How to reach Aosta Valley and Valgrisenche:

Valgrisenche is two and a half hour drive from Milan and Geneva airports.

  • via Milan - take the highway direction Torino, afterwards follow for Aosta; highway exit in Aosta Ovest; follow directions for Courmayeur, after 10 km in Arvier take the second exit at the roundabout and keep going up the road until Valgrisenche;
  • via Geneva or Chamonix Mont Blanc - take the highway, direction France-Chamonix; then follow for Mont Blanc tunnel Aosta-Courmayeur; pass the Mont Blanc Tunnel; at the exit of Courmayeur follow signs to Aosta on the normal road for 15 km (do not take the motorway). Right after the third tunnel in Leverogne/Arvier turn right and take the road for Valgrisenche until you will reach the chosen hotel;
  • or via Bourg Saint Maurice – Col du Petit Saint Bernard: you can reach Bourg Saint Maurice by train from the main French airports. Once in Bourg Saint Maurice you will need to rent a car to reach the Aosta Valley via the Col du Petit Saint Bernard (2 hours drive). It's a little longer trip but you can save the toll at the Mont Blanc Tunnel.
