Tahoe Expo on Sept. 8-9 is a geotourism showcase collection of fun, educational, and sustainable adventures around all 72 miles of Lake Tahoe, as well as Truckee, Reno and Pyramid Lake.
Through guided Adventure Tracks, the Tahoe Expo aims to cultivate a deeper connection with the watershed and inspire visitors to realize sustainability in their lives. Each Adventure Track is made up of one to three activities including lunch, and land or water transit to and from. Each activity is hosted by local experts, organizations, and businesses from South Lake Tahoe to east of Reno.
Most of the Adventure Tracks will take place on Sept. 8, and include tours of the Upper Truckee River ecosystem by kayak, yoga classes led on paddleboards on the lake, and a photo safari to see Nevada’s wild mustangs run free on the range. There will also be a boat ride showcasing a live underwater feed from below the surface of Lake Tahoe, captured from a submarine piloted by underwater explorer and conservationist Scott Cassell. On Sept. 9, tour a “green makeover” of a local residence, or check out the 10th annual Tour de Tahoe – America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride – during which more than 2,500 cyclists will bike around Tahoe.
