The Pays d’Évian-Vallée d’Abondance is a region in the Haute-Savoie located on the edge of Lake Geneva, in the Chablais Massif. It extends from Publier in the northwest to the Swiss border in the east and goes right down to Châtel.
You can reach Thonon-les-Bains or Évian-les-Bains by train on the Swiss and French railway network. Since 2019, the Léman Express links Geneva to Evian in only 1 hour!
If you are coming from Lyon, you can reach Thonon or Évian in 3 hours by going through Bellegarde-sur-Valserine. From Paris, on Saturdays, you can even jump onto the direct TGV that takes only 4h30.
By plane, the closest airport is Geneva. You then take the airport train to “Geneva-Cornavin” (very regular service) for the link to Thonon-les-Bains or Évian-les-Bains in 1 hour.
If you are coming from the other side of the lake, maybe you’d be interested in joining the region by boat from Lausanne! There are regular crossings linking Lausanne to Thonon-les-Bains and Lausanne to Évian-les-Bains.
EVA’D (Evian Vallée d’Abondance Déplacements) brings together all the traffic information, the network map and details all the transport lines and timetables circulating in the territory. Buses, trains and boats!
Access to Thollon and Bernex villages couldn’t be easier from Évian! Take advantage of daily connections during the school holidays!
Take line 12 (formerly 121), which links Thonon and Châtel, to the stations in the Vallée d’Abondance!
Winter and summer alike, the ColomBus shuttle bus takes you to the Abondance valley, from Abondance to Châtel.
The resorts offer shuttles from their villages to their ski areas and activity sites.
Free shuttle buses run all day all across La Chapelle d’Abondance village, so you can reach the ski domains (during the winter season). The return route is as follows: Les Plagnes – Crêt-Béni – Église – Tourist Information Centre (main square) – Les Thoules – La Panthiaz – La Ville du Nant – Centre Sportif. Only in the winter season.

Original and practical, Bernex’s little train runs throughout the day to take you from the village centre to and from the base of the ski slopes, for holidaymakers it’s a fun trip in itself! During the school holidays, the little train runs non-stop every day with a rotation every 20 minutes.
