TRAIN TO VAL D’ISÈRE
Eurostar's ski train to the French Alps
This winter, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Travelski, who’ll be offering direct trains to the Alps as part of a package. Find out more here.
You can also hit the slopes by taking the Eurostar to Paris, then hopping on a TGV train to Moûtiers and Bourg-Saint-Maurice. You will be able to book tickets for the whole journey through our website from autumn.
And you won’t need to worry about missing your connection in Paris. Because Eurostar is a member of Railteam, your ticket will allow you to jump on the next available train in Paris if you’re delayed or your train is cancelled.
