Join our park interpreters for a guided hike on one of our beautiful trails. Staff will educate users on local flora and fauna, ecosystems and touch on topics such as preservation, environment and trail safety. Guided hikes are a great way to gather more in-depth information about nature and Saskatchewan’s natural history. Please sign up in advance at the Visitor Centre, Entry Gate or Administration Office (look for specific information in the park you are visiting). Please note, physical distancing guidelines will be maintained during all guided hikes, and group sizes are limited to 8 participants.

Canoe / Kayak
With hundreds of lakes located throughout Saskatchewan Parks, the opportunities for paddling adventures are endless. Whether you are looking to enjoy a relaxing afternoon spent canoeing, kayaking, or paddle-boarding, or are up for more of a challenge (say, a multi-day canoe trip?), we’ve got you covered!
See our Saskatchewan Provincial Parks Trails pages for a full listing of water routes.
To avid canoeists and kayakers, northern Saskatchewan ranks as one of the world’s greatest adventure destinations. The Churchill River crosses Saskatchewan north of the 55th parallel, with some of the most exhilarating whitewater around. Over 30 routes run through Lac La Ronge Provincial Park, many of which are part of multi-day routes.
Meadow Lake Provincial Park
Meadow Lake Fresh Air is your go-to site for paddling routes. Organized from west to east, choose your next paddling adventure based on the most outdoorsy adjectives we’ve seen in a long time!
Moose Mountain Provincial Park
These routes are recommended for novice paddlers and will take four to eight hours.
From fly fishing in Cypress Hills and Narrow Hills to catching world record rainbow trout at Lake Diefenbaker, to getting the big one in Meadow Lake, some of the best fishing takes place in Saskatchewan parks.

Geocaching, Night and Nature Caching
Night Caching - a spin-off of the popular activity, Geocaching! Use flashlights to find hidden reflective pins, called fire tacks, that will guide you on a course through nature to find clues and solve a riddle. Fire tacks will shine back at your eyes brightly when a flashlight is pointed at them. Follow specific posted instructions for details on navigating through the course using the fire tacks. This activity must be enjoyed after dusk. Please bring enough flashlights for each member of your group.
Nature Caching - another modified version of Geocaching. Visual clues such as flags or pictures are used instead of GPS coordinates to guide users through a short trail to find clues. Nature Caching is easy for young children to enjoy as an alternative to traditional GPS-focused Geocaching. Follow specific posted instructions for details on navigating through the course. Don’t forget your hiking essentials such as insect repellent and a water bottle!
