Northern Saskatchewan is a four-season playground for nature lovers. Fish, swim, hike, kayak, canoe, enjoy trail riding, cycling, cross-country skiing...the list is endless.

The region boasts of some of the province’s best snowmobile trails. The Trans Canadian Trail stretches across the north, from Meadow Lake to White Fox. Whichever activities you choose to enjoy, you’ll be surrounded by breath taking scenery. But the allure of the north doesn’t end with deep forests, soothing waters, and vast vistas.

Mother Nature also adds highlights such as limestone crevices, long stretches of white sand and legendary geographic features. You’re bound to see a wide variety of animal and bird species. The north’s many lakes and immense forested areas, along with the permeating sense of serenity, mean that birds and wildlife co-exist with residents and visitors. It is common to see deer, elk, even bears.

Camping enthusiasts will enjoy spacious campsites amid beautiful forest, while travellers seeking luxury will find it throughout the north, from lakeside resorts to one-of-a-kind accommodations at fly-in fishing camps. Take in an interpretive program or guided hike.

Enjoy golf at no less than 14 challenging courses. Experience some of the best fishing in the world. Anticipate nightfall and spend your evenings basking under the wonders of the dancing northern lights and listening to the haunting call of loons. The peace of the north will remain with you long after you leave.
