Geneva to Morzine Transfer

If it’s your first time flying in to Geneva Airport and heading off to Morzine, you will be pretty amazed at how quick and easy your journey is, with just a 90-minute transfer time between Morzine and Geneva Airport.

Leaving the Geneva motorway behind, you’ll start the climb up to Morzine, with the snow-capped mountains as the backdrop to the last part of your journey. Your transfer driver will take you through some lovely alpine locations, including Taninges, the last big town before the Portes du Soleil resorts.

Passing the turn off to Praz de Lys, you’ll soon find yourself in Les Gets and from the windows of the transfer bus, you’ll spot your first ski lift of the journey! After that, it’s just a few more kilometres along the road before you arrive in the heart of Morzine.

Hard to believe that just a couple of hours ago you were flying into Geneva Airport and now you’ve arrived in resort in your transfer bus, ready to enjoy all Morzine has to offer!

Morzine Destination Guide

Morzine – The All Seasons Resort for Everyone!

Morzine village is spread out along two sides of a valley, with a mix of modern areas and the old village centre. Lifts run from both sides for skiing and boarding in winter and for mountain biking and walkers in the summer, making it the perfect all year round resort for active types.

SO much skiing in winter!

The extensive, cruisey skiing in Morzine and neighbouring Les Gets is excellent for getting your ‘ski legs’. Once you’ve found them, head over to sister resort Avoriaz, the gateway to exploring the whole of the vast Portes du Soleil area that stretches across France and Switzerland.

In a week of skiing you could easily do different pistes every single day!

With over 650km of mountain bike trails plus freestyle and dirt parks, Morzine is paradise on two wheels in summer. The resort is well-organised for bikers, with easy to use lifts to take your bike up, good value lift passes and jet washers to hose down your bike at the end of the a good day of riding.

Mountain Drop-offs is also totally geared up to summertime in Morzine, with all our transfer buses operating out of Geneva Airport offering bike carriage (please book this service in advance).

Morzine’s great in-resort feel

Back at resort level, Morzine has long been a favourite destination for British holidaymakers who’ll feel at home in the many English-owned bars and restaurants in town.

If you’d prefer to be immerse yourself in local life, there are lots of restaurants and bars offering Savoyard fare. We’re talking a raclette with local reblochon cheese, followed by a quick Genepy digestif or full strength Mutzig. And after you’ve eaten, you’ll find that out of all the Portes du Soleil resorts, Morzine has the most vibrant apres-ski and night life.

Leave the car at home

And with so much apres-ski and partying on offer in Morzine, we can highly recommend abandoning the idea of a hire car from the airport. After all, who wants to wake up feeling a little ‘tired and emotional’ and having to dig out the car and then drive all the way back to Geneva Airport?

Much easier to let the transfer bus take the strain all the way from Morzine to departures!

Snowmobile Trekking

Guided treks leave at 5.30pm from Avoscoot HQ, which is the little wooden chalet right next to the La Chappelle drag lift.

Ice Diving at Lac Montriond

Once the water has frozen, you can try ice diving at the beautiful Montriond lake during the winter season. Amazingly, you don’t even need to have scuba diving experience to do this daredevil activity.

Your fully qualified instructor Jean-Marc Bel will show you a wonderful underwater winter wonderland with his Ice Diving experiences. The lake is covered with a 60cm to 100cm-thick layer of ice in winter and the water is up to 19m deep in places.
