The French national railways has announced that rail traffic between Modane and St-Michel-Valloire will be disrupted for the coming weeks due to a landslide that was reported in the French Alps on 27th August. This would impact train journeys on the route between Paris – Turin – Milan. Read more about it on the SNCF website.


If you were planning to travel on the impacted route, we recommend using an alternative route via Zurich. Please note that the route from Paris – Zurich – Milan is currently facing a delay due to the closure of the Gotthard Tunnel in Switzerland (check post below for more information). Please make sure to check the SBB timetable shortly before departure of your planned journeys for up-to-date information.


Additionally, due to weather conditions, multiple railway lines in the Alps are currently disrupted in Austria, Switzerland, and Italy. Please check the ÖBB website for updated information to see if your planned journey will be impacted for travel in Austria.


There is also a planned maintenance disruption on the route from Bern to Milan from 21st August to 10th September, so we recommend the route through Zurich or Luzerne. Please check the SBB timetable for updated information.


For all of the above disruptions, please contact the relevant carriers to inquire about exchanging your reservations for the alternative routes suggested.
