We don’t offer direct Vaujany airport transfers, but our service is the most economical way of doing the journey from Grenoble and Lyon Airports. Vaujany is part of the Alpe d’Huez ski area, but it is accessed by a separate road which comes up from Rochetaillee, a small hamlet on the valley floor, close to Bourg d’Oisans. Ben’s Bus transfers can take you to Rochetaillee (from Grenoble Airport) or Bourg d’Oisans (from Grenoble and Lyon Airports). From there you would need to make your own travel arrangements.

VAUJANY SKI RESORT
Vaujany is a beautiful ski resort sitting at an altitude of 1250m. It is linked to Alpe d’Huez by ski lifts and forms part of the Grand Massif ski domain. The Telepherique Alpette will take you from Vaujany to an altitude of 2050m in about 7 min. From here you can access the whole ski area. Vaujany is very popular with families due to its tranquil environment and varied accommodation options. It retains the charm of a traditional French alpine resort, with most of the chalets built of wood and stone. It’s not exactly a party town, with very few bars, so it’s not an ideal place for young groups. It has great facilities for such a small resort, including an ice rink and a leisure centre with a swimming pool and Turkish bath.
The map below shows the location of the bus stop in Rochetaillee where Ben’s Bus will pick you up on its way to Grenoble Airport.

If you need to take shelter, you can pop into one of the 2 hotels there and buy a coffee. If you do take shelter, please remember to call either your taxi or Ben’s Bus so they know you are waiting there! You can see the stop in google maps here
