Best way to get to Chamonix
If you are travelling from outside of France, then flying into Geneva is the quickest way to get to Chamonix and then hiring a car from the airport is the quickest way to get to here after that.
Geneva has a great choice of airlines offering good value on flights all year round.
You can also get the Eurostar or fast TGV trains to Paris or Lyon and then connect on regional trains onto Saint Gervais Les Bains, from where you can pick up the Mont Blanc Express Train into Chamonix.
Eurostar operate a year round service to Lyon, from where you can pick up connecting SNCF trains to St Gervais & then onto the iconic Mont Blanc Express train which will bring you up into the Chamonix Valley.
Alternatively you can take the Eurostar to Annecy and either hire a car from there, book a transfer or take a bus for the final leg of the journey.
