Tour Description

Your group will begin the day by kayaking a beautiful section of coastline. We will paddle through granite boulder fields and past secluded beaches. Knowledgeable guides will outfit participants for the trip and offer a thorough kayak lesson. Once on the water, your guides will discuss lake ecology, geology and other natural and human history topics.

After lunch, we will caravan 10-15 minutes to a local trail-head where we will begin our hike into the mountains around Lake Tahoe. Natural and human histories are the focus of our hike. Knowledgeable guides will offer discussions on native plants and animals, more geology and native Washoe culture. We will stop often to enjoy spectacular views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding peaks.

This trip can also be done in reverse order should weather permit.
