Canada’s Sunniest Wilderness

From Swift Current to Prince Albert, Kindersley and beyond, the rolling plains of Saskatchewan are home to some of the best things to do anywhere in Canada. For the adventurous, Saskatchewan offers spectacular hiking, canoeing and fishing in its national parks, home to grazing buffalo herds and flocks of majestic birds of prey. And with Saskatchewan’s continental climate having blessed the lands with warm summers and more sunshine than any other Canadian province, there’s plenty of reason to plan for outdoor activities. Before you set out to roam the wild , take some time to get acquainted with the rich history of the indigenous people who first lived here. Top-notch cultural centres throughout the region excel at making the stories of the First Nations people come alive and are must-sees for first-time visitors and history buffs.

In contrast to the serene countryside, Saskatchewan’s cities are abuzz with life. Take Saskatoon, a city so full of charming bistros and happening nightlife that it earned itself the nickname (and a shout out from The Tragically Hip!) the Paris of the Prairies”. Additionally, the region’s propensity for amazingly fresh, local produce means you’ll find fantastic restaurants and excellent cafés in any town you might visit, from Lloydminster to Regina.

In short, sunny Saskatchewan offers the best of both worlds: idyllic countryside charms and vibrant urban culture, all rolled up into one irresistible destination.
