8 Awesome Lake Tahoe Outdoor Activities to Share with Your Dad

April 06, 2022

More than 78% of Lake Tahoe’s surrounding area is public land. This includes miles of beaches, an assortment of hiking trails, a host of world-class singletracks for biking, great beaches for swimming and watersports (kayaking, paddleboarding, wakeboarding, to name a few) boating, exploring, and some really exciting cliff jumping.

With all those things to do in this famously breathtaking location, you are sure to find something to enjoy with dad this Father’s Dayf. Have a look at these options:


If you are looking for a summertime adventure on the water, a Lake Tahoe parasailing experience is the ideal way to enjoy the natural beauty of this vast alpine region. Fly high above the lake as you are pulled behind a speedboat, taking in views of the mountains and clear blue water. This is a great activity you and dad (or that special father figure) can do together since two or more people can go up at once.

Cliff Jumping

If your dad is the adventurous type he might enjoy trying cliff jumping. Sand Harbor in Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, is a fairly well known area that welcomes people of all ages to the sport since the rocks range from a few feet to around 20 feet high. You can pack a picnic or purchase food and beverages on site. There are also paddleboards and kayaks for rent.

If you are going to spend some time with dad in Lake Tahoe you will most certainly make the right decision in choosing to stay at Villa Harrah – one of the most amazing Lake Tahoe luxury villas. This grand waterfront home is on a heavenly stretch of lake coast with water so clear it sparkles like fine crystal. The home has breathtaking views of the mountains across the lake and is the ideal place for an outdoor fire by which you can gaze at the stars twinkling in the clearest sky. The home, which can accommodate up to 10 guests, features a dock for your boat, an outdoor pool, spa lounge, indoor hot tub, and sauna, just to name a few of the incredible amenities.

Wake Tubing

This is an activity that can be enjoyed by everyone. Speed across the glittering water of Lake Tahoe in a tube pulled by a boat. Tubing is terrific for those not used to much activity. Just hold on tight and enjoy the ride!

Jet Skiing

Experience Lake Tahoe by jet ski, the perfect adrenaline-pumping way to enjoy the water and exploring with dad at your own pace. You can cruise leisurely along the shoreline to admire the lakeside scenery or zoom over to Emerald Bay, one of the most popular and beautiful spots on the lake.

The Jetovator is akin to flying on a bike. Despite its impressive aerial capabilities, the Jetovator is actually incredibly easy to learn and operate. The idea of balancing over a moving pipe seems impossible, but the Jetovator provides such a stable platform, pretty much anyone can learn to use it in about 20 minutes. And when you do, you will experience the wow of this activity! It’s something dad might really appreciate.

Powered Hang Gliding

Feast your eyes on the glorious sights of Lake Tahoe from the sky in a thrilling motorized hang glider with an open cockpit. Encounter the blue water like never before with a three-hour flight. Take breathtaking videos and images and try some interactive flight lessons. This has to be one of the most amazing of Lake Tahoe outdoor activities!

Scenic Gondola Ride and Hike

For the ultimate relaxing experience, take the 2.4-mile ride up in the Heavenly Mountain Gondola to relish panoramic views of Lake Tahoe. Head to the top on the Tamarack Express chairlift with your Scenic Gondola ticket for some of the best views of Lake Tahoe. If you are up for a hike, you can access a series of trails, ranging from beginner to expert hikers.

All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Tour

Get up into the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range for some Lake Tahoe off roading. You will have a choice of two amazing locations for a two-hour ATV/Razor ride: the Rubicon Trail in California and the Pine Nut Mountains in Nevada. High elevation lakes, wilderness and picturesque scenery will greet you along the rugged mountainside trails at either destination. Perhaps dad will be up for both!
