It’s important to know that your journey from Grenoble to Tignes will take you to a very high altitude. This may present problems to some visitors.
Grenoble airport sits at almost 400m above the sea level, while the main village of Tignes is at 2100m. This change in altitude can give passengers some mild discomfort, such as nausea, headaches and dizziness, which are symptoms from the change in air pressure.
Young children tend to be more prone to these symptoms.
The combination of steep, serpentine roads and the change in air pressure can make the journey difficult for some passengers. If necessary, ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable.
Tignes is situated at a very high altitude, at around 2100m, making it one of the best of its kind in Europe.
This makes it the ideal location for impressively high density snowfall.
An added benefit to the high altitude, the skiing season is one of the longest you’ll find in Europe.
This allows for glacier skiing during the summer, making for an exciting off-season break!
Tignes is part of one of the most beautiful ski areas in the world and is made up of 5 villages: Val Claret, Tignes le Lac, Le Lavachet, Tignes les Boisses and Tignes les Brevieres. Your ski pass will give you access to around 300km of pistes, connected through 78 ski lifts. The resort itself offers something for everything, with enough ski area to account for all different ages and skill levels.
Located approximately 45km away from the city centre, Grenoble Airport sits directly at the gateway to the Alps.

When calculating fares, we start with our standard price and then reduce this based on the factors above. This dynamic approach means we only reduce our prices and never increase them
Pricing is also affected by vehicle availability, transfer schedule, vehicle utilisation and additional costs such as road tolls and parking charges.
If you want to travel with ease, spend less time stuck in traffic, and lower your costs up to 60%m then we strongly advise you to travel during the midweek.
Also, more discounts are available for travelling off-season and off-peak. Travelling during the off-peak season means cheaper flights, cheaper hotels, cheaper food and less crowds!
