The emblematic Swiss Federal Railways (CFF/SBB) provide fast, efficient connections from Geneva and Sion airports and major European cities via Lausanne or Brig to the nearby town of Aigle. From Aigle, transfer to the AOMC cogwheel train (Aigle – Ollon – Monthey – Champéry) for a scenic trip over the Rhone River and into the Canton of Valais. Just past the town of Monthey, the cogwheel slides into gear and you begin the winding climb up into the Val d’Illiez.

The AOMC train that crosses the valley from Monthey to Champéry.

by car

The Val d’Illiez is just 15 minutes from the St-Triphon exit off the A9 motorway. An important part of the Swiss national motorway network, the A9 serves western Switzerland and provides a direct link to the major European motorway axes.

From Monthey, you will take Road 21 to Troistorrents, Val-d’Illiez and Champéry. To reach Morgins, you will have to take the first exit to the right of the Troistorrents roundabout which goes up to the resort. After the village, the customs of “Pas de Morgins” will take you to France and the Abondance Valley. To reach Les Crosets and Champoussin, take the first exit in the Val-d’Illiez roundabout.

Highway sticker

To travel on Swiss highways, it is necessary to obtain a “vignette” for CHF 40.-. You can buy it in sticker form once you arrive in Switzerland, at airports, customs offices or petrol stations. The sticker should then be affixed to the windscreen of your vehicle.

The sticker is also available in digital format. The “e-vignette” can be purchased directly on the internet by linking it to your number plate.

In all cases, the “vignette” expires at the end of the calendar year and must be renewed the following year.

BUSSES & Shuttles

To facilitate travel between the villages of the Région Dents du Midi, the local public transport company (TPC) and the municipal administrations provide shuttle services that allow you to reach the valley’s key attractions.
