Getting there

Fly to Geneva
Easyjet fly to Geneva from Liverpool and Luton. British Airways also fly to Geneva from most major UK airports. Flights are often cheaper midweek.

Coach travel
Travelling to Geneva by coach is often a cheaper option than flying but you will need to travel to London. It also takes 20 hours! Try Go by Coach for fares and times.

Getting to Les Houches
From Geneva, you can travel to Chamonix using the direct bus from the airport, then by bus along the valley to Les Houches. Les Houches also has a station on the narrow-gauge railway that links with the main SNCF network at Le Fayet.

Alternative starts
We took the train from Geneva to Martigny. Swiss timetables are available on the Internet. After overnighting there, regular buses travel to Col de la Forclaz. This provides an alternative start, particularly if your trip starts on a Saturday, when many people may be leaving Les Houches.
Another alternative would be to start in Courmayeur.
