How does a Shared Transfer work?

Shared Transfers from Geneva Airport to Avoriaz

Shared transfers are excellent options for those who travel on a tight budget, want to save money or simply want to enjoy the wonders of the world without leaving a high carbon footprint.

By choosing a seat in a shared vehicle you save money and leave a lower carbon trail. Using a shared transfer reduces the total traffic emissions of climate and air pollutants.

You will be taken from the airport arrivals and dropped off right at your chosen hotel or chalet, so you will not have to worry about taking a taxi or a bus when arriving in Avoriaz. You will be sharing the vehicle with other people who will be dropped off at different locations in Avoriaz. When leaving Avoriaz, your driver will pick you up from your accommodation and drop you off at the airport departures.

The Journey from Geneva Airport to Avoriaz

When travelling to Avoriaz, passengers might be dropped off in Les Gets and Morzine. This tends to happen more when demand is low. Each drop-off does cause a delay, and if you are the last person in the vehicle to be delivered to your accommodation, or other chosen destination in the resort, there might be a delay of 15-20 minutes, in a worst-case scenario. Any delay is more likely to happen in Morzine, on the way through to Avoriaz. In Avoriaz itself, there should be no delays, as Avoriaz is a car-free resort, and people will be dropped off at one of three locations: the big car park located at the entrance of the resort, in the Avoriaz Center/Avoriaz Village (the Welcome Centre at the top of the village) or the Avoriaz Cable Car.

The Journey from Avoriaz to Geneva Airport

The transfer company will always notify you of the pick-up time from the agreed location in the resort. Be in that place at the appointed time. If you are not there, the driver will not wait, as to do so, other passengers might be compromised by your no-show.

As all the pick-ups in Avoriaz are done to one of the three locations seen above, you will very soon be leaving the resort and heading to Geneva Airport. Along the way, the driver might stop in either Morzine and/or Les Gets to pick-up more people. Once the vehicle departs Les Gets, the next step is usually the airport.

About Avoriaz

Avoriaz is a French resort located in the centre of the Portes du Soleil (literally the Door of the Sun), which is one of the major and most popular ski areas in the European Alps.

Avoriaz is part of the commune of Morzine and has an interesting history.

The ski resort was built in 1965 when French downhill Olympic champion Jean Vuarnet was given the responsibility of developing the skiing of Morzine.

Morzine, although excellent for beginners and intermediates, lacks altitude. Consequenently, Avoriaz was developed 600m (2000ft) higher, in a dramatic clifftop location, overlooking Morzine.

Besides its advantageous position in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, Avoriaz is a purpose-built ski resort consisting of wooden chalet style apartment buildings, which blend well with the majestic mountains.

Avoriaz was voted Best Family resort in 2013 at the World Snow Awards in London.

Among many other family facilities, it should be noted that Avoriaz is a “100% ski-in, ski-out" pedestrianized resort, which means that you can get wherever you want on foot or ski, regardless of where you are staying in Avoriaz.

The ski resort is great for families or for groups of people with mixed ski competences because 60% of the slopes are for beginners and intermediates and the rest of 40% is for advanced and experts.

The architects won awards for their work on Avoriaz, so the ski resort is a must-see for all-mountain passionates, but not only.

Moreover, Avoriaz is an entirely pedestrianized village, which means that you won't be seeing any cars and all transportation happens either on foot or by ski or sledge.


Archery is a sport suited for people of all ages.

Tours & Excursions

The Avoriaz 'Petit Train Touristique' is a tourist train that circulates daily through the resort and is an excellent way to admire the amazing scenery.

La Fruitiere L’Alpage offers free tours of its cheese cellar and lessons in cheese making every Wednesday.
