Transfers to Tignes - Val Claret, Le Lac, Lavachet, Les Boisses, Les Brevieres & UCPA

Tignes Ski-LiftWith access to over 300km of exceptional ski runs within the Espace Killy; Tignes comprises of five interconnected villages at varying altitudes which are well connected by both bus and piste.

Val Claret sits at 2100m and the snow park and half-pipe close to the town have previously played host to the Winter X-Games, British Championships, and Navy Ski Championships. Le Lac is generally considered to be the main village of Tignes centred around the lake area.  Hosting plenty of bars and restaurants, Le Lac offers much of the apres-ski entertainment in town. Lower in the valley and below the impressive dam sits the village of Les Brevieres, which generally has a quieter, more traditional atmosphere perfect for families.

Tignes is a high-altitude resort with one of the best snow records in Europe and the Espace Killy is regarded as one of the best ski areas in the world for both easily connected pistes, as well as lift accessed off-piste runs. The 3000m Grande Motte glacier also offers year-round skiing, and is easily accessed by the underground funicular train in just seven minutes.

There is also a sports centre with swimming pool, ice-skating available on the lake, bowling, as well as dog-sledding and ice-diving for those who want to try some alternative winter activities.

Getting to Tignes

With its blend of amazing skiing, and relatively cheap accommodation, Tignes is visited by thousands of skiers & snowboarders every week of the winter season. Unfortunately, it also has one of the longest airport to ski resort transfers out there. Tignes' location at the end of the Tarentaise Valley means travelling there does take some time - it's definitely worth it in the end though.

Despite the long distance, Tignes' popularity means there are plenty of travel options during the ski season. The most popular method of travel for international holidaymakers will be to fly in to one of the four regional airports and take a private taxi or shared bus the rest of the way.

Chambery airport is the closest to Tignes, but it is also the smallest airport in the region. Chambery has moved towards taking more private and package holiday company flights recently, but it is still possible to find seats on limited weekend flights. 

Grenoble and Lyon airports are similar distances away from Tignes and offer a fairly similar service. They are big enough to accommodate a number of budget and international flights - particularly on weekends. Both are located close to highways and so offer a relatively quick transfer time to Tignes despite being over 200km away.

The biggest transport hub in the area is Geneva airport. Despite being just over the border in Switzerland, Geneva is the most popular choice for people going to Tignes due to its size. This means all low-cost airlines fly here and there are regular flights to Europe and the rest of the world.

Shared Transfers to Tignes

Shared transfers to & from Tignes ski resort are the cheapest method of travel for individuals and smaller groups of travellers. Regular scheduled buses combine skiers & snowboarders from multiple flights who are staying in Tignes.

With shared transfers there can be a little waiting time, and drop-offs around Tignes are most likely to be at central locations rather than your individual accommodation. However, paying a per-person cost just for the seat you use means shared transfers are one of the cheapest methods of getting from the airport to Tignes. 

On Saturdays & Sundays there are regular shared transfer services between the four main airports in the area and Tignes ski resort. On weekdays the shared transfer timetables are much more minimal due to the reduced number of passengers arriving and departing. It is still possible to find a shared transfer service to Tignes mid-week, but it may involve a little more planning in terms of flight times.

Shared transfer buses have multiple stops around Tignes. Bus stops at Tignes Les Brevieres, Tignes Le Lac and Tignes Val Claret (also for Tignes UCPA) mean it is possible to get close to your hotel or chalet wherever you are staying.
