Geneva International Airport (GVA), the second busiest airport in Switzerland, is the closest to the meeting location. You can reach the school by car rental, shuttle service, or regular bus service.

Shuttle Service
The simplest way is to use a shuttle service (approximately 40 euros from Geneva airport up to the school, book at least three days in advance). If you already have your return date, we would recommend to book a return trip.

Bus Service
These is also a regular bus service between Geneva and Les Houches (only once or twice a day). One should then take a taxi from the last 5 kms from the Les Houches village to the school.
Suggested Taxi Numbers:
