Access to Modane (7 km from Aussois):


For foreigners, we recommend to fly to Lyon St Exupery Airport that is located at about 200 km from Aussois. Then there is a direct train (TGV) from Lyon St Exupery (the train station is in the airport) to Modane (Aussois is at 7 km from Modane). Practically, we recommend to take the following trains (for arrival and departure):



You may also transit through Paris and take the train as indicated below, but you will have to go from the airport (either Charles de Gaulle or Orly ) to the train station Paris Gare de Lyon.


This train is in fact the same one that stops at Lyon Airport.


You may also transit through Turin (Italy) and then take a train to Modane, as indicated below.



All the above mentioned trains are fast speed trains (TGV) and thus you must book your ticket, possibly through internet https://uk.voyages-sncf.com/en/#/ .Booking in advance is cheaper!

You may also fly to Geneva Airport (Switzerland) but connection to Aussois is less easy, unless you rent a car at the airport.
