Travelling to your Chamonix Mountain Bike Holiday

With guests travelling from many different places we have found it better to allow our guests the flexibility to find the best and the cheapest way of getting to Chamonix themselves. Fly into Geneva, Switzerland, the closest airport and we will pick you up and transport you to the chalet. Flights are frequent and provided by many airlines. Alternatively if there are in a group of mountain bikers you might find it better to drive to Chamonix.

Some guests prefer to make a week mountain biking with 10fifty part of a longer European vacation and may drive or even use the excellent French railways to get to Chamonix. Talk to the 10fifty office and we will be happy to advise on the best ways and provide directions - by telephone on +44 (0) 7803 581132, or email

Chamonix is located in the Northern Alps and the Chamonix Valley has borders with both Switzerland and Italy. The importance of the Mont Blanc Tunnel in Chamonix to trans-alpine transport means that it is very well connected by road.

Driving to Chamonix for your Holiday

Driving from England, or other European countries, is an option for many guests. It is over 500 miles from Calais to Chamonix, and whilst the traffic on the autoroutes is generally light, the tolls and fuel adds up. Remember that putting mountain bikes on an external rack will significantly increase fuel consumption, and wind noise! See our driving to Chamonix page for more details. Travel links page for ferry / Channel Tunnel websites.

Talk to the 10fifty Mountain Biking office and we can provide you with directions and a map. Remember that a warning triangle, spare bulbs and first aid kit are compulsory in your car, or you could get in trouble. The speed limit on the autoroute is 130kph in the dry and 110kph in the wet.

Flying to your Mountain Bike Holiday

Geneva is a major airport and is well served by a large number of airlines. EasyJet pioneered the low cost airlines introduction to Geneva. Their prices are still amongst the cheapest, are the other airlines had to cut their prices too in response. Please note that EasyJet and some others now charge set fees for carrying bike and they must be pre-booked on the flight. You can either book directly with many of the airlines of go through agencies like Expedia. We have listed a number of useful holiday travel links for booking your flights.
