"Ultimate ½ Day Tahoe Tour"
The half day tour departs at 9:00 am, and focuses on the best of Tahoe’s South and West Shore areas. We will begin our tour at a beautiful secluded Tahoe beach, shadowed by the Grand Daddy of all Tahoe Peaks, Mt. Tallac. This area is also a wildlife sanctuary, and you be able to view and photograph many species of local birds, mammals, and possibly even Bears.
As the mountains and lakes beckon, we will continue our journey to back country lakes and beyond to spectacular waterfalls. Above the falls, another high country lake awaits our arrival. We will then climb 2,000 feet above Tahoe to a high country ridgeline, which gives you an amazing view of Lake Tahoe, Fallen Leaf Lake, Mt Tallac, and the surrounding High Sierras.
When in season, you will then be taken to see the amazing Tahoe Kokanee Salmon run.
We then move on to one of the most photographed locations in North America, Emerald Bay. You will be taken to secret spots where the allure, beauty, and photographic opportunities are timeless. These areas are priceless, and offer a great vantage point to cultivate your imagery. More incredible waterfalls await, as we explore the natural beauty of this glacier carved masterpiece from many different spectrums.
"Around The Lake Tour"
This Seventy-two Mile drive is known as one of the most beautiful drives in America! As the mountainous scenery unfolds photo opportunities abound. When possible, this tour includes many of the locations in our half day tour and much more. Leaving the South Shore areas, our next location is one of the most photographed spots in the world “Emerald Bay”. Emerald Bay’s deep green water is the site of the only island in Lake Tahoe, Fanette Island. The small structure atop the island is the teahouse, built by Luara Knight, who also constructed a 38-room Scandinavian castle built in 1929, located at the beach in Emerald Bay.
Our journey continues as we wind around to the West shore of Lake Tahoe. Just a few miles past Emerald Bay is one of the spectacular Tahoe beaches, and when in season, we take a short hike on Tahoe’s best hiking trail where the beautiful colors in the water will make you think you are in the Caribbean.
As we continue down the West shore there are famous Tahoe Mansions, as well as the home where they filmed Godfather 2. As we enter into North Lake Tahoe, we will stop at a special location where often 5 pound trout are present. As we continue around the Lake we will pass by and stop if desired at the Cal-Neva Lodge. This property was once owned by Frank Sinatra with his elusive ties to the mob. There are secret tunnels underneath this property where famous people like Marilyn Monroe, The Rat Pack, JFK, and many others used to stay out of public view. As we enter into Incline Village we will drive down to area where many of the homes start in the 50 million dollar range.
We will then climb a 9,000 foot pass where you will have unparalled views of the entire Lake and surrounding areas. Leaving Incline Village we will drive by the famous Ponderosa ranch, where Bonanza was filmed for many years. A minute from Incline village is another spectacular stop, where the huge rocks, amazing water color, and overall beauty exemplify is what Tahoe is known for.
