Stand-up paddle boarding has become a very popular sport. Lake Tahoe has been very instrumental in growing it. There are many areas
around the lake to rent paddle boards and picturesque spots to explore, especially on the eastern side of the lake. Throughout most of the year,
the peaks around the lake are covered with snow. So beautiful!
Paddleboarding (SUP) has become very popular. An offshoot of surfing originating in
Hawaii, stand up paddleboarders stand on
their boards and use a paddle to move through
the water. Since the water temperature of
Lake Tahoe is typically very cool or cold, it
might be advised to wear a wet suit. As an alternative, a participant may want to kneel on
their board and paddle with their arms. Looks
Kayaking has also been a popular activity
along the shores of Lake Tahoe. If you've
never done it (or stand up paddleboarding) before, there are rental companies who can teach
you how to do one or the other, offer day long
tour opportunities to paddle along the shores
with a guide or instructor. There are even
sunset tours for a truly unique experience!
If you prefer to remain on solid ground,
there are many activities for you, as well.
Bring your mountain bike or rent one. There
are miles and miles of trails to follow. Some
are paved. Others are not. Some are very
steep, and at higher elevations. These are the
sons at Granlibakk
lodgiing, meetings, sledding, skiin
ng, and more!
