Air Adventures

If you’re a big-time thrill seeker, Reno Tahoe is sure to lift your spirits. With skydiving, hang-gliding, airplane tours, and hot air balloon rides, we can match your adrenaline level beat for beat. If you prefer your feet on the ground but love to live vicariously, Reno hosts the Hot Air Balloon Races and the Reno Air Races, two grandiose sights to behold.


Land Adventures

Reno Tahoe is the place for adventure. Far from ordinary, Reno Tahoe offers a wide range of activities at an even wider range of skill levels.

When it comes to outdoor activities, it’s time to choose your own adventure: mountain biking, hiking/backpacking, horseback riding, ATV tours, rock climbing, horseback riding, backcountry adventures, Jeep or Hummer tours, or even an off-road experience on an ATV!

And if you want a day at the beach and a day on the slopes tied into one – we have the best of both worlds.


Snow Adventures

In Reno Tahoe USA, we get an average of 40 feet of snow per year. That’s a lot of white stuff! With all that snow comes countless winter activities, so bundle up, buttercup.

We have 18 different resorts for all levels of skiers and boarders. If downhill skiing isn’t your thing, maybe you would rather explore our beautiful terrain on a snowmobile or cross-country skis

We even have sleigh rides to take you through our picturesque winter landscapes. Snowshoeingor inner-tubing are always a possibility, or you can step out like an explorer with a team of dogs and your dog sled. And if you feel like ice-skating, choose from five ice rinks.


Water Adventures

Lake Tahoe, Pyramid Lake and Donner Lake are superb for enjoying the water. The Truckee and Carson Rivers provide outstanding adventure opportunities. Together they offer fabulous kayaking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, all the popular forms of open-water paddling and water-sports like skiing and sailing or an outing on a personal watercraft. Scuba-diving enthusiasts can submerge and discover hard-to-beat visibility and freshwater aquatic life.

Lake Tahoe has long been considered the “Jewel of the Sierra,” not only for its contributions to the scenic majesty of the area, but also for the adventure that can be sought throughout its 193-square-miles of beauty.
