Getting to Evolene

Frost Guiding Courses are based in Evolene, a small town in a beautiful unspoilt valley. It is proud to offer visitors a warm and friendly welcome and has good campsites, b&b, hotels, restaurants and shops. There is plenty to do besides climbing - mountain biking, paragliding, via ferrata, hill walking, summer chair lifts, open-air ice skating in winter, excellent thermal baths...There is however no nightclub, so if you really want a Chamonix style apr├ęs-ski scene you may be disappointed!

Getting here is easy...

By train take the Eurostar from London St Pancras arriving in Paris "Gare du Nord". Transfer via metro lines 1 and 4 to Gare de Lyon and take the TGV train to Sion (via either Lausanne or Geneva - usually no need to change trains). Reservation is advisable (essential for Eurostar).

By car take the motorway to Sion, then 25 minutes drive south to Evolene. It takes around 10 hours from Calais.

Discounted Car Hire is available for Frost Guiding clients from Rhino Car Hire. Clients can claim their 10% discount via the link on our joining instructions.

If flying, there are frequent punctual trains from Geneva airport which take 2 hours to Sion and cost around CHF50 each way full fare. The bus station is right next to the train station and buses depart regularly until 7:10pm each night (last bus is at 8:40pm at weekends).
