Weekender: Three adventures on Tahoe's North Shore this weekend

Jenna Scatena | July 26, 2012 | Story Travel Weekend Escapes

High-altitude bliss and bash

Wanderlust Festival—the nation’s biggest yoga party— is anything but your typical yoga retreat: Rock ‘n’ roll yoga set to the tune of the Rolling Stones, discussions on dharma and technology, and a music-blasting pool party will take over Squaw Valley today through Sunday. Don’t miss the farm-to-table dinners on Friday and Saturday or the late-night outdoor concerts with the likes of Beats Antique and Ziggy Marley.

An aerial forest trek

For those who feel like they’ve seen and done everything in Tahoe, now’s your chance to get an entirely new perspective: North Shore’s newest draw is an adrenaline-inducing mix of rope courses, 13 ziplines, and a suspension bridge—all positioned in the tops of Tahoe’s towering pine trees. Granlibakken’s Treetop Adventure Park, which opened last month, is designed for children and adults. The course takes approximately two to three hours to complete.

A new view of Big Blue

You’ve seen people stand up paddle boarding by Crissy Field—braving the gusty winds and choppy waters—but here’s a more serene setting to get on board. Paddle board at dusk or under the stars with Stand Up Tahoe’s sunset or nighttime paddle board excursions at Kings Beach. Schedule ahead of time.
