Journey Times & Distances from Airports to Les Gets
A Shared Transfer from Geneva Airport to Les Gets
Before the outbound journey from Geneva Airport (GVA) to Les Gets begins, you might have to wait for more passengers to arrive on different flights, but that might not be enough people to fill the vehicle.
It is quite common, particularly in the low season for the minibus to depart Geneva Airport with only 4 or 5 passengers.
Once you are on your way, there should be no stops until you arrive in Les Gets, since Les Gets is the first resort in the Portes du Soleil ski area, when coming from Geneva Aiport.
In Les Gets, other passengers might be dropped-off before you reach your accommodation. Each drop-off causes a small delay, and if you are the last person to be dropped off at your accommodation in Les Gets, there might be a delay of 15-20 minutes.
Or, there are equal chances that you might get lucky and be among the first ones to be dropped-off in Les Gets.
The Journey from Les Gets to Geneva Airport
The transfer company will always notify you of the pick-up time from your accommodation or other agreed pick-up location in the resort.
Be in that place at the appointed time. If you are not there, the driver will not wait, as to do so, might compromise the other passengers. No-one wants to risk missing their flight, because someone else is not at their agreed pick-up point on-time.
As soon as all passengers from Les Gets are picked-up, the journey to Geneva Airport begins. There should be no more stops before the Geneva Airport, as Les Gets is the last resort from the Portes du Soleil ski domain when traveling towards Geneva Airport. Thus, chances are that when you get into the minibus in Les Gets, there will already be people who were picked-up from Avoriaz or Morzine.

Online, there are resources that allow the VTC to check that flights are departing on time. It is likely that your VTC will have as much information as you about any delays. However, on the booking confirmation form, you will be provided with their mobile number, so you can call for reassurance. If the VTC is not able to transport you in a later vehicle departure, by the time your flight lands, it is likely that the VTC will have arranged for your transportation with another VTC, for the same price that you have paid already.

About Les Gets
Les Gets is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France.
Les Gets has its origins in the 11th century and its name is derived from the local dialect words "gitte" or "giette" which mean the corridors used to send logs rapidly down the hillside.
Les Gets is an excellent Alpine resort which gives out a very French vibe, partially because of the alluring food and wine shops found in its centre.
Despite its relatively low altitude (1172m), Les Gets is well known for its exceptional snow record every year.
Les Gets is a renowned family-friendly resort that offers many engaging activities besides skiing, which is why the resort is equally popular during the summer season.
Moreover, the resort is the owner of the "Familie Plus Montagne" label, which means that the children's needs are carefully considered. As an example, Les Gets hosts a themed ski area for children.
Another great thing about Les Gets is that while it offers excellent slopes, it tends to be less busy than most French ski resorts.
Skiing in Les Gets
Les Gets, which shares its ski pistes with Morzine, offers 120 km of mostly beginner and intermediate ski slopes, serviced by 47 ski lifts.
In Les Gets you will find very convenient nursery slopes which will keep the kids busy and happy while you can enjoy the excellent red slopes that the village has to offer.
For the most advanced skiers or for those who think that 120 km of slopes are not enough, Les Gets is part of the Portes du Soleil - one of the widest ski domain in the world with more than 650 km of slopes.
As one of the largest ski area in the world, Les Portes du Soleil offers 34 green pistes, 119 blue pistes, 101 red pistes and 32 black pistes, serviced by 200 ski lifts.
Les Gets is a dream for mixed-ability groups. While the local slopes are very beginner-friendly, the most experienced of the group can ski to Switzerland and back in one day or head for the snow-parks of Avoriaz with the Portes du Soleil ski pass.
Furthermore, the resort has very good ski schools, some of which have also won awards.
While Les Gets has been recognized and prized as a very family-friendly ski resort, it still has a lively nightlife.
As a mid-sized ski resort, there are many pubs and bars where one can warm-up and relax after a snowy day.
In the summer, there are many activities in Les Gets, from discos to the "Pot de Bienvenue" (a welcome drink) on a Monday evening.
Live bands often play on the stage in the centre of the town.
The outdoor ice rink of Les Gets is located right in the heart of the village and it is definitely a favourite among Les Gets tourists.
The ice rink also offers a toboggan rental for kids and the possibility to organize an ice party.
Mechanical Music Museum
The Museum hosts an impressive number of over 750 mechanical musical instruments.
The Museum has a rich history as it has been opened in 1988. However, it has recently doubled its collection and the tour content has been redesigned.
