Lake Tahoe, Mountain Biking, Paddle Boarding Tour

Lake Tahoe, Mountain Biking, Paddle Boarding Tour | undefined

Join AMGA certified mountain guide Jim for a pedal and paddle adventure at Lake Tahoe in the gorgeous Sierra Nevada mountain range of California, open to cyclists and paddlers of all levels.

Sierra Nevada (California)

1 Day

Apr - Aug




Famous for its beautiful landscape, Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada mountain range of California is a wonder to behold. However, beyond its beauty it is also home to one of the most scenic bike routes in the world, the Flume trail. This amazing trail runs along Lake Tahoe’s eastern shore, and is full of tremendous views of the stunning lake water below.

The altitude of the trail runs at a steady 2,316 metres above sea level. Thus amplifying the great views you will receive. It is also not that difficult to ride. As a result, it is very accessible to cyclists of every biking level.

What makes this day trip so exciting is that the biking portion is just the first part because when you near the end of the trail, you will then be transported down to the Sand Harbour State Park. Once you reach the park, we will stop for some lunch. Afterwards, you will get to have a great time on the beautiful water of Lake Tahoe on a paddle boat. Hence providing you with a relaxing conclusion to an amazing trip.

The fame that Lake Tahoe has attained is definitely well deserved. It is a stunning body of water, and offers the kind of natural scenery most people dream of. And on this trip, you will have the chance to enjoy that scenery from above on a bike, and on the water itself on a paddle boat. And because of the minimal difficulty level, this trip is open to just about anybody.

If that sounds like something you want to experience, all you have to do is send me a request.

I also offer a more challenging version of this pedal and paddle trip as well. On this trip, advanced cyclists will definitely experience a much greater thrill.
