The best way to see Lake Tahoe, hands down, is to see it by helicopter. 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 are skilled in knowing stunning flight patterns that showcase Lake Tahoe's pristine wilderness and jaw-dropping beauty. But it is their Robinson R44 Raven II with its bubbled windows that really brings awareness to our treasures like Emerald Bay, Fallen Leaf Lake, Desolation Wilderness, Crystal Bay and Sand Harbor. Their tours are daily and trips range in duration from ten minutes to an hour. They welcome walk-ins, though recommend calling first to check availability.
