The Heavenly Gondola and Adventure Peak. Heavenly’s high-altitude Adventure Peak is located at the top of the Gondola at Heavenly. The first part of the adventure is simply getting there! The 2.4-mile ride up the mountainside in the Gondola to the mid-station observation platform is one trip you’ll never forget. And the panoramic views of Tahoe are simply spectacular. The second part of the adventure is the park itself, complete with restaurant, climbing wall, hiking trails and more!
Cruise the Lake in Style. Your trip to Tahoe is not complete without taking a cruise on this beautiful alpine lake. You have lots of options for this ‘must do’ activity. Both the Tahoe Queen and the MS Dixie II sternwheelers offer daytime and dinner cruises to picturesque Emerald Bay.
For sailors and romantic sunset lovers – a Tahoe / Emerald Bay Cruise on the 40’ Trimaran Woodwind I or the 55’ Catamaran Woodwind II will be a fond lasting memory. And then if you really want to spoil yourself – go aboard the 80’ Safari Rose Motor Yacht for a leisurely and pampered cruise up the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. The front desk staff at Inn By The Lake would be happy to make your cruise reservations. Meanwhile, check out details on your Tahoe Cruising options at Woodwind Cruises.
