As far as household names go in the world of ski resorts, there aren’t many more popular or famous than Chamonix. This is a frankly gorgeous part of Europe that sees thousands pouring in and out every week to make the most of the stunning natural wonders on offer. Needless to say, those windy-little mountain roads don’t always accommodate everyone at the same time, so you’ll need a little help to make sure you don’t waste half of your trip trying to get in and out in the first place. On this page, we offer advice on all the closest airports to Chamonix and the fastest resort transfer times to get you to the action pronto. So if you’d rather spend your time on the slopes as opposed to looking at them through a bus window, read on!
Chamonix is peaceful yet exciting, traditional yet modern and upper-class yet hugely laid back. Or in other words, it’s the total package that ticks all boxes and then some. In terms of skiing, Chamonix has all bases covered like nowhere else on Earth, with runs ranging from the best possible nursery slopes for beginners to what is officially the best vertical drop served by a ski lift anywhere in the world. And as far as après-ski goes, this is a place that goes way beyond its reputation to offer so much more than you could possibly imagine. Chamonix is impossible to sum up in just a short passage, but suffice to say whatever you’re looking for is waiting for you there!
Head to Chamonix via Geneva or Sion and the good news is you’re only about an hour away from the very heart of the resort. As such, you can easily get in and out when you have only a few days to spare, or even just a weekend. With a bit more time on your side though, you can check out flight deals to and from about a dozen major airports all within easy reach of Chamonix and perhaps save yourself a packet.
Please bear in mind that all transfer times are offered as estimates only – the weather and any ensuing traffic conditions can change the following times dramatically:
Public transport links with Chamonix are of course plentiful and readily available. However, it is impossible to get in and out of the resort faster, safer, cheaper and more comfortably than with an arranged Chamonix resort transfer service directly from your arrival airport.
