Lake Tahoe​ Holidays

Lake Tahoe is a true year-round destination. Summer is the ideal time for watersports on the lake's sapphire-blue waters, and for catching some rays on the sandy beaches that line its shore. Winter brings perfect powdery conditions to its world-class ski resorts, meaning paradise for downhill junkies of every persuasion. And any month of the year is a good time for lapping up jaw-dropping views of snow-crested mountains while walking the area's countless trails. 

There's no disputing that the 'Jewel of the Sierras' is indeed a gem. This is one of America's largest, deepest and highest lakes, with 192 square miles of clear, deep Alpine water, surrounded not only by the stunning backdrop of the Sierra Nevadas, but by endless fresh air. All this is topped off by over 300 days of sunshine a year, making Lake Tahoe holidays the perfect fit for anyone with an appreciation of the awesome beauty this planet has to offer.

But Lake Tahoe isn't just about drinking in the views. There are a huge number of activities to choose from, and whether you want to learn to water-ski, go boating, take a balloon ride, ride on horseback through pine forests, or get a bird's eye view from a cable car, you can do it here. The walking is unmatched too, with mile upon mile of trails offering up countless stunning vistas - and if you come back often enough you can complete the entire 165-mile Tahoe Rim Trail circuit.

Once the sun has sunk below the horizon, you might simply want to relax with dinner and a drink. But for anyone after more action, the Nevada casinos lie just across the state line - proving that from the wonders of nature to man-made pleasures, Lake Tahoe holidays have it all.

Let It Snow

Snow in Tahoe

With fifteen resorts, endless sunshine, some of the deepest snow anywhere (the average annual fall is 10.4 metres) and runs ranging from Olympic-standard to beginner-friendly, Lake Tahoe holidays are tops for snow sports. Heavenly Mountain Resort is one of the area's largest resorts and has fabulous lake views and skiing amongst pine glades; Kirkwood is blessed with some of the best snow you'll find anywhere; and Sierra at Tahoe is a great family resort with a laidback vibe.

What A View

Lake Tahoe's eye-popping beauty means there are fabulous views on offer round every corner. One definitely not to be missed is from the lookout point at Emerald Bay, where you can drink in the entire stupendous sweep of the bay, which comes complete with pine forests, a mountain backdrop, and the little island of Fannette (Lake Tahoe's only one) sitting amid vivid green waters.

Take To The Water

The lake's waters are pure, clean and...refreshing. That means, while they may be more suited to a dip than a lengthy swim, they are perfect for all sorts of watersports. You can go sailing, canoeing, paddle boarding, waterskiing, wake boarding - and try out practically every other water-based sport in existence. The fishing is fabulous too - especially for kokanee salmon and trout.

Heavenly Ride

A 2.4 mile cable car ride from South Lake Tahoe up Heavenly Mountain is a must. At 9,123 feet you can stop off at an observation platform for unparalleled panoramic views over Lake Tahoe, Carson Valley (High Sierra Desert) and Desolation Wilderness. It's a ride - and a view - in a million.

Play The Tables

Lake Tahoe spans both California and Nevada, which means the 24-hour casinos of the US's gaming state are within easy reach. Big names like Hard Rock, Harveys, Harrah's and MontBleu are just across the Stateline at South Lake Tahoe, and even the gambling mecca of Reno is just over an hour's drive away.
