Hike the Athabasca Sand Dunes in northern Saskatchewan


Hike the largest sand dunes in North America on this tour to the Athabasca Sand Dunes in Saskatchewan.   In the northwest corner of Saskatchewan, along the south shore of Lake Athabasca is an area unique to North America. The Athabasca Sand Dunes boasts the largest area of sand dunes and the biggest sand dunes in North America. You'll think you've somehow ended up in northern Africa!  Because this area is so unique and so fragile, the Saskatchewan Government preserved it as a Wilderness Park. On the wilderness trip you'll get to hike through an area that is pretty amazing! You'll get to stand on top of the biggest sand dunes on the continent. You'll see plants that only grow here. You'll understand why the Athabasca Sand Dunes Wilderness Area is being protected.

The group will meet in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. After the flight to Uranium City your guide will drive you to Lake Athabasca and launch his boat for the ride across the lake to Thomson Bay. You'll set up camp and begin hiking the area. The group will spend several days hiking to the largest dunes. Then you'll return to the shores of Lake Athabasca for transportation back to Uranium City and your flight back to Saskatoon.
