M.S Dixie II Sunset Dinner Cruise

262 reviews
Watch the sun slip behind the mountains on a Lake Tahoe dinner cruise aboard the M.S. Dixie II, and enjoy champagne, live music and an elegant dinner on the water. Dance to tunes from the local Steve Walker Band, see a spectacular Sierra sunset, then sit down for a freshly prepared meal. Enjoy selections like grass-fed beef or trout, organic greens, and vegetables. Finish the evening with fresh berries and cake as the first stars appear above the peaks, and Lake Tahoe’s scenic shoreline is illuminated.

A beautiful and unique example of scandinavian architecture in a spectacular beautiful setting. Great hiking trails nearby. Well worth the hike down from the parking lot.

Nice walk down to the beach with beautiful views of the bay. Keep in mind it is a steep walk back up to the parking area.

Easy trail. Downhill to get to castle. Uphill, but doable to get back to parking lot. The same trail gets you to the beach. The castle tours are currently cancelled due to covid. The castle is a house. Not a fairy tale castle. I’m just clearing that up since we were expecting something different, but to be fair, we had not done our research. Parking is available for a fee. There’s beautiful views of emerald bay from the parking lot. Plan to spend some time there taking pictures.

We were lucky to find a parking spot in the small lot but once we did we enjoyed the views, the walk down the trail, and walking around the house at the bottom. The walk back up was not as pleasant but we stopped and took a break several times on the way back up.

Even the vistas around the parking lot are stunning! Don't miss the chance to poke around the side of the roadway and take in the beauty of Emerald Bay before descending the Vikingsholm trail. It's a steep grade down (and back up!!) but the trail is clear and well marked. You can access lower eagle falls from this path too. Vikingsholm itself is very cool, with its grassy rooftops and interesting history. Mostly an easy, some moderate hiking, with gorgeous Emerald Bay views!
