A battle site of the North-West Resistance of 1885, the last military conflict on Canadian soil, is situated at Steele Narrows, near Loon Lake. Travel to historic Stanley Mission, where stands the oldest building in the province, Holy Trinity Anglican Church (built during 1854 to 1860).

Take in a tour of wild rice plants in La Ronge or Creighton. Learn about natural gas on a tour of Beacon Hill Compressor Station in Pierceland. Prince Albert, Saskatchewan’s oldest city, offers a full complement of accommodations and attractions. This northern city has been home to three Canadian prime ministers.
