Backroad Mapbooks’ Saskatchewan backcountry map book spans the entirety of this western province. Known for its prairies and farmland sprawling as far as the eye can see, and for the city centres of Saskatoon and Regina, the province of Saskatchewan is a gem nestled in the heart of western Canada.
With a big, blue sky that hangs above the prairies, Saskatchewan vibrates in its stillness. It is the sunniest province in Canada, and while populations gather in Saskatoon, Regina, Lloydminster and other smaller cities, up north the wilderness takes over as the prairies give way to the rugged Canadian Shield.
Your Saskatchewan map book details every natural sight in and around Saskatoon, Regina and beyond. Travel the Alberta-Saskatchewan border and visit the highest point between the Rockies and Labrador, in Cypress Hills with its lodgepole pine forests; see the shifting sands of the Great Sand Hills; or glimpse infinity as you travel the flat ribbon of Trans-Canada Highway from east to west.
With 22% of Canada’s roads concentrated in Saskatchewan, this map book is rich with opportunities for urban and backcountry exploration. With detailed information on freshwater fishing, water-based recreation, wildlife viewing, national and provincial parks, hiking and biking trails, and much, much more, your Saskatchewan backcountry map book shows you the prairies like you’ve never seen them before
