Feel The Earth Move
Lassen Volcanic National Park boasts every type of geo-thermal activity you can think of (with the exception of geysers). There are fizzing pools, popping mud pots, fumaroles and terrain that emits super-heated steam, all taking place under the shadow of the imposing Lassen Peak.
Behind The Falls
A visit to this crashing waterfall, which plunges 40 metres down a tree-shrouded rock face in a series of beautiful cascades, is a must on Shasta Cascade holidays. There's also hiking, fishing, boating and horseback riding in the surrounding State Park.
Turtle Bay Exploration Park
Straddling both banks of the Sacramento River in Redding, Turtle Bay Exploration Park covers a 300-acre area and offers educational activities that interpret the relationship between humans and nature. The Park tells the stories of the region and its people through a museum and art gallery, wildlife exhibits, forest camp, a year-round aviary, amphitheatre, and an arboretum & gardens.
Stalactites and Stalagmites
Take a 15 minute boat ride across crystal blue Shasta Lake to the Shasta Caverns, a network of limestone caves that are at least 200 million years old. These magnificent caverns feature multi-coloured fluted columns, stalagmites studded with crystals, and a clutch of cave dwelling salamanders
