Introducing Saskatchewan

Welcome to the 'Land of the Living Skies,' where proud locals are quick to correct the misconception that Saskatchewan is all flat. It's a place of rolling hills and coulees, sand dunes, rivers, forests and golden prairies stretching on forever beneath breathtakingly photogenic skies.

Friendly Saskatchewanians see more sunshine than any other province. Numbering one million, they're spread over small communities separated by vast swaths of land and sky, buffeted by long, harsh winters: no wonder they're happy to see you! If you're looking for impersonal big-city excitement, move on.

Come to Saskatchewan for awe-inducing landscapes and the warmth of her people. Get off the beaten track, run up a hill and hear your heartbeat through your chest in the all-pervasive silence and enveloping isolation of the vast prairies. And don't forget your camera – studies in light and color don't get better than this.
