Gordon Ramsay has revealed he loved his visit to Lake Tahoe so much he's already planning to go back for more. The celebrity chef, who is spending the summer in Los Angeles with his family, travelled down to the California and Nevada border for a visit to the picturesque freshwater lake, which is a popular holiday destination.

While in the winter Lake Tahoe attracts visitors in their droves to experience skiing at six different resorts, in summer the lake is transformed, with beautiful beaches, hiking trails and water sports for visitors like Gordon to enjoy.

Gordon Ramsay said Lake Tahoe is "stunning" 

The Hell's Kitchen star posted a photo of himself standing in front of a private jet with the mountains and lake in the background on Wednesday, adding the caption: "Lake Tahoe… simply stunning. I'm coming back thx Gx."

Although Gordon didn't reveal what he was doing at the lake, he could have easily filled a few days having an active break with his family. There are several unspoiled beaches and coves around the lake, while fun activities like kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and sports are all on offer.

Lake Tahoe is located on the border of Nevada and California

The lake is over 400 miles away from Los Angeles, where Gordon and his family have spent the past few weeks, but would have only been around an hours' flight on their special jet. The 51-year-old could also tie in the trip with a visit to Las Vegas, where he has some five restaurants.

Although he has been enjoying spending some time with his wife Tana and their four children in the US over the summer, Gordon has announced that he has joined forces with his youngest daughter Tilly for a very special reason. The father-daughter duo are joining the This Morning team as they launch a new mission to encourage youngsters to learn how to cook. Called Big Chef, Little Chef, the series will see Gordon and Tilly travel around the UK to host cooking masterclasses with children who have been nominated by their parents or families.
