Journey Times & Distances from Airports to Les Houches
Transferfix compares services within the tourism sector and it allows for a selection of a service, order a service or pay for it, online and directly to the licensed transportation provider.
Shared Transfers to and from Les Houches
Shared transfers are an excellent low-cost option. You will be delivered to, or collected from your hotel, chalet or apartment, regardless of where you are staying in Les Houches. You will be sharing the vehicle with other people that will be collected from or dropped off at different locations in Les Houches.
You might have to wait for more passengers to be collected from the airport or the vehicle might travel through Les Houches to drop other tourists before you. This might increase the journey time, but always you will be notified in advance of your actual pick-up time.
On the other hand, you might just get lucky, with all passengers coming off the same flight, or flights landing within minutes of each other, and drop-offs in Les Houches might be close together, or you might be last to join the mini-bus and first to be dropped-off in Les Houches.
Either way, a bit of “give and take” is required when travelling in a shared vehicle and, provided that you keep a relaxed attitude, the shared transfer experience is a pleasant and economical way to get to your favourite ski resort. By choosing a seat in a shared vehicle you save money and leave a lower carbon trail.

About Les Houches
Les Houches is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of eastern France.
The village is located only 6 km away from the famous French ski resort, Chamonix, and it is a traditional French farming village which encompasses 152 km of ski pistes.
Les Houches assisted in the organization of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games and it is home to the world renowned physics summer school, the École de Physique des Houches.
Les Houches is the starting and finishing point of the Tour du Mont-Blanc, a 7 to 10 days walk around the base of the Mont-Blanc massif.
From the village, you can take the Prarion lift to get up to the Prarion Plateau (1,900 m), from where you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Mont-Blanc.
You can also take the Bellevue cable car from Les Houches, which will take you to the Bellevue plateau (1,800 m), from where you choose from many hiking trails in unique landscapes.
The commune is a beautiful ski resort that will definitely appease everyone, regardless of their ski competence or even if they would like to enjoy other activities besides skiing.
Skiing in Les Houches
The ski area of Les Houches extends from an altitude of 950m to 1900m and it combines long and gentle descents with fascinating views of the mighty Mont-Blanc and the Chamonix valley.
Due to its gentle and long descents and the tree-lined runs, Les Houches is the perfect ski vacation destination for beginners and intermediates.
However, besides its four green runs (learner’s level), five blue runs (beginners) and 12 red runs (intermediates), in Les Houches you will also find one international black run for advanced skiers, which is used for the annual international event, the Kandahar run, which is part of the Men’s Downhill World Cup Ski Championships. The black run will definitely be challenging enough even for the most experienced skiers.
And you shouldn’t worry about the lack of snow when in Les Houches! The village has a new network of 67 snow canons covering 19 hectares which provides artificial snow coverage, so you can fully enjoy skiing!
Les Houches has been aiming for years at becoming an ideal family resort, which they succeeded, as they have been awarded the “Familie plus Montagne” certificate by the French government.
Almost every activity is designed with the purpose of being entertaining for everyone, regardless of their age. Also, Les Houches provided excellent family discounts, for example, the “tribu” ski pass for three to five people (two adults and one to three kids), which is cheaper than the usual price.
The Spa des Granges d'en Haut has 600 square meters and it is one of the best spas in the whole Chamonix valley. This state-of-the-art spa offers an indoor swimming pool, hammam, sauna, Jacuzzi, fitness room and four individual treatment rooms for massage and other treatments.
Les Houches has another modern spa - The Spa et Beauté Montagne – which provides many services as well.
