Skiroc, Buet, near Vallorcine, Chamonix, 74660, France


Driving from the UK is usually the cheapest way to get to the Alps.  Budget around £400 return via the Eurotunnel. It takes about 9 hours from Dover.


Leave on Friday night to avoid the traffic and stay in Troyes if you can! We like the Arlequin Hotel. 

If you are a single parent family, and you would like to share the drive, get in touch. We'll try to find you some fellow travellers! 


We thoroughly recommend the train!! Train is the most Eco way to travel. One of the reasons we chose this Outdoor Centre, is because you can get from London to it's doorstep by train!
