By train. There is a regular service direct to Sion Station. Tickets can be booked on-line with SBB or you can use RailEurope. There are several rail and bus passes available. If booking a ticket on-line or through RailEurope you need to buy a ticket from Geneva Airport to Sion Station. The cost is approx. CHF 120 return. The station platforms are below the arrivals hall at Geneva Airport. There are approx. 2 trains an hour and the journey takes just over 2 hours. It is a very scenic ride along Lake Geneva and through the Rhône Valley. There is a regular bus service from Sion to Lens.
By car. Just over 2 hours (170km) from Geneva Airport. Most of this is easy motorway driving, with the last 20 minutes being up good mountain roads. We recommend using your own car or hiring one. The cost of car hire is only slighly higher than using the train, and it will give you so much more flexibility and the chance to explore the other fantastic places this area has to offer.
Owner Location Comment
Walking and Mountain Bike Paths start from the Chalet door. Lots of fantastic walks in the area. Please ask for suggestions and maps. In summer, swim in crystal clear lakes or take the lift up to the Plaine Morte Glacier at 3000 metres. Crans Montana has lots of shops, restaurants, swimming pools, spa & wellness facilities. The Ski Area and Mountain Cable Car is only a 10 minute drive from here. Chalet des Alpes is in the traditional picturesque Swiss mountain village of Lens. With a ski area of over 140 km this makes Crans Montana one of the premier ski resorts in Switzerland.
