What could be more fun and unique for a vacationing family than a serene kayak trip on Lake Tahoe, paddling from lodge to lodge? The Tahoe Adventure Company is offering multi-day Lodge to Lodge Kayak Get-Away packages on the West, North and East shores of Lake Tahoe along the scenic Lake Tahoe Water Trail, this Autumn. Our Sacramento area family has kayaked with them several times and it was nothing less than spectacular.
I'd recommend this for kids 12 and up, from our experience. It's perfect for teenagers.
An Autumn tour is set for October 7-10 but can also be booked for a shorter period and privately. Each tour allows families to enjoy beautiful Lake Tahoe with early morning “guided paddle tours” designed for spotting local wildlife. Tours also provide an opportunity to learn about the unique natural and human history of the “lake in the sky.”
By afternoon kayaking families will arrive at their lakefront hotel for a hot shower, a warm meal and pure relaxation.
Some of the best hotels Lake Tahoe has to offer have been selected for the tours including: Sunnyside Lodge, Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort and the Hyatt Regency.
“We are really thrilled to offer these first multi-day lodge based kayak trips at Lake Tahoe,” said Kevin Hickey, owner of Tahoe Adventure Company. “It’s the perfect way to experience the shoreline of this fabulous lake while enjoying comfortable accommodations in fine hotels.”
Hickey explained that after individuals check in to their resort, they can book a massage, take a walk on the beach or relax by the pool.
The two, three or four-day kayak adventure is a luxurious way to enjoy a long, fun filled family vacation weekend and celebrate the changing season. Autumn at Lake Tahoe offers warm sunny days and calm waters. Summer crowds are gone. We were just there last weekend and while the weather was gorgeous and warm, we felt we had the best of summer weather and absolutely no crowds, It was like having the lake to ourselves.
Each Tahoe Adventure Company paddle provides thorough instructions by guides who are knowledgeable about wildlife, geology, ecology and native peoples. All kayaking is at a leisurely pace, providing plenty of time to enjoy the sites and the crystal clear water of Lake Tahoe.
The Lodge to Lodge Kayak Adventures begin after an excellent breakfast each morning and all trips are suitable for beginners. The day’s adventure ends in the afternoon with comfortable accommodations and meal options at local restaurants.
Autumn Kayak adventures are priced starting at $390. For more information or to make a reservation, visit TahoeAdventureCompany
