Pick your pleasure on the plains of western Canada

Sitting on the banks of the Saskatchewan River, Saskatoon is a gem that shines with natural beauty and cosmopolitan sophistication. With seven bridges spanning the waterway, the province’s largest city is a major stop on the Yellowhead Highway, the main route to Alaska from the east. If you’re crossing Canada, “Bridge City” is worth more than an overnight stay.

Saskatoon enjoys more sunlight per year than any other Canadian City, and visitors can soak in the rays along the Meewasin Valley Trail, which winds through Saskatoon along the South Saskatchewan River. Make a stop at the Meewasin Valley Centre, a local culture and history museum.

Another way to see Saskatoon is on a scenic river cruise. Take a ride on the Prairie Lilly riverboat, which offers dinner cruises and fantastic sightseeing.


Head to Saskatchewan River Basin to beat the summer heat. Check out the River Landing, a waterside complex of stores and restaurants designed with a focus on the area’s geography and cultural heritage. Catch a tour of the palace-like Delta Bessborough Hotel, built in 1927.

Learn about the city’s Eastern European influences at the Ukrainian Museum of Canada, where the home country is recreated in vivid detail. The Western Development Museum, meanwhile, features 1910 Boomtown, an indoor recreation of early 20th-century Saskatoon with 30 historical buildings.

Learn about the region’s rich First Nations past at Wanuskewin Heritage Park, just north of Saskatoon.
