer, some small routes can be in bad conditions. Ask the driver if he knows how to bypass that route. Anyway, this journey is the shortest, with less traffic and magnificent views.
An alternative route you can use will take you to the motorway via Chambery. This journey is longer, also be aware of major traffic during the weekends. Always ask the driver about the best possible route.
A third option would be to journey via La Clusaz / Megeve. This is a much longer drive so should only be used as an emergency if all other options are closed. We don’t recommend it. The road goes thru mountains and that is not the best option.
You don’t have to be in a hurry and go directly to your destination. If you’d like to stop at any stage to stretch your legs, we will happily accommodate this.
