6 of Saskatchewan’s Best Day Trip Spots
Located in the southwestern part of the province, Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park features a variety of activities for both the winter and summer. Enjoy skiing and snowshoeing during the colder months, or go biking, hiking, or fishing during the warmer months. Perhaps you might be interested in taking a Segway tour to experience the park in a different way.
Little Manitou Lake
If you hadn’t already been planning to visit Little Manitou Lake, you should definitely add it to your list. Due to its high mineral density (much like the Dead Sea), swimmers can effortlessly float on their backs. The best time to visit Little Manitou Lake and Watrous is during the summer, from June to August.
Prince Albert National Park
Prince Albert National Park bridges the gap between experiencing the wilderness and having access to comforts you’d never want to give up. Visitors can enjoy camping, hiking, tours, lookouts, and so much more. Be sure to keep an eye out for festivals happening there and plan your visit accordingly!
Not only is Regina the capital of Saskatchewan, but it also offers a wide variety of entertainment and excitement you won’t want to miss out on! Take a tour of Stone Hall Castle or have a leisurely stroll around Wascana Centre Park. Be sure to check out the Government House or the Royal Saskatchewan Museum to get a taste of Saskatchewan’s history.
Located toward the centre of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon is a reasonable drive from almost anywhere in the southern part of the province. Plus, it is home to places like Meewasin Valley, the Western Development Museum, and Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo, which is sure to be a hit with the kids.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Trans-Canada Highway. Although it extends across nearly the entire country, we wanted to point out some of the hot spots for those traveling through Saskatchewan. First, on the main route, we recommend stopping in Swift Current and paying us a visit here at Cypress Motors—we’d love to see you! Next, be sure to pull off in Moose Jaw before riding a little farther to Regina (see above). On the Yellowhead Highway, Saskatoon is an exceptional stopping point (again, see above) along with the multitude of cities and towns along the way.
