Grenoble can be easily accessed by plane, train and car.
By plane, Grenoble is connected through shuttle services to the Lyon airport 'St Exupery' as well as the Geneva airport. If possible, we recommend to fly to Lyon St Exupery as shuttle services are more frequent, every 30 to 60 min, and transit takes appreciably less time ca. 60 min.
'St Exupery' airport shuttles are run by Blablacar and Flixbus. They operate alternatingly, please check both here:
Please note that bus tickets must be bought in advance via one of the above webpages. There are two stops in Grenoble: i) 'Pont d'Oxford' or 'Oxford' and ii) central bus station (gare routier).
