Travel to Chamonix

Chalet La Forêt can reached by driving, train or flying (about an hour’s drive from Geneva airport) Looking for information about the chalet’s location in Chamonix? That’s here.

Flying

It’s a very short flight (1 hr 15min – 1 hr 25min) from the UK to Geneva. Plenty of airlines ply this route, many of them from the small and efficient London City Airport.
Once at Geneva, you are just 100 km from the chalet, via (in approximate order of convenience and expense) hire car, transfer, bus, or rail. More about flying

Driving

The route from Calais takes approximately eight hours and has many advantages, especially for larger groups- cheaper, less likely to be disrupted, no concerns about luggage. More on our Driving page

Train

You can also take the Eurostar to Chamonix from London. Although this is a long journey, it’s very enjoyable. You can go direct to Chamonix but paradoxically it can be better to go to Geneva via Lille and then get a transfer from Geneva. Seat61 is an excellent site with lots of good information on how to do this. I recommend Loco2 for booking rather than the Eurostar site.
