Enter by leaving a comment below telling us your favourite place in Saskatchewan to go for a drive. A winner will be selected by a draw on June 3.

Saskatchewan’s Best Scenic Drives

Saskatchewan is tailor-made for backroad exploring. We have more roads than any province in Canada – enough to circle the equator four times! Possibilities are mind-boggling, from drives through spectacular river valleys to sweeping natural grasslands, lake-studded boreal forest, wild badlands, some of Canada’s largest sand dunes, breathtaking viewpoints, little-known hideaways, and historic treasures.

Drive a third of the way across Saskatchewan entirely in the Qu’Appelle Valley. Take a little-known backroad through the Big Muddy Badlands. Wander through the Thickwood Hills to the other-worldly Crooked Bush. Combine your drive with awesome hikes and nature walks to discover the best that Saskatchewan has to offer.

Winner of a Travel Media Award in the Saskatchewan Tourism Awards of Excellence, Saskatchewan’s Best Scenic Drives shows you the way, complete with precise directions, GPS coordinates, and over 180 colour photos.

Flat Out Delicious: Your Definitive Guide to Saskatchewan’s Food Artisans

Flat Out Delicious is a robust and inspiring travel companion for both local and visiting food-lovers alike that reveals the stories, inspiration, and friendly faces of the people who craft great food in Saskatchewan.

Author Jenn Sharp and photographer Richard Marjan spent four months travelling Saskatchewan, chatting at market stalls, in kitchens, bottling sheds, and stockrooms. Flat Out Delicious is the culmination of interviews with small-scale farmers and city gardeners, beekeepers and chocolatiers, ranchers, chefs, and winemakers. Together they tell the story of Saskatchewan’s unique food systems.

The journey is organized into seven regions (including a chapter each for restaurant hotbeds Regina and Saskatoon), with essays that delve deeper—into traditional Indigenous moose hunts, wild rice farming in the remote north, and berry picking in the south. There are profiles of over 150 artisans, along with detailed maps, travel tips, and stunning photography, making the book the ideal companion for a road trip that involves plenty of stopping to eat along the way.

  1. My daughter and I love to drive any of the backroads we come across, we never know what we’ll stumble upon. Whether is be the beautiful views or the historical landmarks like the Shiloh Church. So much to see in this province!

  2. Last year I wanted to do all things Saskatchewan, feom events to road trips. Because of Covid, it didn’t happen. Maybe this will be the year 🙂

  3. I love driving the back roads. We live in Saskatoon, so can easily head out a few hours in any direction and see so many different sights based on our mood that day. Thanks so much.

  4. If I had to pick only one, it would be the drive though Cypress Hills Park. Lots of places to stop to enjoy and take pictures, and It changes so much depending on the time of day and your direction of travel.

  5. The drive to Waskesui after you turn off highway 2 and start towards PANP. The air changes and the stress releases.

  6. The EcoRoad Tour in West Block Grasslands National Park and the Badlands Parkway in East Block National Park are mt favourites – wildlife, Frenchman River, Native prairie, and easy access to view the badlands and the Valley of a Thousand Devils.

  7. The “back way” to North Battleford from Saskatoon through the Eagle Hills. Found it thanks to your book!

  8. The Cypress Hills and the Grassland parks are the most interesting places in Saskatchewan to travel through.

  9. Prince Albert national Park is a great place for a drive.. Not too far from Saskatoon! Fishing, Hiking, wildlife, Lakes and camping are all so close to home.. Close enough to make a day trip even! So many other places but not as close .The cook book would be an awesome addition to go along with my Saskatchewan Scenic Drives 👍

  10. I love driving highways and backroads anywhere in the Qu’Appelle Valley – just feels so cozy in those hills and respect the historical significance of the valley. I just love driving! And turning onto roads I haven’t drove before💖

  11. We love travelling through the Thickwood Hills any time of year as the vistas change each time we move through it each way! Another road trip we loved was travelling round trip to Eastend from Cypress Hills and back again. (Thanks to your book!) So many wonderful places with unique scenery and hidden gems! We love spontaneously trying backroads when we have time (while geocaching too) and have found some treasured views. Our next excursion is going to be the route to Battleford, Meeting Lake to Chitek Lake via Eagle Creek way. We tried last year but never actually made it. This is the year! Totally have enjoyed all your books and the information you have given to encourage exploring (easy/harder) of our province!

  12. Love to drive a big crop tour and cattle ranchs mostly the awesome scenery Hopefully things open up by August we are hoping for another road trip from ontario

  13. A lovely day trip we enjoy driving is from Saskatoon on 219 south to Gardiner Dam in Danielson Provincial Park.
