kayak tahoeKayaking offers a lifetime of varied health and wellness benefits. Not only is it a great way to relax in the sun, but it’s also a fun way to strengthen your core muscles.

It’s summertime here in northern Nevada, and what better way to explore the great outdoors than by getting out on the water? Whether it’s the Truckee River or Lake Tahoe, kayaking allows you explore coastlines that aren’t accessible by land. The opportunities for kayaking are endless, whether it’s just a leisurely row or fast racing.

In just one hour of kayaking, you will burn over 350 calories, build muscle strength in your arms and receive a killer ab workout far from the walls of a sweaty gym. Plus, the consistent motion is a great way to get your heart pumping. So get out there and explore how the outdoors can make you healthier and happier!

To help get you started, we have compiled a list of local places to kayak and where to rent them as well.

Happy paddling!

  1. Sounds great. What about the Sparks Marina? Davis Lake and Frenchmans are both beautiful but you have to have your own boats.
  2. How about a "Renown" kayaking activity ... Count me in ... Getting in shape and clearing our minds on Tahoe, Great Idea
