The views from the parking lot are stunning. Unobstructed views of Emerald Bay. The path down to Vikingsholm is about a mile, downhill. So the walk back up is all uphill but worth it. There are tours of the home although they hadn't started when we were there just before Memorial Day. There is a beautiful, short hike to Lower Eagle Falls. Spectacular all around! There is a fee for the area, 5 or 10 dollars, as is the case for many areas around Lake Tahoe.
