By Plane

A plane journey emits 80% more CO2 than a train journey. However, we understand that in some cases, air travel remains indispensable. If you find yourselves in one of those “cases”, we invite you to check the box guaranteeing a flight with a carbon neutral footprint at booking, or to calculate your carbon footprint using the tool provided by the French Ecological Transition Agency (ADEME): Access to the tool.

Once you know how much you emitted, you can compensate by supporting a French carbon capture and storage project: Projets bas carbone, Projets stockage CO2. 

However, as we believe that a posteriori compensation has limits , we invite you to be aware of your actions to avoid emissions beforehand. 

Four airports and one heliport are at your disposal. We recommend Geneva airport, offering more possibilities. Lyon and Geneva are about 2h30 from Les Arcs, Grenoble 2h and Chambery 1h30.
