Snowshoe Star Tours

Snowshoe Star Tours
Snowshoeing Under the Night Sky with our Professional Astronomer!

Star gazers unite! Tahoe Adventure Company and Tony Berendsen present: Telescopic tours of the midnight sky. This fusion brings you the most dynamic tour of the winter. It all starts with guided sunset snowshoeing, followed by a brilliant tour of the midnight sky.

Our knowledgeable guides will teach you about the natural and human history of the area, while you watch the sun cast a purple alpenglow onto the Sierras. You will trek on our easy to use snowshoes through Tahoe's peaceful, wintery forest. You will be guided to a viewing point, where Tony will open your mind to the unknown world above you. Hot drinks and snacks will be served as our Star Tour begins.

For the past 15 years, award winning astronomer Tony Berendsen has exposed the superlative Sierra skies to many lucky people throughout California and Nevada. In addition to his tours, he is currently the President of the Northern Nevada Science Coalition and previously was the President of the Astronomical Society of Nevada. His large aperture telescopes will take you into the unfamiliar mysterious world that blankets the Sierra Nevada.

Let us guide you to Saturn and back again! Give us a call today to book space on this fantastic trip. This tour is great for kids, teens, and adults ~ so bring the whole family!
