Driving to Swiss ski resorts

France might hog the spotlight for easy self-drive, but Swiss ski resorts can be just as quick to reach. Besides being eco-friendly, driving to resort gives you a lot more flexibility than other modes of transport: you’re able to set off when you like, take as many breaks as you fancy and pack the car with as much Swiss chocolate and cheese as possible on the way home - without worrying about weight limits.

The routes to the Swiss resorts take you through France. For access over the channel from England, the Euro Tunnel shuttle departs from Folkestone four times an hour in peak periods, and the journey to Calais only takes 35 minutes.

Another way to reach France is the Dover-Calais ferry, which is usually cheaper than the shuttle. The crossing tends to take about an hour and a half, which some drivers prefer as an opportunity to have a change of scene or nap after driving to the coast.

From Calais, getting to Switzerland’s top self-drive ski resorts takes around 8-10 hours (without stopping). Most routes take you along the A26 through Reims, then east past Mets and south past Strasbourg towards Basel, or south past Troyes and Dijon then over the border towards Lausanne.

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

30 – 60€ (as of 2021)
