Land of Living Skies

Perhaps the most enduring image of Saskatchewan is that of the prairie. In the summer, fields of golden wheat, barley and bright yellow canola dominate the open landscape. In the winter, a vast blue sky ascends from blankets of freshly fallen snow producing some of the most pristine and inspiring vistas in the country.

Regina, the provincial capital, is home to the legislature building the grounds of which form one of the largest urban parks in North America.

Saskatoon is a thriving city well known for hosting great family-oriented festivals including Winterfest, Folkfest and The International Fringe Festival.
