Rolling grassland as far as the eye can see. Saskatchewan’s landscape lacks drama, but its warm people and beautiful flatlands offer something for everyone. Its sparse population adds to the serene, almost surreal, feeling of being the only person in the world.

Saskatchewan is home to several provincial parks – 35 to be exact – and more than 100 recreational sites. From golfing to fishing and camping, there’s a park for every visitor.
The province also houses several historic parks, like the Cumberland House, which was the site of Hudson’s Bay Company’s first inland site. Over at Cannington Manor, visitors can explore the village that tried to recreate the aristocratic English lifestyle.

Regina, the province’s capital city, is a must-stop on your trip. Offering beautiful architecture and a rich culture, the city offers a multitude of art galleries, museums and science centers. Regina is also home to a century-old symphony orchestra.
Saskatoon, the largest city in the province, offers a four-season climate and plenty of things to see and do.
For outdoor enthusiasts, Saskatchewan offers something for every season, with lush forests and plenty of hiking trails to explore.
From canoeing to biking, boating, hiking, wildlife viewing, horseback riding and everything in between, there’s no shortage of outdoor activities in this province.
