Enjoy Our Lake Tahoe Tours from San Francisco

The iconic Lake Tahoe is among the world’s 20th oldest lakes and is over two million years old! Located on the border of California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Despite its vast history, you can easily experience this unique and tranquil alpine lake on several Lake Tahoe tours.

Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast or prefer life in the slow lane unwinding with a book or photographing the landscape on a hike, Lake Tahoe is an ideal destination to escape the city.

Whichever season you’re planning to visit, there is plenty of activities to enjoy on our Lake Tahoe trips. By summer you can enjoy the water by kayaking or stand-up paddleboard and by winter you can try skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and sightseeing!

Lake Tahoe’s majestic mountains provide a luscious landscape all year round. Breathe in the crisp morning air and rise with the sun before spending the day exploring the area. If you’d prefer to stay on the shore, rent a bike to ride the paths along the lake’s sandy shores.

For an elevated option, visitors can ride the 2.4-mile gondola to the Heavenly Mountain resort in summer or winter. Here, the whole family can enjoy hiking, tubing, ziplines, and rope courses. From the top, you’ll see vistas of Lake Tahoe, Carson Valley, and the Desolation Wilderness

If you ever tire of the beauty of tours and camping in Lake Tahoe — which isn’t likely! — those who are feeling lucky can take a trip to one of South Tahoe’s many casinos to try and hit the jackpot.

Lake Tahoe was first inhabited by the Washoe Native Americans and formed the center of their territory, which also included the upper valleys of the Walker, Carson, and Truckee Rivers. Lake Tahoe’s name is a mispronunciation that originates from the Washoe word “dá’aw” meaning “the lake.”

John C. Frémont was the first European-American to see Lake Tahoe on an exploratory expedition during 1844. His discovery led Europeans to impinge further on the land in 1858 when they located the Comstock Lode, a silver deposit just 15 miles (24 km) to the east in Virginia City, Nevada.

This led to extensive logging in the basin for timber to help structure the mines for silver extraction. The logging was so extreme, almost all of the native forest was wiped out. Business boomed as many settlers arrived in the area with industries starting up and thriving. The arrival of the transcontinental railroad in 1869 saw the lake become a popular vacation destination for the wealthy inhabitants of San Francisco, Sacramento, and Virginia City.

Today, South Lake Tahoe is the most populous city in El Dorado County, California, in the Sierra Nevada mountains and on the southern shore of Lake Tahoe. The east end of the city is situated on the California-Nevada state line and is a great destination for tourists with restaurants, hotels, casinos, and the Heavenly Mountain Resort.

Best Time to Visit

One of the reasons that Lake Tahoe trips are so popular is the mild climate that the area experiences. In fact, according to weather reports from the lake’s North and South Official Visitor Bureaus, Lake Tahoe sees sunshine almost 80% of the time!

While we can’t guarantee that all of our Lake Tahoe excursions will be brilliantly warm and sunny, the odds are in your favor. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen, even in the winter!

That said, the lake’s climate means that the warm, dry summers are complemented by chilly winters later in the season, with regular snowfall making the perfect backdrop for Lake Tahoe tours.
