Private transfers from Geneva Airport
Private transfers from Geneva to Les Arcs can be so much more comfortable than waiting for a bus, train or a shared journey. Our private transfer buses will be at Geneva airport waiting for you when your plane has landed, ready to take you to your accommodation in Les Arcs.
We check impending flight arrival times and try our best to be there, even if you are early.
With a private transfer you and your group can sit back and relax, knowing you are in the safe hands of 1st Lifts transfer drivers. Even catching up with some shut eye on the way!
Private transfers are really cost effective if there are up to 8 of you in the group. There are 8 available seats in each of our modern, comfortable vans. We can take groups of adults, or families including children.
Geneva airport transfers with children
When you book with us we always ask the ages of the group. That way are well prepared with child seats for the transfer from Geneva.
Booster seats and baby seats are available on request.
Geneva to Les Arcs: the route
Usually we take the main toll road from Geneva to Chambery, called the A41. Then we join the A43, leading to the A430 towards Albertville. At Albertville we join the N90, where we will start to drive up the Tarentaise valley and you can admire the mountains spotting Mont Blanc and getting really excited for your ski or bike holiday!
If there is a problem on any of the main roads, we have two alternatives to Albertville: the A40 or D1508. Although we will avoid going through towns if we can help it, as we want to get you to your destination as soon as possible.
We drop you as close to your accommodation as we can get, making your journey so much easier with all that gear.
Geneva to Les Arcs transfers, supermarket stop
We know of a great place on the way to Les Arcs to pick up some croissants, a Quiche Lorraine, freshly cooked pizza and have a cup of coffee if you are feeling a bit peckish after your flight.
By prearrangement we can also take you to SuperU in Albertville or the new E.Leclerc supermarche now situated near Moutier. It’s a bit closer to home and a pretty good price range.
Geneva to Les Arcs in snow
The roads are very well cleared when there is snow fall, even the ones leading right up to the mountain resorts, but we can never predict the weather!
We all hope for lots of snow, so 1st Lifts is prepared.
Each driver is trained to put on snow chains in even the worst conditions – even in the dark.
We carry chains in each vehicle and we know when it is necessary to use them to bring your group to Les Arcs safely.
Your own playlist on the way to Les Arcs
If you have a playlist you would like to put on during your journey let us know! We’d love to hear it.
Video your journey singing to your favourite songs and upload it to the 1st Lifts Facebook page.
Make sure you tag your friends and family!
“The Les Arcs Train Station”
The train station in Bourg saint Maurice is often mistakenly called the Les Arcs train station, we suppose because it is the main route into Les Arcs from airports, from Paris and other major cities.
The Les Arcs train station is actually in the centre of a city called Bourg saint Maurice, which is at 840 metres and there is no skiing there! Although you can access the ski hill by the funicular, which whisks you up to Arc 1600. The Bourg saint Maurice funicular is a short walk from the “Les Arcs Train Station”, accessible with bags as you can cross a bridge over the train line.
1st Lifts can be booked to take you from Bourg st Maurice to one of the Les Arcs resorts: Arc 1600, Arc 1800 or Arc 1950.
