Any adventurer would dream of discovering the true treasures of nature that the Canadian province of Saskatchewan holds. In the north, the boreal forests unfold, the lakes multiply and animals such as beavers, bears and pelicans make an appearance. In the centre, the small towns are proud of their distinctive character. In the south, the magnificent Prairies await, where the plains and the wheat fields soak up the sun. With such diversity, travellers can indulge themselves and choose between the national parks, the lakes with their water activities and fishing, and the historic sites of the big cities. Lastly, there's no better way to explore the immense province of Saskatchewan than a road trip!
As in the rest of Canada, there are a number of national, provincial and regional parks in Saskatchewan, controlled by park wardens and administered by Parks Canada. It is here, in the heart of nature, that you will discover the well conserved fauna and flora, one of the main reasons for visiting this isolated province.
Saskatchewan is nicknamed the 'land of 100,000 lakes', with 22,900 mi2 of freshwater. A fisherman's dream come true, but also ideal for swimming, canoeing, water skiing, sailing, and even sunbathing, for those who prefer a bit of relaxation.
Nature lovers will be captivated by the bears in their natural habitat, the herds of wild bison, the irresistibly cute prairie dogs, and the waterfowl that migrate in the hundreds of thousands.
There are a huge number of museums and historical sites in this Canadian province, so there's no shortage of things to do and see for history enthusiasts, particularly in Regina and Saskatoon, the province's main cities.
