Shared Transfers to and from Val-d'Isère

A shared transfer is an economical way of travelling between Val-d'Isère and the airport. You will be sharing the vehicle with other passengers.

When travelling from Val-d'Isère to the airport, the driver will pick you up from your accommodation. Along the way, the driver might have to make a few stops, to pick up other passengers after you.

At the airport, your drivers will pick you up at the Arrivals Hall. You might have to wait for other passengers to arrive before departing for Val-d'Isère.

Either way, a shared transfer requires a considerate and respectful attitude from all passengers.

 

The Journey from Val-d'Isère 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.

You must remember to always be in that place at the appointed time. If you are not there, the driver cannot wait for you, as if he does wait, the journeys of other passengers might be compromised. The driver cannot risk other passengers to miss their flights because one passenger is late.

As soon as all passengers from Val-d'Isère are picked-up, the journey to Geneva Airport begins. Along the way, the driver might stop to pick-up other passengers, from Tignes or La Plagne. However, this tends to happen during off-season, when demand is low.

If you travel during peak season, there is a reasonable possibility that all seats will be occupied when leaving Val-d'Isère, and there will be no more stops until the Geneva Airport.

 

The Journey from Geneva Airport to Val-d'Isère

On arrival at Geneva Airport, you will have to go to the desks, found when leaving the main exit out of the Arrival building. The desks are occupied by representatives of the transfer companies.

However, you might not even have to make it to the desks, your driver might be waiting for you, after you pass through customs and walk or ride into the Arrivals Hall.

The driver will give you all the information you need to know about your upcoming journey, e.g. if there is a need to wait for more passengers arriving from different flights, etc.

If there is a short delay while waiting for other passengers and you would like to grab a bite or do some shopping, please ask your driver if it is okay to do so. There is a reasonable possibility that the delay is just a few minutes, in which case it is better to just stay put.

If the driver approves of you taking a stroll, please ask him in how minutes you should be back. 

Always follow your driver's advice, as for them to go hunting for a passenger in the airport is really inconvenient.

Before reaching Val-d'Isère, the driver might need to make a few stops, in Tignes or other resort along the way. This happens more when demand is low, but since Val-d'Isère is a very popular resort, it is possible that all all passengers travel to Val-d'Isère.

 

Ethics of a Shared Transfer to or from Val-d'Isère

Be Prepared

At 1850m (6,000 feet) Val d'Isère is among the highest resorts in Europe.

When travelling to or from a high-alpine resort, there might be some unforeseen changes, which depend on matters outside for everyone's control, and in unusual circumstances. 

You might have to adapt. If that does happen, listen to your driver and please be compliant.

About Val-d'Isère

Val d'Isère is a commune of the Tarentaise Valley, and one of the highest ski resorts in Europe.

The resort starts at 1,850m (6,000 feet) altitude, but the skiing is above that altitude, with top slopes found at an altitude of nearly 3,400m (11,154 ft), beneath the summit of the Pointe du Montet. 

Val d'Isère has not always been an attractive, sophisticated winter town.

Developed around a fine 17th-century church, the town began its rejuvenation after the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics, when Val d'Isère's Face de Bellevarde hosted the men's downhill, Super G and giant slalom events. Since then, Val d'Isère hosts World Cup alpine events regularly.

Val d'Isère has an interesting policy of leaving the streets covered in snow, which makes the town even more charming & reduces the salt pollution of the Isère river.

In Val d'Isère, accommodation is primarily found in lovely wooden chalets, which are located at an ideal distance from the town's centre - far enough to ensure peaceful nights, yet within 5-10 minutes walking distance. 

In 2017, the town took up an ambitious £170 million (€193 million), 5-years, building project to redevelop the centre of the resort. This project includes two new hotels and a new piste with an underground moving walkway linking the centre of town with the lifts.

A very popular resort in the Alps, Val d'Isère pleases all skiers, regardless of their skiing level. Besides skiing, this lively little town offers a great selection of fine dining and a wide range of both winter & summer activities.

Moreover, Val d'Isère has been for a long time a favourite ski resort for British skiers, so there is no language barrier. From waiters to ski instructors, everyone speaks English!

Skiing in Val d'Isère

Together with neighbouring Tignes, Val d'Isère forms the "Espace Killy" ski domain, which offers 300 km (186 miles) of slopes, serviced by 80 lifts.

Espace Killy is perfect for beginners, with 22 green runs & 61 blues. But if you are an experienced skier, this ski area might also be ideal for you, with 46 red slopes, 25 challenging blacks, plus 44 km of off-piste skiing.

Named in the honour of the famous skier Jean-Claude Killy, the ski domain has one interesting particularity. The pistes of Val d'Isère and Tignes are naturally linked, so there is no need for long connecting trails or lifts, as it happens in other ski domains.

Moreover, Espace Killy has one of the best and most modern lift systems in the world, the vast majority of the lifts being high speed.

As for Val d'Isère itself, all three ski areas, Bellvarde, Solaise and Le Fornet, have wide cruising blue runs higher up and more challenging runs for strong skiers lower down.

Beginners will be pleased to find out that there are easy runs at the top of Solaise and Bellevarde. Moreover, there is a great choice of ski schools that offer both private and group lessons, taught by English speaking instructors.

Val d'Isère gets very reliable snow every year, so it is also the home of a number of ski and snowboard events each year, such as the Critérium de la Première Neige, a Federation Internationale de Ski (FIS) competition in mid-December that has been running since 1955.

Leisure Centre

Opened in December 2009, the Leisure Centre offers a great range of entertaining activity during rainy days or simply for people who are not hooked on skiing.

The Leisure Centre offers: 

  • swimming pools;
  • squash;
  • cardio training;
  • a sports hall;
  • climbing wall;
  • fitness classes;
  • jacuzzi, steam & sauna facilities.

Après-Ski

Val d’Isere is known for its party atmosphere, and a mandatory place to go is La Folie Douce. There, you will find the original alpine party bar, table dancing, cabaret shows and live music.

Cocorico is a relatively new venue, which has hugely gain in popularity. With happy-hour, live music and a DJ every afternoon from 2 pm to 8 pm, Cocorico is a must for everyone who enjoys a night out.

Petit Danois is great for burgers & a game of pool, Blue Note for a relaxing Jazz Vibe, and there are many more.

Ice Driving

The BMW sponsored ice driving circuit is excellent for every passionate driver. 

You will be sliding around an icy course in a rear-wheel-drive BMW! 

And if that does not appeal to you, right next door there is the ice karting circuit, where you can race your friends around an ice track on go-karts.
