Travelling to Grand Massif
Le Grand Massif is one of the most accessible ski resorts in the Alps. Situated in the Northern Alps, Le Grand Massif is just a 70 minute flight from southern UK airports, and the airport transfer from Geneva is just 50 minutes. It is also one of the shortest trips by both train and car from the UK, as Le Grand Massif ski area is located further north than most of the major alpine ski resorts.
Geneva Airport Transfers
We can organise return Geneva airport transfers for your group taking you directly to and from your catered chalet. There is no additional cost for this service – guests normally find that it is easier for us to organise them for their group. We can also be paid in pounds sterling that will help you avoid any foreign exchange fees.
