Welcome to Europe's capital of extreme sports. One of the top world-class ski resorts, in the middle of the mountain range of Mont-Blanc. If you are a lover of outdoor sports, Chamonix is the perfect place for you. You can do skiing, hiking, or sightseeing. Explore the wonders and incredible nature riding the famous Aiguille du Midi cable car up to the highest point of Europe.
Enjoy a mix of Alpine and modern architecture, Baroque church, old-fashioned chalets, and Belle Epoque hotels. There is also a wide range of options for leisure, from cafés and brasseries to boutiques and fancy shops. Below we have compiled information on how to get here from Geneva airport.
Are you looking for a picturesque train trip through the mountain ranges? To enjoy the scenery, but also to save a buck, you can choose between 2 companies: Swiss Railways (SBB) or Léman Express. Your train journey will take between three and four hours, and you will have to connect via Cornavin station in Geneva.
Traveling by bus is usually the cheapest option, making it a good choice if you're traveling on a low budget. However, it is less comfortable and more time-consuming. It can take you anywhere from 3 up to 20 hours to reach Chamonix.
And don't forget, buses aren't the most comfortable places to sleep on. Just think of the lack of legroom space! You will be quite exhausted when you reach the pistes. For more information on schedules and prices, visit transalis.fr
