Favourite things to do in Saskatchewan

Andrew Konoff's favourite Saskatchewan scene, near the Box Mine at Uranium City

In his role as the Saskatchewanderer, Andrew Konoff has learned a thing or two about fun things to see and do in Saskatchewan. (Go here to read our full Travel Tuesday profile on Andrew.) Below is a list of some of his favourite activities from across Canada’s breadbasket.

Favourite Park: Three-way tie between Meadow Lake Provincial Park, Cypress Hills Provincial Park, and Grasslands National Park.

Favourite Restaurant in Saskatoon:  Weczeria for a sit-down gastronomic adventure, Jerry’s for artisanal burgers and the best gelato I’ve had in the province. In Regina: Ngoc Van for some bahn mi or pho, and the Italian Star Deli for their incredible panino. I also really like the Fainting Goat—they’re pretty committed to local and sustainable food. In all of Saskatchewan: I’m a sucker for risks in cooking and I think Weczeria takes the cake.

The best place to catch a live show: The Exchange in Regina.

Favourite pub: Bushwakker’s for sure, also in Regina. They’re an English-style brewpub with some awesome mead in the winter, which makes those long-time-no-see encounters just that much warmer.

Favourite Saskatchewan scene: The image pictured above. It’s up near the Box Mine at Uranium City.

Favourite hotel/resort: I really enjoyed my time at Elk Ridge Resort—lots of golf, though the wintertime activities are nothing to shrug about either.

Favourite adventure: The whole Century Flight Club week was outrageous! We got stuck in a uranium mine at Key Lake to wait out a storm—incredible, hey?

Favourite local Saskatchewan personality (and/or Mountie): Gainer the Gopher, of course!

If this list inspires you to plan a visit, be sure to read this online guide to Saskatchewan slang. In no time, you’ll be wearing a “bunny hug” alongside some “flatlanders” in “Pile o’ Bones” or “Hug City.”
