Romantic activities for honeymooners
A honeymoon in Lake Tahoe is incomplete without a gondola ride. The gondola departs from the southeast side of the lake, from the village of Heavenly. The ride is as mesmerizing as the final destination, where you can take in an enchanting view of the lake. Pack a picnic hamper and dine al fresco.
Head out into the Sierra Nevada wilderness in a dog sled, making your Lake Tahoe honeymoon especially memorable by taking the sunset tour. Visitors often head to Olympic Valley to watch sunsets. Dog sledding is available during winter and spring.
Emerald Bay State Park boasts Eagle Falls, hiking trails, and Vikingsholm Castle. It also is home to the only island on Lake Tahoe, Fannette Island. Lose yourself to the panoramic views, of which there are plenty! Desolation Wilderness and Vikingsholm Trail give visitors an opportunity to spend time in the wilderness, communing with nature.
Take the aerial tram to High Camp. This ride climbs 2,000 feet from Squaw Valley. On arrival, walk along miles of hiking trails and spend some time at the Olympic Museum. If you come to Lake Tahoe during winter, you can take part in High Camp's ice skating opportunities.
If you spend your honeymoon at Lake Tahoe in summer, rent paddleboards or kayaks. The calm and clear water of the lake entices visitors to enjoy water sports.
