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, the best route is via the D1091 (if you had heard that this route was no longer viable, the good news is that there is now a new tunnel – the ‘Tunnel du Chambon’ – mid-way and normal service has been resumed! Note that a 4×4 or snow chains are highly recommended as you will drive over the Col du Lautaret (2000m) en-route. When picking up a hire car from the airport, ensure that the hire company has indeed supplied the snow chains with the car.
