Our ski experts have put together the following travel guide if you’re considering a package holiday to Les Arcs.
Les Arcs is in south-east France, in the department of Savoie and region of Rhône-Alpes. It’s located on the Paradiski, one of the largest mountain resorts in Europe that runs 450km across the Vanoise massif in the Tarentaise Valley.
The resort is made up of five smaller villages, each with its own ski centre. Even better, Les Arcs is linked to La Plagne via the Vanoise Express – a double-decker cable car that allows for easy transportation between the two areas.
Just one of the reasons Les Arcs ski resort is so great is because of its proximity to several international airports.
The best and quickest way to get there is by flying to Geneva and getting an airport transfer to the ski resort. Flights to Geneva airport are frequent and benefit from a wide selection of airlines, including budget alternatives if you’re travelling on a budget. A private airport transfer takes 2 hours and 45 minutes – a total distance of 218km.
If you prefer not to fly, you can also reach the resort by driving or via train. The extensive network of European motorways makes driving easy, while the Eurostar train from London stops at Bourg St Maurice, seven minutes from Les Arcs. These options, however, take significantly longer for a similar price.
The stunning ski resort is one of the main reasons so many people keep returning year on year. There is an excellent variety of skiing for different abilities. We’ve highlighted some of the best areas and runs depending on your experience and level.
Arc 1800 is the epicentre of après ski activity, with the party starting at the main square at Villards before continuing to the resort’s two clubs at the Charvet end. The most popular is Apokalypse, located in Arc 1800, and KL92 in Arc 2000.
