Transfer from Turin airport to Puy St. Vincent

You have three options:

  1. Rent a car at the airport. We recommend this, especially in summer, as having a car is the best way to get around the Hautes Alpes.
  2. Hire a taxi - this will be as much as €300 one way
  3. Bus/train combination - first bus to Porta Nuova train station in centre of Turin. Then train to Oulx. Then bus to Briançon. Finally taxi to us. It will take you most of the day but it will only set you back around €50. The most environmentally friendly.
