- A real-life castle in the middle of Tahoe
- The photo opportunities are endless
- If you go mid-week, you may have the place all to yourself
The drive to the location of Vikingsholm was beautiful with spectacular views of Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay, when approached from South Lake Tahoe. The hike down the hill to see this gem was worth it but could be hard for some (because the only return is up this somewhat steep path with switchbacks). But this is a well preserved site and well worth the effort to make the climb. The extra cost to take the guided tour of the house is worth it...if you can afford it. There is a small beach and it is a great vantage point for seeing the paddle wheelers coming into the Bay to turn around.
