I was thinking of taking the train from Martigny to Chamonix and back when I am in the area next week. I see that there is a detour between Martigny and Finhaut - by bus instead of train. I am wondering if doing the trip part way by bus is recommended as far as sightseeing is concerned. I assume it will take longer, not sure how much. Thanks for any advice.

I haven't been on this train route but based on the timetable you are only on a bus for about 25 minutes on a 90 minute trip and I would hazard a guess that it won't ruin any sightseeing. The overall time is actually unchanged with the bus detour as per the timetable.

Thanks very much - when I first looked at this a couple of months ago I didn't see the updated timetable.....so I guess the bus ride won't be a big deal.....excellent!
