Saskatchewan, Canada, has an undeserved reputation as a flat and featureless expanse of prairie. In truth, the northern half of the province is covered with lakes and forests where fishing and campfires lure the city-weary traveler.
Saskatchewan's central parkland is a delight of rolling hills and aspen groves, the perfect place for trail riding in summer and cross-country skiing in winter months. Even in the south of the province, which is part of the Great Plains stretching up from Texas, the wide-open landscape conceals gems of diverse topography, historical curiosities and welcoming towns.
Saskatchewan is a paradise for hunting and fishing enthusiasts—several world records have been broken there. There's a wide variety of game—ducks, geese, deer, bison, moose, northern pike, walleye and rainbow trout—and hundreds of outfitters to help you collar them. The most northerly fishing lodge, reached only by airplane, sits near the Four Corners, where the border of Saskatchewan meets that of Manitoba, NW Territories and Nunavut. All that expansiveness gives Saskatchewan one of its best features—its expressive skies—whether you're watching a mighty thunderhead roll in from the west or lying on a rock beneath the dancing northern lights.
Saskatchewan's major cities provide a contemporary, urban experience.
