In a pedestrian resort
Avoriaz is a pedestrian resort with no cars. You can get around on skis, toboggans, bicycles, skateboards or on foot, but also by sled and sleigh!
AND SNOW VEHICLES
Avoriaz is a pedestrian, vehicle-free resort where everyone gets around on skis, on sledges, on foot, or even by sleigh or snow vehicle.
20 sleigh drivers and their 100 horses provide a daytime taxi service that is backed up on arrival days with snow vehicles which also operate a night taxi service. The sleigh drivers each own their sleigh and change the working horses every 2 hours, as the animals’ wellbeing is their priority. The horse breeds used are chosen for their robustness and keen working spirit.
The Avoriaz 1800 intra-resort transport service does not take advance bookings. Simply reserve your ride once you’re outside and ready to leave.
If you need transport, this single number is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day:
+33(0) 4 50 74 01 55
The horse-drawn sleighs of Avoriaz 1800 operate like taxis. Just dial the one-and-only number for Avoriaz 1800 transport as soon as you’re outside and ready for pick-up.
The sleighs carry up to 4 passengers maximum, or 3 people with luggage. The fare depends on the journey taken, and an extra cost of €4 will be charged for luggage.
In order to guarantee a 24/7 transport service, our snow vehicles take over from the sleighs from 8 pm until 8 am on weekdays, and also provide back-up on Saturdays when people are leaving or arriving at the resort.
Fares depend on the journey taken and are given for 1 to 5 passengers. Additional passengers will be charged an extra €2 each.
The shuttle is free and serves all the resort.
The Avoriaz shuttle will allow you to circulate free of charge and to easily reach the different strategic places of the resort. It runs every day from 10am to 12.15pm and from 1.30pm to 6pm every 20 minutes (except on Saturdays).
