Escape to Forest House Wilderness Lodge

Discover the beauty of northern Saskatchewan. Nestled on the shore of a pristine unnamed lake you will find Forest House Wilderness Lodge. This eco-lodge is located approximately 150 km N of Lac La Ronge in the heart of the Canadian Shield.  

To get there you have a couple of different transportation options; canoe or float plane in during the summer and ski or snowshoe in during the winter. Don’t let this trek scare you off, the journey to Forest House is half the fun!

Prehistoric Fun in Eastend

Who doesn’t love dinosaurs!? It’s probably safe to say that most people are somewhat interested or completely enamoured with the prehistoric beasts. There’s so much to learn about them and they tell us so much about the history of the earth, this is why a visit to the T.rex Discovery Centre in Eastend is a must. 

Back in 1991, a large vertebra was found in the Frenchman River Valley near Eastend that turned out to be Scotty, one of the largest and most complete T.rex skeletons in the world. This amazing find has led to many other discoveries and to the development of the T.rex Discovery Centre as a leader in scientific research and education.  

A stop at the centre allows visitors to learn more about the dinosaurs that roamed the land that is now Saskatchewan. Known species that have been discovered include Triceratops, duck-billed dinosaurs and, of course, Tyrannosaurus rex. You can even see a replica of Scotty at the Centre. Many other reptiles and plants have been found in the area and you can get a glimpse of paleontologists working on site.

Frenchman River Valley Ecotour

Heading to Grasslands National Park? Have about 2.5 hours to spare? Might as well try out the Frenchman River Valley Ecotour!

This self-guided driving tour winds you through the beautiful West Block of Grasslands National Park. It is full of all sorts of wildlife from antelope and prairie dogs to hawks and deer, if you’re lucky you might even spot the some of the bison from the herd that roams the park! Views in this area are endless and diverse – coulees and buttes to beautiful grasslands (go figure).

Along your drive there are markers for you to pull over at. Each stop provides you with an opportunity to stretch your legs and learn more about the area by reading the information panels provided along the way.

Before heading out make sure you check in at the Visitor Reception Centre for updated road conditions and to learn how to stay safe while exploring (as you are in bison and rattlesnake country). 

See Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park From a Different View

Loch Leven in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park is a little gem. Seriously, this small body of water is a great spot to go for a quick dip to cool off or to take a nice evening stroll around. Surrounded by the beautiful lodge pole pines that the park is known for, it’s a picture perfect.

To get a different view of the park hit the water and rent a paddle board, kayak, canoe or paddle boat from the Loch Leven Marina
