Discover holidays in Saskatchewan

It doesn’t matter where you stay in Saskatchewan, you’re never far away from beautiful nature. Explore rugged badlands and pine-topped hills in the south, or journey north to the province’s lush boreal forest. The Prince Albert National Park is a must-see if you fancy spotting your very first white pelican, and of course you can’t go on a holiday to Saskatchewan without visiting the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) Training Academy to learn more about the famous ‘Mounties’. Finish your day on the beach by watching a spectacular sunset place its colourful spell on the water’s surface.

Where to Stay

Situated in west-central Canada, Saskatchewan tempts explorers and outdoorsy travellers with its sprawling green spaces, pristine lakes and numerous hiking trails. Head to the capital of the province, Regina, for some of the most important natural and cultural attractions, including the RCMP Training Academy and Heritage Centre. Or head further inland to Saskatoon, the arts, sporting and culinary hub of the region. If you’re looking for more peaceful places to stay in Saskatchewan, the small city of Moose Jaw offers great boutique shopping and art deco architecture. 

Also known as the ‘Queen City’, Regina is the capital and heartbeat of Saskatchewan. The area is a playground for nature enthusiasts who come to explore its parks and hiking paths. Hotels in Regina are also close to the jewel of the region - the world-famous Royal Canadian Mounted Police Academy.

Bisected by the beautiful South Saskatchewan River, the growing city of Saskatoon exudes a young and lively vibe. The city celebrates year-round with a continuous line-up of festivals, cultural events, performing arts and sporting competitions. Ample parklands, cultural attractions, boutique shopping and a revered culinary scene will keep you easily entertained. 

The friendly little city of Moose Jaw has a raucous past that earned it the nickname Little Chicago, attributed to the city’s rumoured connection to gangster Al Capone. Take a wander into the Heritage district for the best shopping in the area, or explore the city’s intriguing history on an interactive tour below the streets with the Tunnels of Moose Jaw. 

Prince Albert National Park is a jewel of the region, not Saskatoon as a city. It's about 2.5 hrs away from Saskatoon. Please change to:

From lush boreal forest and rolling hills to winding valleys and golden prairies, the Saskatchewan landscape is nothing short of spectacular. Located a couple of hours’ drive from Saskatoon, Prince Albert National Park is the jewel of the region. Ride on horseback through its lush terrain or look out for wolves, bears and white pelicans as you hike remote backcountry trails. Culture vultures also have their fair share of things to see in Saskatchewan, from archaeological sites pre-dating the Egyptian pyramids to traditional cadet ceremonies at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Academy.

Horseback riding is a way of life in Saskatchewan and an exciting way to explore the unspoilt terrain. Saddle up and experience the traditional cowboy lifestyle first-hand at La Reata Ranch or Historic Reesor Ranch, both of which are working cattle operations in the province’s south. In the north, ride through boreal forest on the “wild west side” of Prince Albert National Park with Sturgeon River Ranch to see Canada’s only free-ranging wild Plains bison herd within their historic range.

Your holiday to Saskatchewan isn’t complete until you’ve visited the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Academy (RCMP) in Regina. As an official Mounties training ground since 1885, the academy is considered a national treasure, and is a must-see if you’re interested in learning more about Canada’s cultural history. Discover the story of the RCMP through a range of exhibitions, motorised tours and multimedia presentations at the RCMP Heritage Centre located on the academy grounds. If you’re visiting during the summer, you can also enjoy Sergeant Major parades and the weekly Sunset-Retreat Ceremony, a stunning ceremonial spectacular with cadets clad in the famous Red Serge dress uniform. 

The spirit and the story of Saskatchewan is thousands of years in the making, beginning with the Aboriginal peoples. Explore their traditional ways of life and relationship with the land at Wanuskewin Heritage Park. Located a short distance from Saskatoon, this area contains some of the most important archeological finds in North America, some which pre-date the Egyptian pyramids. Discover what life was like for these indigenous peoples, who would follow the bison and range animals across the Northern Plains. Guests are invited to taste bannock and bison stew, visit bison jumps and a medicine wheel, and watch dancers perform in full regalia.

Weather & Climate

Average temperatures: -10-30 (°C)

Saskatchewan enjoys four distinct seasons with warm summers and very cold winters.

Saskatchewan receives more hours of sunshine than any other Canadian province, meaning summers are typically warm and bright, with average temperatures hovering in the 30s in July and August. The spring and autumn seasons are slightly cooler, but it’s not unusual for temperatures to drop below 0 during the winter thanks to the Arctic winds. 


Events & Festivals

Sunset-Retreat Ceremony: Get your dose of Canadian history at this cultural event, held every July through mid-August at the RCMP Academy Depot Division in Regina, where Mounties have trained since 1885. The story of the force is told through exhibits, multimedia presentations, historical driving tours, as well as the daily Sergeant Major’s Parade where cadets are put through their paces. 

All the jazz: For ten days each summer, Saskatoon plays host to the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, which attracts over 85,000 music fans to the city each year. International artists from the worlds of jazz, blues, funk and pop participate in the event, which is now the second largest festival of its kind in Western Canada.

SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival: Watch the Saskatchewan skyline burst into colour at this annual kite flying event held in Swift Current in June. Professional kite artists and flyers from around the world attend the event, which also includes kite-making workshops, kids’ activities and live music in the evenings.
