Tour description provided by Viator

Savor views of beautiful Lake Tahoe from an unbeatable vantage point -- on a helicopter tour! Savor the unspoiled beauty of remote beaches and the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range on your thrilling 30- or 45-minute flight. Choose the route you take and capture views of Emerald Bay, Meeks Bay, King's Beach, Incline Village, the Nevada Stateline, Horsetail Falls, Lover's Leap and more.

Departing from the South Lake Tahoe Airport, board a state-of-the-art helicopter and begin your exhilarating Lake Tahoe helicopter tour. Every seat is a window seat, and your 3- to 5-passenger chopper comes equipped with leather seats and noise-reduction headsets, so you can enjoy your flight in comfort without any unnecessary noise.

Standard Tour: After heading north to the shoreline, veer west toward Camp Richardson and circle fabulous Emerald Bay before continuing along Lake Tahoe’s western shore past Meeks Bay and Tahoe City.

Turning east, fly past King’s Beach, Incline Village and the Cal-Neva Resort, and then continue southward, where you’ll be afforded vistas of Cave Rock, Zephyr Cove and the casinos along the Nevada Stateline.

Sand Harbor Tour: Heading north, fly to the Nevada Stateline and on to breathtaking Glenbrook Bay, Secret Harbor, Skunk Harbor and Chimney Beach. Then, it's to Sand Harbor – arguably Lake Tahoe’s most stunning beach.

Waterfall Tour: Heading north, fly to the shoreline and circle Emerald Bay and Eagle Falls before traversing the rugged granite hillsides of the Desolation Wilderness, Cascade Falls, Fallen Leaf Falls and Echo Lake. Capture up-close views of 800-foot (244-meter) Horsetail Falls and the sheer granite faces of Lover’s Leap, a virtual mini-Yosemite.

End your Lake Tahoe helicopter ride back at the South Lake Tahoe Airport.
