Saskatchewan at a Glance

Vast Saskatchewan is one of the last untouched prairie flat lands in the wold. Towns are few and far between, which makes it ideal for outdoor lovers and solitude seekers. Spot hundreds of gophers as you speed along a deserted highway. Stop for prime hunting during the fall, or spend your summer vacation fishing in one of the province's lovely lakes.

Outdoor lovers will be delighted by Saskatchewan's two national parks and thirty-three provincial parks. At Grasslands National Park of Canada spot eagles diving into the prairie grasses, watch bison grazing in huge packs, lay your eyes on the rare black-tailed prairie dog and listen to its strange bark. Visitors can hike through badlands, camp in the tall prairie grasses and experience the breathtaking night sky. Prince Albert National Park protects the forested regions of Saskatchewan. Hike amongst maple trees and lakes one minute and through arctic, boreal forests the next. In this private and beautiful natural setting you can camp, hike, fish and explore to your heart's content.
