Top Tips for Visiting Saskatoon
1. Fish on the Lake
As the home of over 100,000 lakes, Saskatchewan is the ideal province to explore Canada’s natural waters. If you like to fish, this is the perfect location to sharpen your skills and try to catch some Canadian produce.
2. Attend a Festival
Saskatoon hosts around 65 festivals each year – 40 of which take place in the hot summer months. Experience this electrifying cultural hub for yourself and plan your visit around one of these eclectic events – just make sure you book your accommodation in advance as rooms tend to sell out quickly.
3. Cruise the Prairie Lilly
See the city from the water and learn about the past, present and future of Saskatoon on a cruise along the Prairie Lilly. We recommend taking a cruise at sunset for panoramic views of the city skyline. For those with a taste for the finer things in life, you can enjoy canapes, brunch or whiskey tastings onboard.
4. Explore Saskatoon’s Broadway
Perfect to discover on foot, Saskatoon’s Broadway district is packed full of artisan coffee shops, speciality retailers and a variety of dining options. This district promises to offer the ultimate urban village experience; we recommend you check out some of the live entertainment at one of the many venues that dot the street.
5. Visit the Berry Barn
Located just 10 minutes from Saskatoon, The Berry Barn is your opportunity to sample the best of the prairie province’s local produce. Sample the famous Saskatoon berries and enjoy a delicious meal in the dining room. In particular, we recommend sampling the classic mushroom cheddar chowder and the Saskatoon Berry Chicken Wings. Once you have had your fill, head to the gift shop and purchase an edible souvenir to enjoy long after you head home.
