Our vehicles generally take the fastest and most direct route, via the A41 motorway and then the N90 national road through Annecy. The road between Moutiers and Bourg St Maurice (where we may ask you to change buses) can be subject to heavy traffic, especially between 8am – 12 noon. You should try to avoid travelling at these times, especially during the French school holidays. The last stretch of the journey is the D902 mountain road up to Tignes.
