Driving from Lyon or Grenoble airport to Serre Chevalier

Directions from Lyon or Grenoble to Serre Chevalier

If you are driving to Serre Chevalier from either Lyon or Grenoble in winter, we recommend you travel via Chambéry and the Tunnel du Fréjus – an efficient route with very little risk of closure following heavy snow and/or high winds. However, you may also use the new Tunnel du Chambon and Col du Lautaret pass although please refer to the disruption in opening times below.

Can I drive from the north via the Col du Lautaret mountain pass?

Important! The usual route to Serre Chevalier from the north e.g. from Grenoble or Lyon, using the D1091 and the Col du Lautaret mountain pass:

  • is temporarily closed from 5 March – 13 July 2017
  • re-opens for summer from 14 July – 21 August 2017 (only between 05:00-21:00)
  • is temporaily closed from 22 August – 14 December 2017
  • re-opens permanently from 15 December 2017.

The above disruption is due to the collapse of the Tunnel du Chambon near the turning for the resort of Les Deux Alpes. A brand new tunnel has been built but is still being decorated/finished.
