A visual journey along northern Saskatchewan's spectacular waterways
Northern Saskatchewan's legendary waterways have it all - a compelling history, jaw-dropping scenery, plenty of adrenaline-pumping whitewater, and tranquility to soothe the soul.
Northern Saskatchewan ranks among the world's greatest canoeing destinations. Famous rivers such as the Churchill, Cree, Clearwater, Sturgeon-weir, and Fond du Lac flow through a vast forested land of 100,000 lakes. Paddling in Saskatchewan is to follow in the wake of voyageurs with fur-laden birchbark canoes, aboriginal artists who painted mystical images on riverside cliffs, and a who's who of northern exploration.
Saskatchewan is blessed with large tracts of pristine wilderness, although many wild places are endangered. Northern Saskatchewan Canoe Country showcases the beauty of the north, but it is also meant to raise awareness of our many special places and the need to protect them.
Northern Saskatchewan Canoe Country is available at better bookstores and gift shops, or directly from Parkland Publishing.
