Saskatchewan – a little-known province of Canada, called the land of hundred thousand lakes
The Canadian province of Saskatchewan is a remote and not so famous area. The river Kisiskatchewanisipi, once called so unpronounceable by Indians, gave the name of this province, which is placed on the Canadian territory surrounded by Alberta, Manitoba and the Northwest Territories. This region, isolated until the end of the nineteenth century, is among the largest ones, but despite its size, the population density is rather low. For fans of adventures and nature a trip to Saskatchewan, among its national parks, boreal forests and endless roads, can be a true dream. Travelers can visit the reserves of the Indian tribes of Atapasc, Algonquin and Sioux, also such places as the Musa Jou Tunnels or the Royal Gendarmerie Heritage Center to discover the history of the famous Mount, which shows an interesting past.
This region is interesting and attractive at any time of the year: in autumn you can admire the fabulous sceneries, when the southern valleys of the province are filled with all the colors of the palette, in summer Saskatchewan provides visitors with a variety of opportunities, walking and water sports due to the presence of many lakes. It should be noted that this province receives more sun than others. But in winter time Saskatchewan does not lose its charm and offers magnificent landscapes of frozen lakes and snow-covered plains.
