For the fastest access to Saas Fee take flights to Sion airport at weekends during the winter season. Transfer from Sion to Saas Fee is just over an hour.


One of the most relaxed ways is by train. Trains go from Geneva airport and Zurich airport, onto Visp where local Post buses (yellow buses) take you up to Saas Fee. A ticket bought in the UK from the Swiss Travel Centre gives you a special tourist rate you can't buy on arrival, so best to book ahead. The Geneva train takes 2 ½ hours and from Zurich will be 2 hours.
