If you needed another reason to come to Saskatoon, Architectural Digest has named Saskatoon as one of The Top 20 Places to Travel in 2019.
Arriving in YXE early?
The cree word for beautiful is “Meewasin” (miywâsin ᒥᔮᐧᓯᐣ ). You will want to enjoy the beautiful view that downtown Saskatoon has to offer, so pack your runners and run, jog or walk both sides of the Meewasin Trail that runs along the South Saskatchewan river through the downtown area. For more information about trails and site information, head to the Meewasin website and download their Trail Guide.
We don’t have “Land of Living Skies” on our license plates for nothing. Make a plan to wake up early or stay up late to watch amazing sunrises and sunsets in the heart of the prairies. Average time for sunrise is 4:52 am and sunset is 9:16 pm. That’s about 16 hours of sunshine!
Speaking of lights, Saskatoon also has the brightest light in Canada! The Canadian Light Source located on campus offers free public tours on Wednesday from 2:30 to 3:30 pm. If you’re interested in learning more about damaged daguerreotypes and synchrotron light, please visit their website to Book a Tour.
