Les Deux Alpes is just over an hour by shuttle bus from Grenoble; Grenoble Isère airport is served from a variety of UK airports, some year-round. The area is also within easy reach of Lyon international airport and Geneva in Switzerland.

For the eco-minded, there are frequent TGV trains to Grenoble from Paris (three hours), in turn accessed by Eurostar from London.

It’s an 8-hour 45-minute (940km) drive to Les Deux Alpes from the Channel ferry/Eurotunnel terminus at Calais if you travel by motorway (possible for almost the entire route).
