By train, to Chamonix

If you wish to travel by train, prepare for an unforgettable visual show in the Alps. Such a trip may be very tiring in exchange, considering the crowd and thinner air in certain areas of the mountains. The advantage consists in the fact that there is an intercity route Paris - Annecy, whereby you may take the line Saint Gervais/Le Fayet - Vallorcine, onto which there is a stop in Chamonix Mont Blanc railway station. Find out more information here (French Train Schedule at SNCF.com ).

From Paris, you can take the TGV fast trains to: Annecy, Lyon, Bellegarde, Chambéry and Aix Les Bains, Saint Gervais Les Bains and Le Fayet.

Once you have arrived in one of these stations from Paris, the transfer is made with TER – Train Express Regional towards Saint Gervais Les Bains – Le Fayet, just 20 km away from Chamonix.

The Mont-Blanc Express services the Chamonix Valley from Saint Gervais les Bains to Vallorcine at the Swiss border.

By car

The personal vehicle is a viable alternative to reach Chamonix, the costs of such a trip being relatively small, especially if you choose to travel in the company of some friends. Yet this kind of trip includes some risks such as the unfavorable weather conditions or crowded roads in the weekend, which may cause unwanted delays. Thus, it would be advisable to equip your car in due time with anti-skid chains, to check whether your insurances are up-to-date and to have the money or valid card to pay the many road taxes you shall in your way. The advantage of the car trip is that it offers flexibility but also the chance to carry more luggage with you.
