Getting there


Peak Adventures is based in the resort of Vaujany which is found in the heart of the French Alps, Rhone-Isere region, located only one hour from Grenoble by car.

Once your booking is confirmed, we will provide you with detailed driving instructions straight to your accommodation, but for a better idea see our travel info below...


Car

The majority of our summer guests drive from the UK and you’ll benefit from a car when on holiday to take full advantage of the splendid French Alps setting. 

Vaujany is an hour from Grenoble and only 570 miles from Calais (of which 535 miles is motorway). It is certainly doable in a day. However, why not enjoy the scenic drive on the way down? Reims, Dijon or Lyon make for interesting stop-offs if you prefer to break up the journey.

French motorways are usually free-flowing and relatively pleasant. For the up to date info visit ViaMichelin or the AA route finder. The last part is as follows:

From Calais it is recommended to follow the following signs

  1. Reims
  2. Lyon
  3. Grenoble
  4. Once on the ring road of Grenoble follow the signs marked 'other directions' (autre directions)... this is the the A480
  5. Take exit no. 8 ‘Vizille – stations de l’Oisans, 
  6. Then take the main road D1091 to Bourg d’Oisans. 
  7. At Rochetaille take the left onto the D526 towards Allemont 
  8. Once passed the Lac de Verney take the right hand sign to Vaujany on the D43A
