Rail Europe Adds Mont-Blanc, Léman Express to Website

Rail Europe has added Mont-Blanc Express and Léman Express to its website and app. Both routes are located in the border region of Switzerland and France, one of the most visited areas in Europe.

“We are delighted to add the Mont-Blanc and Léman train routes to our product range. This represents an important step in our quest to provide seamless train travel experiences in Europe, for all. Undoubtedly, this new offer will tear down boundaries while traveling cross-board between France and Switzerland and improve our offer in this beautiful region,” said Björn Bender, CEO of Rail Europe.

The Mont-Blanc Express, which connects Martigny to Saint-Gervais-les-Bains, is a narrow-gauge mountain railway, jointly run by SBB and SNCF. It passes the Trient Valley, with its rocky outcroppings, forests, wild gorges and alpine villages. Although promoted as “express,” the trains take more than two hours for the journey with an average speed of 15 mph for the 35-mile route, allowing travelers to enjoy the scenic views.

On the other hand, the Léman Express is one of the largest regional cross-border rail networks in Europe, which extends from the Geneva area into France, connecting Coppet to Évian-les-Bains, Annecy, Saint-Gervais-les-Bains, Bellegarde or Annemasse. The Léman Express links 45 train stations on 143 miles and welcomes up to 50,000 passengers every day.

As they traverse through alpine valleys, winding mountain passes and charming villages, the Mont-Blanc Express and Léman Express offer panoramic vistas of snow-capped peaks, lakes and meadows, thus attracting travelers from across the world.
