Outdoor Activities in Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe was made for lovers of the outdoors, but you don't need to be a fitness guru to enjoy the natural wonders of the area either. These activities come just as active or relaxed as you'd like. So get out of the city, and get back to nature.

A simple hike up to Eagle Lake or kayaking around Sand Harbor will give you as much of a thrill as a full-day hike up to Mount Tallac.

Winter in Lake Tahoe is a snow lover's paradise, so start your outdoor fun at the Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort, a local favorite. If you are up at the lake in the fall, hiking is the activity of the day. View the south part of the lake and the Carson Valley from the south portion of the Tahoe Rim Trail, or climb to the top of the highest peak in the area: Mt. Rose. Fall is also a great time for biking. Rent a bike from Gear & Grinds or Cyclepaths and ride along the Tahoe City bike path. If you are visiting in the summer, enjoy the cool blue waters of Tahoe or the nearby Donner Lake from a kayak from Tahoe City Kayak. Emerald Bay is included in this best-of list just for the sheer beauty of this area. No trip to the lake should miss this jewel of the lake. Hike up into the Desolation Wilderness behind the bay or walk down to the bay and its beautiful park and beach.
