Tours & Activities in Saskatchewan

• A WorldWeb.com Travel Guide for Saskatchewan, Canada.
With a landscape ranging from flat prairies to rocky cliffs, the province of Saskatchewan offers diverse scenery. As visitors tour around Saskatchewan's regions enjoying captivating urban and rural backdrops, they can embark on a medley of entertaining activities and tours.

REGINA & SASKATOON

As visitors explore Saskatchewan's capital city of Regina, they won't be hard pressed to find an exhilarating or relaxing activity to try. Hiking, golfing, fishing, swimming, skating and watching a Saskatchewan Roughriders game are just a few of the activities to do in Regina.

A popular recreational spot in the city centre is the leafy, landscaped Wascana Centre, which is an outlet for a wide range of activities such as boating, jogging, ice skating, cross-country skiing and tobogganing. Wascana Lake, the Saskatchewan Provincial Legislative Building and the University of Regina are just some of the attractions inside the massive park.

Northwest of Regina is Saskatoon, which offers a variety of attractions as well as beautiful parks at which to soak up the sunshine. Like Regina, Saskatoon offers a spectrum of activities such as swimming and hot tubbing at the Shaw Centre or twirling around on the shiny ice at the Meewasin Skating Rink. The city abounds with meticulously well-kept golf courses like the 36-hole Willows Golf and Country Club. Fishing, hunting, cross-country skiing, canoeing and rafting are just a few of the exciting ways visitors can enjoy the gorgeous countryside surrounding Saskatoon.

CENTRAL SASKATCHEWAN


The West Central Region offers something for everyone, from history buffs to outdoor adventurers. The border city of Lloydminster gives visitors the chance to stand in two provinces at once with one foot in Saskatchewan and one in Alberta. It offers several shops, restaurants and attractions, but also a multitude of recreational opportunities such as golf at the lush, green Lloydminster Golf and Country Club. North Battleford and Battleford feature a range of activities from zip lining to dog-sled tours.

Guided snowmobile tours, fishing and hunting trips are just a few ways to see the fascinating landscape of the East Central Region. Nature lovers visiting this part of the province will be delighted with the birdwatching opportunities on the various trails, boardwalks and observation platforms at Wadena Wildlife Wetlands on Little Quill Lake. Although the East Central Region features an array of outdoor activities, there are also several indoor activities to enjoy on cold days, like bowling in Nipawin or swimming in the indoor wave pool at the Gallagher Centre Water Park in Yorkton.

SOUTHERN SASKATCHEWAN

A drive through the wide open prairies of the southwest region of Saskatchewan is truly mesmerizing with the gently rolling landscape and infinite sky. The largest centres in this region are Moose Jaw and Swift Current, which both offer a variety of fun activities and tours. In Moose Jaw, visitors can learn about the city's connection to Chicago on the Tunnels of Moose Jaw Tour or indulge in a bit of R&R in the soothing Geo-Thermal Pool at Temple Gardens Mineral Spa. In Swift Current, guests can gain insight into the city's historical buildings on a Downtown Walking Tour or go for a stroll or bike ride on the Chinook Pathway, an 18-km (11-mi) stretch that follows the Swift Current Creek.

Well beyond the borders of Moose Jaw and Swift Current, hiking and cross-country skiing in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park (in Maple Creek) and fishing and boating on Lake Diefenbaker (in Elbow) are just a few of the inspiring activities to try in the wider southwest region.

The southeast region's scenic landscape of grasslands and dense forests attracts thousands of visitors year round. City dwellers will enjoy the urban amenities in Estevan and Weyburn as well as the numerous surrounding natural attractions to explore. Moose Mountain Provincial Park, Echo Valley Provincial Park and Buffalo Pound Provincial Park are among the parks where visitors can admire the region's topography while hiking, biking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.

NORTHERN SASKATCHEWAN

Enchanting boreal forests, over 100,000 lakes, sandy beaches and top-notch fishing are only some of the perks to visiting Saskatchewan's expansive north. Canoe, hiking, bicycle and snowmobile tours are among the ways to appreciate the spectacular beauty of the province's northern region.

Prince Albert, the largest city in northern Saskatchewan, offers urban amenities and the allure of the north's great outdoors. Not far from Prince Albert is Prince Albert National Park, which is a great spot for fishing, boating, swimming, hiking and wildlife watching. Northwest of Prince Albert and close to Alberta is one of Saskatchewan's largest provincial parks, Meadow Lake Provincial Park. Dotted with lakes, Meadow Lake Provincial Park is good for hiking, horseback riding and many more activities. Lac La Ronge Provincial Park, two and a half hours north of the city, is abundant with northern pike, walleye and lake trout. The remote Athabasca Sand Dunes Provincial Park is one of the most northerly set major dune fields in the world. Although access to the dunes is difficult (there are no roads in the park), the prime fishing opportunities, wildlife, rare vegetation and intriguing, untouched desert landscape make the extra effort to get there well worthwhile.
