Geneva airport is 95km from the centre of Avoriaz. To get here, we recommend you book an airport transfer.
How do you get from Geneva airport to Avoriaz?
The easiest and fastest way to get to Avoriaz is to book an airport transfer to the Prodains cable car which gives access to the resort. Transfer times will be longer on snowy days and in peak weeks, such as Christmas, New Year, school holidays and Easter.
Which drop-off point should you choose when booking an Avoriaz airport transfer?
Avoriaz, beautifully perched upon a cliff, is a car-free resort which means that airport transfers, taxis and buses will likely drop you off at one of the following two spots:
- The Avoriaz Welcome Centre is located at the top of the road that connects Morzine and Avoriaz, around a 20-minute drive from Morzine. This is the best drop-off option when staying at the Falaise or L'Amara areas of resort, as it's closest to them.
- The Prodains cable car is situated at the base of the cliff, 4km from the centre of Morzine. This modern lift whizzes you up to Avoriaz in just under 5 minutes. This is the best option when staying at the lower end of the resort. Access to the lift is included in the Avoriaz and Portes du Soleil lift passes, or you can buy a single or return ticket for the Prodains Express lift, costing around €7.50 for a one-way trip. The cable car is open every day in the winter from 07:00 to 21:00 (running until midnight on Friday and Saturday, and until 22:00 on Sunday) while, in the summer, the cable car operates daily from 09:30 to 12:30 and from 13:30 to 18:30.
From both the Avoriaz Welcome Centre and the arrival of the Prodains cable car you can move around on horse-drawn sleighs (available from 08:00 to 20:00, 7 days a week and costing around €5 to €15) and shuttles (operating 7 days a week from 20:00 to 08:00). There are also baggage sledges available at the entrance points to the resort as well as at the base of each residence which, for €1, will help you move your luggage around should you decide to walk to your accommodation.
