    About Trains to Les Arcs

    About Trains to Les Arcs

    Bourg St Maurice is at the bottom of the valley below Les Arcs and from here you can easily connect to the unique funicular service which takes you up to Les Arcs 1600, meaning that you can get the train almost all of the way into resort itself. Shuttle buses connect to the Funicular from the main train station, but only on Saturdays in winter. 

    In winter the funicular starts operating from mid December to the end of the season in April. It takes 7 minutes and runs every 20 minutes starting at 07:30 and running until 20:00 (and from 07:30-21:00 on Saturdays only).

    In the summer, the funicular runs from early July to the end of August on the hour and half hour from 08:00 to 19:00. It's free if you've already bought your ski or lift pass, or costs around 7.50 euros one way or 13.00 return if you don't have a pass.

    Buses also regularly run from Bourg St Maurice to Les Arcs' villages, or you can hop in a taxi for the short drive up the mountain. Head over to our bus services page for more information and timetables or read more in our Transfers Guide.

    If you're staying in Peisey, Vallandry, Montchavin or Nancroix, you may prefer to get off the train at Landry, the stop before Bourg St Maurice, and pick up a taxi, shuttle bus or local transfer from there up to your accommodation.

    If you're looking for how to get to Les Arcs by train from further afield, read our guide on National and International Train Services. Trains connect to Bourg St Maurice, the nearest train station to Les Arcs.
