Saskatchewan, Canada

Overview

The Saskatchewan is a perfect example of the unspoiled Canadian wilderness, rich in sand dunes, prairies, and lakes that are a paradise for adventurers.

Southern Saskatchewan is known for its open prairie landscape, agriculture and cowboy lifestyle. Here you will find the opportunity to visit a real working cattle ranch and experience ranch life first hand. You can spend your days horseback riding through the countryside or stay at the ranch for a multitude of activities including roping cattle, lasso tying or barrel racing. This is an authentic cowboy experience.

Northern Saskatchewan is made up of thousands of lakes and millions of acres of forest, making it the ideal fishing destination. The parkland region, which is a transition zone between the forest and farmland, is the location for some of Saskatchewan's finest parks, including Prince Albert National Park. Lakes are everywhere and with limited road access to them, trophy fishing for northern pike, lake trout and walleye is abundant.

All of this water also makes the area a mecca for wilderness canoeing. Rivers such as the North Saskatchewan and Churchill offer an opportunity to explore this vast remote wilderness and follow in the footsteps of explorers and Aboriginal peoples who used these rivers for centuries.

In the northwest corner of Saskatchewan, along the south shore of Lake Athabasca lies the largest sand dunes in North America, Athabasca Sand Dunes. These dunes are one of the most unique wilderness landscapes in Canada and a trip to the Dunes is one that you will never forget.
