Province of Saskatchewan Travel Guide: 608 reviews and 1,427 photos

We visited Saskatchewan three times and were impressed by the vast plains. Specially in the summer we saw every kind of wheat and some of them were flowering as well; for instance the yellow canola and blue flax. But most of all we do like 'the living skies' above these province. Lovely !!!

But Saskatchewan doesn't mean dull and flat: there are many beautiful and hilly spots like Cypress Hills, the Great Sand Hills, Big Muddy Badlands and Grasslands National Park. Leave the highways and discover these hidden gems.

Regina is the capital of Saskatchewan and has a lot to offer to visitors. Like 'RCMP Centennial Museum', 'Government House Museum', 'Legislative Building' and 'Royal Saskatchewan Museum' which tells the story of the plains and the 'first nations' who lived here.

But on the plains we found also some very interesting smaller towns and villages like Moose Jaw, Lumsden, Fort Qu'Appelle, Val Marie, Leader, Gravelbourg and North Battleford. Without any doubt worth a visit !!

    Hi Jaap, you've really captured the essence of Saskatchewan. It's a beautiful province too often overlooked. Thanks for the tips-heading to the sand hills this weekend!

    Does anyone know how many ppl this little church seats? We are thinking of getting married in the area, and were wondering about this church.

    Fine "living sky" photo! You seem to have been very successful in seeking out fascinating little places hidden somewhere in the vast plains. I went through here once on the Canadian Pacific and loved the endless views from the train window.

    Nice job on capturing the beauty that is Saskatchewan. Having lived here all my life, you really tend to overlook what others may see as stunning. Thanks for the reminder!

    Saskatchewan has always been one province that I've been curious about visiting, as I know it's always the "underdog" of Canadian tourist sites! Good work with the tips, and your photos are fantastic!
