Welcome to La Ronge & the Far North
It's hard to believe that almost half of Saskatchewan still lies further north. This is frontier territory, the end of the paved road. If you're not skittish about extreme isolation and you're outfitted appropriately, then this is it! You'll discover tiny burgs such as Southend, and pass the vast Reindeer Lake, before arriving at the winter-only section at Stony Rapids, some 12 hours north of La Ronge. Self sufficiency here is key: make sure you maintain your vehicle, have plenty of fuel, gear and supplies, and keep your head together.
