The best way to see Lake Tahoe, hands down, is by air. Offering the opportunity to fly above Big Blue, Tahoe Helicopters provides this amazing experience via guided tours, flying lessons and aerial photography. Their highly trained pilots know the best flight patterns to showcase Lake Tahoe's jaw-dropping beauty. And their Robinson R44 Raven II with its bubbled windows really lets you get the best views of Emerald Bay, Fallen Leaf Lake, Desolation Wilderness, Crystal Bay and Sand Harbor. Their tours are daily and trips range in duration from 10 minutes to an hour. They welcome walk-ins though recommend calling first to check availability.
