Lake Tahoe

Transparent waters, big, round soft rocks, beaches fringed with conifers reminiscent of the landscapes of the world's northern extremes: Lake Tahoe offers an unexpected enclave in the heart of the Sierra Nevada. The scenic route that encircles it showcases a series of sites and landscapes that are quite simply enchanting. A picnic and a swim in the gorgeous cove of Sand Harbor, or an excursion to the mythical emigrant camp in Donner Memorial State Park are well worth a visit.
