Epicurean treasures & French Alps skiing: selling travel to Lyon

The Gateway to the Alps just got easier to access with Air Canada’s new nonstop flights to Lyon, France.

This new route provides the only year-round direct service between North America and Lyon. Prior to the launch of these new flights, travellers had to fly in to Paris and then take a train to Lyon. Flying directly into Lyon saves the 500 kilometre journey, making this destination more accessible than ever.

Transfers between Lyon and the Alps resort towns are efficient and plentiful, and many visitors choose to rent a car and explore the Alps on scenic self-guided mountain adventures. Famous resort towns like Chamonix and St. Gervais boast world-class skiing with unforgettable views.

The city of Lyon is bursting with cultural and gastronomic treasures, and its food and drink scene is a force to be reckoned with. Famous chocolate shop and cafes, atmospheric wine bars, gastronomic beer halls, traditional Lyonnaise bouchon and Michelin-starred restaurants line cobblestone lanes and seduce palates with distinctly Lyonnaise flavours.

Lyon’s location in the Rhône-Alpes region makes it perfect for day trips to the Beaujolais region, where visitors can sip fine wines among enchanting French vineyards.
