THE CITY OF SASKATOON
The city of Saskatoon, also known as “the city of bridges”, is located on the stunningly beautiful South Saskatchewan River winding through it. Seven bridges span the river, linking east to west. Saskatoon is an art and cultural lover’s mecca.
From the newly opened Remai Modern Art Museum, you will have no trouble filling any free time with art, culture, music, boutique shopping, coffee shops, award-winning local cuisine or outdoor activities. Close by are the Meewasin Valley trails, traversing 60 kilometres of pathways in all seasons and a host of activities and Wanuskewin Heritage Park and Gallery featuring indigenous art and culture.
