Lake Tahoe ToursPine-fringed alpine lakes really don't come any more resplendent than this! If you're looking for things to do in Lake Tahoe then you'll be pretty much spoiled for choice, no matter what season you're visiting.

Watersports, hiking trails and snow-covered winter slopes make this one of the best spots for outdoor recreation anywhere in Southwest USAand from golf to gambling, getting bored is simply unheard of.

This is the perfect place to learn a new activity or indulge in something you love. Thanks to the reflective nature of Tahoe, sometimes just sitting and gazing across the water more than fits the bill.

Lake Tahoe Insider Tips

Sunset catamaran cruise
Thanks to Lake Tahoe's size and fabulous surroundings there's simply no better way to watch the sunset other than on the water and if you fancy doing it in some style then a catamaran cruise is certainly an enviable option. Position yourself on the trampoline and soak up the sun or allow your bare toes to almost cut a trace through the water, this is most definitely one of those unforgettable Tahoe moments that will stay with you for years to come. Of course, a glass of something cool and bubbly usually presents the perfect accompaniment to a sunset cruise.
When to go
Lake Tahoe's south-westerly location means conditions tend towards extremes with icy cold winters and gloriously warm summers. If you're into skiing or snowboarding, winter offers plenty of time to enjoy the white stuff. As temperatures rise in the spring you will find a fair few rainy days prior to the summer taking a foothold however, with a lack of crowds and fresher conditions, this is generally considered to be the best time to visit. The same can be said for the autumn as the beach crowds leave and the foliage starts to turn prior to the snow.
Highlights & Activities

Lake Tahoe Tour Highlights

Emerald Bay State Park Trail
With its incredible granite rock formations and high-altitude panoramas, enjoy gazing into the clear fresh water of Lake Tahoe. One of the most-popular walking routes is the State Park Trail that's roughly eight miles long.
Mountain Biking
If a hike isn't enough to get your pulse racing or you just fancy taking in as much of Tahoe as possible, then grab yourself a mountain bike and push off into the wide blue yonder, where you'll find a rich variety of rewarding gradients and distances.
If you fancy kayaking on North America's largest alpine lake, then right here is where you get the opportunity. Lake Tahoe is over 20 miles across so can't be fully crossed in a day, however at a leisurely pace, peace and tranquillity are yours to behold.
Catamaran Cruise
This is a completely lazy and relaxing alternative to pretty much everything else and if you just fancy having a little snooze as the sun shines then more power to you. A catamaran cruise is an effortless means of viewing the shoreline from a new perspective.
