The Tahoe Adventure Company now offers Outdoor Education Programs designed specifically to complement students' classroom studies. The power and effectiveness of Outdoor and Environmental Education is well established and, in our opinion, an extremely important component of a child's growth and understanding of the world. This hands-on approach to learning reinforces classroom lessons and allows students to experience the world they are learning about. Experiential Education creates lasting impressions and promotes a strong connection to the natural world.
Tahoe Adventure Company Outdoor Education Programs are custom designed for each school. Programs can run for 1-4 days and can incorporate any or all of our Adventure Activities. Group camping and cooking equipment as well as all gear for your activities is provided. Just let us know what activities interest you and how much time you have and we'll help plan a memorable trip, custom designed to your needs. Choose from the activites below

Level of difficulty: Easy to moderate, beginners welcome. Includes knowledgeable guides, comprehensive paddling instruction, all necessary kayaking gear, lunch and shuttle transportation.
Mountain Biking Local Trails
A variety of options exist for Mt. Biking in the Tahoe area. Ranging from easy all downhill rides to rigorous uphills that reward your efforts with stunning views. Distance and Time: Approximately 8-15 miles, 10 am to 3:00 pm. Level of difficulty: Easy to Difficult.
