Arrivals to Gare du Lyon

Gare du Lyon is a very large train station, but the main entrance and exits are well signposted from the main concourse where our driver will meet you. There will be a short walk across the road from the station as there is no parking in the forecourt at Gare du Lyon – so do make use of the extra hands to help with your luggage.

Get the AM train – be in Chambery, Les Arcs, Montgenèvre or Bourg-Saint-Maurice for a late lunch…
It is a well-known train station for skiers all over the world. From Gare du Lyon, you can easily reach the Alps as they brush the borders of Switzerland, Italy and France together. You can reach the Alps from Paris in as little as 3.5 hours on the TGV, depending on the service you choose.

Paris Gare du Lyon is also the starting point for the popular high speed Alps services, loved by Europeans taking a ski-holiday elsewhere on the continent who change in Paris. NB – the Bourg-Saint-Maurice service only runs in the winter.

There’s also TGV which hurtles through to Turin and Milan, stopping at Chambery, and also to the hidden gem of a train station, Modane (at the weekends) along the way. There’s also the TGV Lyria service which reaches Geneva – a great option for airport transfers, and Lausanne. Finally, in terms of cross-European routes, there is a TGV that speeds all the way to Basel and Zurich; and another to Perpignan and Barcelona from which you can get a transfer with us, to Andorra La Vella.


Eco-friendly Alps Travel
Using the high speed trains are of course, nowhere near as fast as flying. But, the TGVs are undoubtedly one of the most eco ways of getting to the French and Italian Alps, while taking the most scenic route and the most legroom, all while lowering your ski holiday’s carbon footprint.

Can I go skiing in Vosges? It’s only a 4hr transfer from Gare du Lyon…

Kind of. A stunning, protected national park: the Vosges comprise of plateaus and low peaks which support any needs or abilities that are suited to gentle slopes, or slower downhill skiing experiences.

The Vosges as a destination can be helpful for more nervous skiers who want to gradually build up their hardiness to turns, control and altitude, and you should work with a local, understanding ski tutor to help you.

So, can you go skiing in the Vosges? Technically – yes. But certainly not for the traditional powder hound or black run demon by any means – the valleys have soft gradients, the snow is only sure in the late season for mountain peaks below 2,000m.
