Tahoe Adventure Co.

Tahoe Adventure Company leads high quality adventure tours with a focus on experiencing the
natural beauty of the surrounding mountains, trails and brilliant waters of Lake Tahoe. Their
knowledgeable, safe, and friendly guides offer exceptional service and strive to create a memorable adventure for those visiting the region. Whether you decide on kayaking or paddle boarding Lake Tahoe, mountain biking or hiking local trails, their many adventure activities allow them to share with you a side of Lake Tahoe few people ever experience.

In the summer of 2004, Kevin Hickey, the owner and director of Tahoe Adventure Company, guided his first guests over the clear waters and boulder fields of Sand Harbor State Park, describing the rich natural and human history of the area and promoting the idea that the best adventures are indeed human-powered.

Sixteen years later, the Tahoe Adventure Company has grown from a handful of kayaks to an entire fleet
of equipment geared towards adventure. From stand up paddle boards to mountain bikes, there is an adventure out there for everyone. They offer moonlit kayak tours, breathtaking adventures at Sand Harbor,
customized corporate and team building events and more.

Tahoe Adventure Company continues ‘Inspiring High Sierra Adventures’ by leading guided adventures
that focus on the natural and human history of the area and the scenic beauty of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
