Verbier is easily accessible from the valley. Switzerland boasts one of the most extensive railway networks in Europe. Take a train from anywhere, get off in Martigny and hop on to the train to Le Châble. The brand new station there is equipped for modern two-storey trains and is close to the cable car which will bring you up to Verbier. Once you reach the resort, a free shuttle bus will take you to your final destination. What could be easier?
If you are planning to stay for a few days and have lots of luggage, you may prefer the comfort and practicality of your own car. From Martigny, you can reach Verbier in 30 minutes! Take the road which leads to Sembrancher and, once there, turn off in the direction of Verbier. When you reach Le Châble, you have two options: 1) You can leave your car in the free Curala carpark and take the cable car up to Verbier or 2) carry on by car, along the wide, well-maintained road to Verbier.
If you live further away, the plane is probably the best option. You can fly into either Geneva airport (2 ½ hours from Verbier) or Zurich airport (just over 4 hours away).
