6 Things You’ll Want to do in Saskatoon This Summer

Saskatoon is a fun, dynamic place to visit in summer with lots going on. You can feel the energy in the music and festivals, taste the local food at farmer's markets and restaurants, and experience soft adventure within the city limits. I think you'll be surprised at what Canada's fastest growing city offers. Stand Up Paddleboarding in Saskatoon I hadn't paddled 200 metres before I hear a splash. Then laughter.

Do you have a driving trip planned across Canada? Or perhaps between Winnipeg and Vancouver? If you do and you're looking for a great stop for the night or even longer, make the short detour off the Trans-Canada Highway and check out Maple Creek, Saskatchewan.

A Trip to the Quill Lakes, Saskatchewan – A World-class Birding Area

Ask just about anyone in Saskatchewan where the Quill Lakes are and chances are you’ll be met with blank stares. That was certainly our experience. Yet the Quill Lakes, located a few hours’ drive east of Saskatoon, are an International Bird Area – with over 300 species and 1,000,000 birds going through the area every year. Three large lakes make up the area – Big Quill Lake, Little Quill Lake and Mud Lake. The lakes…

A Trip to Saskatchewan’s Great Sandhills

If you can find Saskatchewan's Great Sandhill's you are in for a treat! Despite the fact they cover 1,900 square kilometres in the western part of the province, rather a large chunk of real estate if you ask me, they are difficult to find. Signage is next to non-existent until you're within spitting distance of the dunes. But don't let that deter you. The dunes and the accessible area around them are very beautiful -…

A Hike to Grey Owl’s Cabin in Prince Albert National Park, SK

Oh no was all I could think as John and I drove up to the entrance of Prince Albert National Park in mid-July. Flies bombarded our car like missiles with NO let up. And we had a 20 kilometre hike planned to Grey Owl's Cabin the next day. I hate bugs as much as the next person and although I'd brought my bug jacket, I was unprepared for the sheer number of bugs - including flies, mosquitoes…

A Hike on the Nut Point Trail, Lac La Ronge Provincial Park, SK

I didn't know what to expect on my hike on the Nut Point Trail in Lac La Ronge Provincial Park, Saskatchewan. Located just a few kilometres from the town of La Ronge, the trail follows a treed and rocky peninsula to its tip - jutting into Lac La Ronge. The trail is 15 kilometres long one way. It's best enjoyed as a backpacking trip. I tell you that from experience as I did hike 30…

Canoeing the Churchill River – Trout Lake to Missinipe, Saskatchewan

The Churchill River is a classic northern Canadian river to canoe. Starting in Churchill Lake, Saskatchewan, the river flows east for over 1,600 kilometres emptying into Hudson's Bay. It's unique in that all the water flowing in the river is Saskatchewan based, with not a drop of mountain water. The range of canoeing options is phenomenal so your best bet is to pick up a guide book on canoeing the Churchill River or even better, get…

Hiking the Mustus Peitahigan Loop in Meadow Lake PP, Saskatchewan

Hiking the Mustus Peitahigan Loop in Saskatchewan's Meadow Lake Provincial Park had not been in our plans for the May long weekend. John and I were in the park for the specific purpose of hiking the Boreal Trail. The day before we had hiked a beautiful 16 kilometre section of the trail located at the western end of the park. On the second day we planned to explore the far eastern end of the trail and then do…

Hiking the Boreal Trail in Saskatchewan – Day One

I spent a weekend in Meadow Lake Provincial Park hiking five sections of the Boreal Trail in northwestern Saskatchewan. The whole trail runs most of the length of the park, spanning a distance of about 125 kilometres. It can be done as an epic backpacking trip, but just as easily, you can hike various sections of the trail, depending on how much time you have. That's exactly what John and I did over the May long…
