Ski Holidays By Eurostar Train

STOP PRESS. Eurostar took the decision to cancel the service to the Alps this year, when the service restarts, our package holidays by Eurostar will return. It’s still possible to reach the French Alps by rail, by taking the Eurostar service to Paris and then a TGV service to Moutier or Borg St Maurice.

Taking your skiing holiday by Eurostar is a wonderful way to reach the Alps. Fewer crowds, no security delays as is so often the case at airports, and an altogether relaxed journey, particularly so for families.

There’s no rip-off ski carriage charges or maximum luggage allowances, no restrictions on fluids and only a short transfer to most of the ski resorts around Moutiers, Aime or Bourg St Maurice with some of the resorts reached within just 15 minutes.

Ski Holidays By eurostar TrainThere are two choices of Eurostar, the overnight service which departs London St Pancras on Friday evening and arrives, in the Alps at 05:30 in time for Breakfast. The return Eurostar departs late in the evening on Saturday before arriving back to London Early on the Sunday morning. This option allows for 2 extra days on the slopes.

The most popular service is the direct Saturday service which leaves London at a pleasant, 09:45. Clearing security is very fast compared to flying from the airport.
