Travel options to the French Alps by rail

Within half an hour, you’ve checked in. Within two hours, you’re in another country. And despite this unique service being available for over a decade, the novelty still hasn’t worn off.

Travel to the heart of the French Alps on a Eurostar Ski Train, running from late December until early April.

There are two Direct Eurostar Ski Trains to choose from:

Night service- Get eight days on the slopes as you depart Friday evening (arriving first thing on Saturday) returning following Saturday night.

High-speed day service - Arrive in just seven and a half hours, travelling through the day on Saturday.

The Eurostar service departs from the newly refurbished London St Pancras. This newly renovated Victorian station is a destination in its own right with boutique shopping and Europe's longest champagne bar. St Pancras International offers a range of shops, bars, restaurants and wireless internet access unlike anything ever seen in a UK rail station.

Trains will also stop at Ebbsfleet International, a new station situated in Kent, it's glass and steel structure is a sleek and futuristic addition to the surrounding countryside and is situated minutes from Junction 2 of the M25. It’s also close to the M2, M20 and A2. With parking for 9,000 cars the facilities include cafés, newsagents, cash machines and wireless internet.
