Nicknamed the Paris of the Prairies, Saskatoon certainly has something to charm every visitor. In the fall, nature along the banks of its long river is even more resplendent.
The Meewasin trails are open all year-round but are particularly beautiful in the fall. On foot or by bike, you will find a variety of nature conservation areas, home to no less than 150 species of birds and more than 300 different plant species. On both sides of the Saskatchewan River, the scenery is breathtaking and provides a glimpse of the rich biodiversity of the surrounding area.
