Driving to Italian ski resorts

Car travel’s a eco-friendlier, often cheaper way of getting to your ski resort in Italy. If your group has two or more people happy to take to the wheel, you can share the drive and enjoy a scenic road trip to the mountains.

The Italian resorts can be reached by road through France, and the quickest way to cross the channel to France is via the Euro tunnel from Folkestone. This departs up to four times an hour and takes 35 minutes to reach Calais. You can also opt for ferry travel from Dover, which transports you to Calais in about an hour and a half. This tends to be the cheaper method of channel crossing, and many prefer it as a chance to have a power nap or stretch the legs.

Driving from Calais, our recommended self-drive Italian ski resorts take around 9-12 hours to get to. Most routes follow the A26 past Reims, then go south past Troyes and Dijon or east towards Strasbourg. For Courmayeur and the Aosta resorts, routes lead through the Mont Blanc tunnel. While for the Dolomites, you can drive through Germany or Switzerland into Austria and then cross the border at Brenner.

Approx. toll costs for driving to the Italian Alps from Calais:

60 – 120€ (as of 2021):
