The so-called ‘Paris of the Prairies’ is a haven of urban culture in otherwise rural Saskatchewan. Book a cheap flight to Saskatoon and enjoy this small, thriving city’s family friendly metropolitan appeal.
Located deep in the Northern heart of Canada, Saskatoon has four distinct seasons with warm summers and extremely cold winters, though low humidity makes the sub-freezing temperatures more tolerable than one might think.
When to fly to Saskatoon
The most pleasant season is the summer, so come between June and September.
Getting around Saskatoon
The local bus system conveniently services the whole city, and the city is also very bike friendly. Taxis can be pricey, but if you’re staying downtown you have plenty of things to do within walking distance.
Saskatoon insider information
Nearly 10 per cent of Saskatchewan’s population is of aboriginal descent. Certain Saskatoon neighbourhoods are heavily influenced by First Nations people, and the active archaeological site at Wanuskewin Heritage Park pays homage to the area’s original inhabitants.
