Active Things To Do in Lake Tahoe

Most people who come to Lake Tahoe, come for the outdoor activities. In one day at the lake you can ski, boat, hike, snowshoe, kayak, ice skate, go exploring or do some swimming or even some SCUBA diving.

Some of the best active things to do at Tahoe is kayaking from Lester Beach to Emerald Bay or around Sand Harbor or King's Beach. If you want to be in the water, do some swimming at Sand Harbor, the Lake Tahoe State Park or on Nevada Beach.

If you want to get away from the water, lace up your hiking boots and head to the hiking areas of Desolation Wilderness, Mt. Rose, Mt. Tallac or the Tahoe Rim Trail. For some easier hikes, try the Galena Creek Trail, the Ophir Creek Trail, the trails around Donner Lake or even the bike and pedestrian walking paths near Tahoe City or South Lake Tahoe.

Other active sports that you may not expect include ice skating at Squaw Valley's High Camp or the South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena, parasailing on the North Shore, sailing on the Woodwind I or renting jetskis at Camp Richardson.
