Getting the train to Meribel

Step 1. Getting the Eurostar straight to Moutiers 

You can now get the Eurostar snow train direct from London st Pancras and Ashford International to Moutiers (or Moutiers-Salins) for an effortless journey straight to the Alps. There are no restrictions on baggage, you can choose a train overnight and get a good night’s rest to arrive early to the Alps. Not to mention, it is by far the most environmentally friendly method of transport. The service runs every Friday and Saturday. It takes around 9 hours on the train and costs around £100-200. 

If you are concerned about your carbon footprint, travelling by train to the Alps is certainly the greenest way to go.
