North Lake Tahoe of Nevada


Lake Tahoe is a beautiful boating paradise located at approximately 6,228 feet above sea level on the border of California and Nevada in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Lake Tahoe is one of the cleanest, clearest, and largest lakes in all of the United States, offering outstanding opportunities for recreation for individuals and families alike.

Nevada's Edge

Visiting Northern Lake Tahoe in the summer time provides a wealth of activities that are available for you enjoy. If you are not already athletically inclined, you will find plenty of places that will actually offer instruction and training in a variety of endeavors, including water skiing, knee boarding, wake boarding, and a lot more. You can even learn how to dive in the beautiful waters of Lake Tahoe, exploring a completely different realm with a number of dive sites worth exploring.

Things to Do

For some exercise and outdoor exploration, visit the North Lake Tahoe National Park, just south of Incline Village. Here, you can mountain bike winding paths and hike up to amazingly beautiful views of the lake all in an area that is comprised of 13,000 acres of forested open space. See animals in the wild and learn to love catch-and-release fly fishing. The Tahoe Rim Trail runs along the crest of the Carson Range and is a favorite among the locals.

Not only are there excellent boating opportunities for people who already own their own boats, but there are also plenty of opportunities for people to rent boats or join cruises so that they can enjoy the lake even if they do not own their own equipment. For example, one spectacular cruise will take you to Vikings Holm in the spectacular Emerald Bay, or you could tour the incredible Thunderbird Lodge. There are also a number of stunning and beautiful yachts to charter privately for special events by groups, including weddings and wedding receptions, corporate meetings, family reunions, and a variety of other events that require the highest quality of boating equipment.

There are also parasailing excursions allowing you to soar across the sky more than hundreds of feet in the air. Just keep in mind that parasailing is not for the faint of heart. You may also want to try hot air ballooning, piloting jet skis, wave runners, water skis, and a variety of other great activities. All of these activities are both fun and exhilarating and you can easily find rental equipment if you do not own your own.
