As detailed in our previous blog, the Tunnel du Chambon closure has affected transfer routes from both Turin and Grenoble.

The affected routes include:

  • Grenoble to Serre Chevalier, Briançon and Montgenèvre (detailed here)
  • Turin to Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d’Huez (detailed below)

Transfers to Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d’Huez

Just as the route from Grenoble has been “complicated” by the closure of the 1091, getting to Les Deux Alpes or Alpe d’Huez from Turin or Milan this winter would now be an epic journey. For a shorter and more convenient journey, we highly recommend booking a transfer from Grenoble to Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d’Huez.

As an added bonus, the flights are generally more frequent – arriving on both Saturday and Sunday, with more dates available over New Year – and a little cheaper flying from the UK to Grenoble rather than Turin, and with an average journey time of < 1 hour 45 minutes, you’ll have time for a refreshing post-flight nap yet arrive at your accommodation earlier*.

A transfer for 4 people from Grenoble airport to Les Deux Alpes is just €280 (€400 on Sundays) – that’s from €70 per person – and for 5 to 8 passengers it’s €335 – from under €42 per person.

Our transfer prices are even cheaper if you are traveling to Grenoble train station to Les Deux Alpes (€175 for 4 people and €220 for 5 to 8) – from just €27.50 per person!

Transfers to Alpe d’Huez are a little cheaper than the rates stated above, and a little more exciting, due to the famous 21 hair-pin bends in the Tour de France! Find out more on the links below, or contact us directly to find out more:

Contact Emma to arrange your transfer and confirm pricing – there’s a handy booking form on every page of our website, or you can call us directly at The Alpine Transfer Company office on +33 (0) 685 68 71 31.
