Plan your Visit

Getting there by plane and train

There are many ways to reach Verbier. You could fly to Geneva airport and then drive to Verbier (the snow conditions in January may result in a 2.5 hours transfer by car).

The most inspiring way to travel to Verbier however is to take the train from Geneva airport to Le Chable (2.5 hours), which takes you along Lake Geneva with beautiful mountains in the background. From Le Chable you then take the gondola up to Verbier (15 minutes).

From Geneva airport you could travel by train (this is the nicest option!), shared bus or taxi:

Tesla Transfers (private) 
May Taxi (private)  
Alpine Express (shared)  
Alpy Bus (shared) 

Alternatively, you could fly to Milan or Zürich and take the train to le Chable from there (both approx 3,5 hours).
