Private jet charter and flights to Saskatchewan
Often described as being the breadbasket of Canada, Saskatchewan has vast swathes of agricultural land. But it’s not all wheat, oats and flax in this rolling province. There are some hidden natural wonders like huge boreal forests, mineral-rich lakes, meandering rivers and even the northernmost active sand dunes in the world. Then there are the growing but delightfully laid-back cities and uniquely quirky towns that you’ll visit along the way. Get a fast quote with Air Charter Service and charter a private jet today.
Although not the biggest city in Saskatchewan, Regina is the centre of the provincial government and a stop on the continent-crossing Trans-Canada Highway. It’s not a large city but it’s easy to fill a few days here. You meet Scotty – the skeleton of one of largest Tyrannosaurus Rex discovered in the world – at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, get hands-on at the Science Centre or and learn more about Canada’s iconic mounties at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Heritage Centre. There are also plenty of green spaces in Regina including the Wascana Centre, one of the largest city parks in North America.
For a proper Saskatchewan welcome, head to the quaint city of Moose Jaw which is known as the ‘Friendly City’. Keep an eye out for the city mascot, Mac the Moose (at over 10 metres tall it’s quite hard to miss him), and wander along city streets in the shadow of grand buildings that date back from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Head underground into the Tunnels of Moose Jaw and discover the hiding place of infamous historical figures such as Al Capone.
Outside southern Saskatchewan’s urban areas, it gets wonderfully wild and beautiful. In the southwest corner, you can visit the Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park which straddles the border with Alberta. It’s home to the highest point in the province and a mix of evergreen forests, prairie lands, buttes and cliffs. A little further east is Grasslands, one of the two national parks in Saskatchewan. The park is split into two areas – the east and west blocks. The western section is the most visited and has the prettiest landscapes like the flat-topped 70 Mile Butte which is reached by a 2-mile round-trip hike and has incredible views of the Frenchman River Valley.
The central swathe of Saskatchewan is largely dominated by agricultural land where almost half of Canada’s crops are grown. However, surrounded by the fertile fields is the Saskatoon where you can taste a slice of lively urban life in one of the least densely populated provinces in the country. The city sits on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River and is heaven for those who love art, food and drink (particularly craft beer), museums and historical trails. Just a few of the highlights include the Remai Modern, an incredible new art gallery featuring many works by Picasso; the Wanuskewin Heritage Park where you can discover thousands of years of history of the Northern Plains people; and the river itself which is the perfect place to canoe, stand-up paddleboard or kayak on a hot summer’s day.
Like Manitoba, the neighbouring province to the east, Saskatchewan’s northern reaches are relatively untamed and barely populated. The most visited spot in the region is Prince Albert National Park where the prairie meets dense boreal forests, rushing rivers and deep lakes. The park is known for its large herds of free-roaming bison, and people head here in relatively high numbers to hike or ride the backcountry trails or head out onto the water. Travel further north and you’ll escape the crowds completely. Only a few hardy anglers and wilderness travellers head up to the likes of Lac La Ronge Provincial Park, or Athabasca Sand Dunes Provincial Wilderness Park where you’ll find the world’s northernmost active sand dunes.
The province is served by international airports in Regina and Saskatoon as well as many smaller airfields in cities like Moose Jaw and Prince Albert.
