Airport bus services to Verbier

The closest airport to Verbier is in the small Swiss town of Sion, just over 50km away. From here, an airport transfer will take 45 to 60 minutes or you can also take the train to resort in around 1h30, changing in Martigny and Le Châble. 

However, Geneva International airport offers a far greater choice of flights for visitors to Verbier and there are various airport transfers services running several times a day, every day of the week in winter. It takes around two hours, door-to-door from Geneva to Verbier on an airport transfer.
