Your ride around the lake will include panoramic bluff views across the expansive clear waters of the lake, endless numbers of clean pristine sandy beaches with gentle lapping waves to swim in, quaint small villages that have been catering to the needs of travelers for over a hundred years, and the best part of all, it is a loop tour.
