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.
