Saskatchewan Adventures

When people think of Saskatchewan, they usually think of the flat grassland that covers its southern plains. To the north the wilderness of the Canadian Shield provides the perfect setting to hike, paddle and camp. Coniferous forest, rivers and lakes cover the northern half of the province. With little urban development its easy to feel completely alone in the wild. One highlight is taking a float plane from Missinipe to paddle the Churchill River. This page has videos and downloadable guides of some of the best hikes and adventures in Saskatchewan.




Canoeing Stack Lake To Missinipe

The Churchill River in Northern Saskatchewan is the ideal location for an epic canoe trip. For our second ETA canoe trip on the Churchill we took a float plane from Missinipe to Stack Lake. With no cell service and a paper map we had 4 days and 3 nights to paddle and portage our way back.

Hiking to Grey Owl's Cabin

Grey Owl’s Cabin is in the northern part of Prince Albert National Park. This is a beautiful, challenging hike that starts at the south end of Kingsmere Lake. The hike follows the east shoreline for 20km to another smaller lake called Ajawaan Lake where lies Grey Owls Cabin.

“Far enough away to gain seclusion, yet within reach of those whose genuine interest prompts them to make the trip, Beaver Lodge extends a welcome to you if your heart is right.”

Canoeing The Churchill River

The Churchill River is over 1600km long and runs from Alberta, across Northern Saskatchewan and into Manitoba. We had the privilege of exploring 20km of it when six of us headed to Northern Saskatchewan to complete a three day loop of paddling, portaging and camping. Our adventure began at Devil Lake, a ten minute drive from Missinipe. From there we packed our canoes, left vehicles and cell service behind, and headed upstream with 3 days of unknown adventure ahead of us.
