Every Saturday we run a minibus and trailer to Geneva, typically arriving at 10am and leaving again at 4pm. The cost for this transfer is £40 each way. If you can not fly into Geneva then we can arrange for transfers from other airports, but the cost is likely to be higher, particularly for smaller groups and individuals.
There are a few airports serving Les Arcs (Geneva | Lyon | Grenoble) all with reasonable transfer times to The Mountain Bike Chalet.
The most popular airport is Geneva, 2.5 hours away.
The (unofficial) web site genevaairport.net has some good information, in particular it has a good rundown on the airlines flying into Geneva which should help you to find a regional airport close to your home. You could also try the official web site gva.ch as another source of information.
Lyon airport is just under 3 hours away.
The Lyon Airport web site is quite helpful and lists the airlines serving it.
There are high speed links from Paris to Bourg St Maurice on the TGV by day (approx 5 hours) or overnight sleeper trains (approx 9 hours), which combined with the Eurostar service from London St Pancras can make for a hassle free journey.
Bourg St Maurice is only 15 minutes drive from Chalet Algonquin and we will gladly pick you up for free upon your arrival.
There are excellent motorway links to within an hour of The Mountain Bike Chalet Co. A 10 hour journey time from Calais, allowing only for fuel stops, is not unrealistic, with toll charges of approximately £50.
