Granlibakken is located five minutes from Tahoe City in the Tahoe National Forest. From the retreat location, Emerald Bay State Park is a 20 mile drive south and then it is an additional 52 mile drive around the lake with scenic wonders at each mile. For those who search for the cultural aspects of a region, a fifteen mile drive east will get you to the state line for the gambling and music at the Crystal Bay Club.


Granlibakken is located about an hour drive from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, serviced by major airlines such as Alaska, American, Delta, jetBlue, Southwest, and United.

The following rental car companies service the Reno-Tahoe airport:

Local shuttles cost $50.00 per person each way ($100.00 round trip). We are expecting to provide round trip shuttles for $50.00 per person.
