How do Shared Transfers Work?

Shared Transfers to and from Les Houches

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 Les Houches. You will be sharing the vehicle with other people who will be dropped off at different locations in Les Houches. When leaving Les Houches, your driver will pick you up from your accommodation and drop you off at the airport departures.

On Arrival at Geneva Airport

The Journey from Geneva Airport to Les Houches

When travelling to Les Houches, passengers might be dropped off in one of the hamlets along the way. 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 have been a delay of 15-20 minutes, in a worst-case scenario. However, on the route from the Geneva Airport to Les Houches, there are no big resorts, so any delay is bound to happen in Les Houches, with people being dropped-off before you. Or, you might get lucky and be the first one that is dropped off.

The Journey from Les Houches to Geneva Airport

The transfer company will always notify you of the pick-up time from your accommodation or other 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.

When leaving Les Houches, other passengers might be picked up after you. However, once you depart Les Houches, the driver will not make many stops and you will soon arrive at Departures, at the Geneva Airport.

About Les Houches

Located only 6 km (4 mi) away from Chamonix, Les Houches is a traditional French farming village which encompasses 152 km (94 mi)of ski pistes.

Les Houches assisted in the organization of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games and it is home to the world-renowned physics summer school, the École de Physique des Houches.

Les Houches is the starting and finishing point of the Tour du Mont-Blanc, a 7 to 10 days walk around the base of the Mont-Blanc massif.

From the village, you can take the Prarion lift to get up to the Prarion Plateau (1,900 m or 6,233 ft), from where you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Mont-Blanc.

You can also take the Bellevue cable car from Les Houches, which will take you to the Bellevue plateau (1,800 m or 5,905 ft), from where you choose from many hiking trails in unique landscapes.

The commune is a charming ski resort perfect for all ski competences. Moreover, you do not even have to be passionate about skiing, as Les Houches offers many other exciting activities.

Skiing in Les Houches

The ski area of Les Houches extends from an altitude of 950 m to 1,900 m (3,116 ft to 6,233 ft) and it combines long and gentle descents with fascinating views of the mighty Mont-Blanc and the Chamonix valley.

Due to its gentle and long descents and the tree-lined runs, Les Houches is the perfect ski vacation destination for beginners and intermediates.

However, besides its four green runs (learner’s level), five blue runs (beginners) and 12 red runs (intermediates), in Les Houches, you will also find one international black run for advanced skiers, which is used for the annual international event, the Kandahar run, which is part of the Men’s Downhill World Cup Ski Championships. The black run will definitely be challenging enough even for the most experienced skiers.

And you shouldn’t worry about the lack of snow when in Les Houches! The village has a new network of 67 snow canons covering 19 hectares which provides artificial snow coverage, so you can fully enjoy skiing!

Other Attractions

Family Activities

Les Houches has been aiming for years at becoming an ideal family resort, which they succeeded, as they have been awarded the “Familie plus Montagne” certificate by the French government.

Almost every activity is designed with the purpose of being entertaining for everyone, regardless of their age. Also, Les Houches provided excellent family discounts, for example, the “tribu” ski pass for three to five people (two adults and one to three kids), which is cheaper than the usual price.


The Spa des Granges d'en Haut has 600 square meters and it is one of the best spas in the whole Chamonix valley. This state-of-the-art spa offers an indoor swimming pool, hammam, sauna, Jacuzzi, fitness room and four individual treatment rooms for massage and other treatments.

Les Houches has another modern spa - The Spa et Beauté Montagne – which provides many services as well.

Restaurants and Bars

There are many nice small to mid-sized restaurants in Les Houches, most of them serving local dishes and providing great views over the Mont-Blanc massif. Such two restaurants are the Hors Piste and Les Vieilles Luges.

There are a couple of nice cosy bars in Les Houches, but as the village is centred on families, you won’t have too many options. However, you can arrive in Chamonix in ten minutes by bus and the bus runs until midnight.
