GRENOBLE AIRPORT > VAL D’ISERE
Our last bus on Saturday generally departs Grenoble Airport in the mid-late afternoon. On some Saturdays in January, early February and March, we also have an evening service to Moutiers, a town on the valley floor. You could book this later bus to Moutiers and then take either a public bus or a taxi to Val d’Isere and then book another Single with us back from Val d’Isere. If you arrive too late for any of our services, we would recommend taking a private transfer.
Our only bus on Sunday is a morning bus.
VAL D’ISERE > GRENOBLE AIRPORT
We only have morning services on Saturdays from Val d’Isere. This is because any services leaving later in the day just get snarled up in the traffic jams. If you are flying out of Grenoble Airport on an evening flight, we do have an early afternoon service from Moutiers, a town on the valley floor. The best way to get to Moutiers is to take a bus or taxi down to Bourg St Maurice, and then a train to Moutiers. This will avoid the nasty traffic between Bourg and Moutiers.
We only have one early morning Sunday service from Val d’Isere.
You may therefore be better to book 2 sets of Singles, either to / from Val d’Isere and then to / from Moutiers.
The journey between Grenoble Airport & Val d’Isere usually takes between 3 hours 35 minutes – 4 hours. Between Grenoble Airport & Bourg St Maurice the transfer takes between 3 hrs – 3 hrs 30 mins. We allow extra time on certain days & certain times of the day when we know traffic may be bad.
We pick up and drop off at the main bus station, the ‘Gare Routiere‘, in the centre of Val d’Isere and at a bus stop in La Daille. Our bus will have a sign in the window. Please ensure you are at the stop 10 minutes before departure time to allow us to pack your luggage onto the bus and that you get on the right bus – we have buses going to other Airports too!
