Saskatchewan, Canada

The province of Saskatchewan in Canada is a perfect example of unspoiled wilderness, filled with sand dunes, prairie lands, and wild forests.  

Southern Saskatchewan is known for its open prairie landscape, agriculture, and cowboy lifestyle. Here you will find the opportunity to experience ranch life up close at a real working cattle ranch. Spend your days horseback riding through the countryside or enjoying a wide range of ranch activities, including roping cattle, lasso tying or barrel racing. Truly an authentic cowboy experience!

Northern Saskatchewan is made up of thousands of lakes outlined by lush forests, making it the ideal fishing destination. The parkland region — a transition zone between forest and farmland — is where you'll find some of Saskatchewan's finest parks, including Prince Albert National Park. Lakes are everywhere and trophy fishing for northern pike, lake trout and walleye is abundant.

Northern Saskatchewan waters also make it a mecca for wilderness canoeing. Rivers such as the North Saskatchewan and Churchill offer an opportunity to explore this remote wilderness and follow in the footsteps of explorers and indigenous peoples.

In the northwest corner of Saskatchewan along the south shore of Lake Athabasca lies the largest sand dunes in North America — the Athabasca Sand Dunes. These dunes are one of the most unforgettable landscapes in Canada and well worth the visit.
