Getting there

The main access to Aussois is by the train station of Modane, which is in the train line from Paris to Milano. A simple travel plan is therefore to combine plane and train, by arriving to the airport of Milano-Malpensa or Torino in Italy, or Paris-CDG or Lyon in France, and then take a TGV to Modane. There are direct connections between these towns and Modane every day.

  • Milano – Malpensa or Torino (Italy) + train to Modane
  • Lyon (France) + train to Modane

There are train connections from the cities and airports of Paris (Charles-de-Gaulle), Lyon, Torino and Milano (Malpensa). The train from Paris to Torino/Milano stops at Modane. A Paris-Modane travel takes about 4 hours (for direct trains from Paris-Gare-de-Lyon to Modane) and should cost 80-90 € one way. Access via Torino is shorter (1 hr 20 mns) and cheaper (currently around 20 € one way).

Train tickets can be bought about three months in advance from these sites :

From the train station of Modane, you can reach the Aussois village by taxi (20min., 40€ roughly), or by shuttle bus at the bus station close to the train (frequent departures). A shuttle bus service will be organized on June 20th at 2pm and 19:45pm for the arrival of Paris trains.
