Guided Snowshoe Tours

Guided Snowshoe Tours
Many excellent guided snowshoeing options exist in the mountains of the greater Lake Tahoe and Truckee region. Whether you are looking for a leisurely naturalist led walk, or a more strenuous ascent of a nearby peak, the Tahoe Adventure Company can arrange it. Your guide will offer fascinating natural and human history information along the way as well as complete instruction and safety information.

All guided snowshoeing treks offer a taste of the solitude and quiet that defines winter in the Tahoe Truckee area. Guided Tour options can include amazing vistas of Lake Tahoe, views into the surrounding wilderness and the tranquility of a snowy forest. Experience the beauty of Tahoe's high country that can only be accessed on foot! If you are looking for more of a challenge, you can continue to the top of one of our nearby peaks for panoramic views that can't be beat. Many options exist for every ability level. Trail-heads are based on the group's activity level as well as snow pack. Snowshoeing is suitable for children age 8 and up.
