With more days of sunlight annually than any other Canadian city, Saskatoon is a year-round destination that is beloved by inhabitants and visitors alike. This city is an integral part of the prairie province of Saskatchewan and is home to a host of activities that will capture the imagination.
Located on the shore of the South Saskatchewan River, lovers of the outdoors will feel at home in here. Ramble along the Meewasin trail which snakes alongside the river or visit one of the scenic provincial parks to enjoy a host of outdoor activities including hiking, boating and swimming. For those who enjoy a more leisurely pace of life, the city is full of leafy parks where you can take advantage of the famous sunshine.
Full of hidden treasures, Saskatoon also comes alive in the colder weather. The local music scene is thriving – covering every genre from rock to country - and this proud heritage will always be there to entertain. Alternatively, warm yourself up by lacing up your skates and gliding across Canada’s largest outdoor rink or enjoy the uniquely Canadian activity of snowshoeing on the river valley.
The unique culture of Saskatoon is an integral part of the city’s charm, and the museums and galleries are alive with exhibits exploring the past, present and future. With over 65 festivals annually, the arts scene is continuously reaching new heights and delights visitors year after year.
The neighbourhoods within the city limits will open your eyes to new ways of life. Trendy localities are part and parcel of Saskatoon’s charm – the historic Broadway District, for example, will always keep visitors coming back for more. Each area is full of national retailers, unique boutiques and quirky speciality stores, meaning you can always indulge in some well-deserved retail therapy.
The nightlife is in abundance in Saskatoon. The city streets are alive with fusion – unique restaurants, craft breweries and high-end bars can be found on every corner.
