The true treasure of Tahoe is in its kaleidoscope of natural beauty and the unique possibilities to experience these marvels. Lingering over a lake view at sunset is essential to any visit, as is discovering the vistas of a mountain peak. Visitors enjoy breathtaking views along Sierra Nevada ridges by gondola, sky tram, hot air balloon, or their own two feet. Kayaks, sail boats, and paddleboat cruises allow a more intimate experience of the lake. Interactions with Tahoe's natural wonders can come in many forms, from snowshoeing treks under a full moon to a soak in natural hot springs.
