Argentiere railway station

Travel Alternatives

The village lies approximately 75-90 minutes drive from Geneva Airport. Although this is the route many take, it is not the only option available:

By Road -

  • A40 to N205 (Autoroute Blanche) from Geneva via Sallanches
  • Tunnel du Mont Blanc N205 from Italy's E25 / A5 from Aosta via Courmayeur
  • N506 from Switzerland's route 203 (via Martigny)

Please note that snow tyres or chains can be very useful (and occasionally obligatory) in bad weather for the climb up to Argentiere.

By Rail -

The village lies on the meter-gauge St Gervais-Vallorcine-Martigny line. Martigny is roughly 17 km away, over the Swiss border, Saint-Gervais-du-Bains is approximately 32 km away and is the nearest SNCF mainline station; the journey from Paris to St Gervais takes five hours.

The village stop, Argentière Haute Savoie, is only 200 m from the Grands Montets cable car. The staff on this line have a good reputation and are always willing to assist people booking onward travel.

By Bus -

The Chamonix valley has an extensive network of bus routes, allowing you to sample runs all over the valley. Buses run from the Argentière Grands Montets stop at approximately fifteen minute intervals during the day, and there is a good evening service to and from Chamonix itself.
