Saskatchewan provincial parks aren't just for summertime fun. Parks are open year round with lots of winter activities awaiting travellers.
Thanks to a new partnership with Engelheim Tours, Saskatchewan Parks is offering packaged bus tours to four provincial parks this winter.
The Saskatchewan Winter Adventures in Partnership with Engelheim Tours provides overnight and day trip bus tours to Cypress Hills, Echo Valley, Duck Mountain and Buffalo Pound Provincial Parks. It includes unique winter adventures, accommodations and meals for each guest.
"With our amazing partner Engelheim Tours, we are pleased to offer this exciting opportunity to get out of the city and explore our province," Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross said. "Our provincial parks have numerous unique winter programs and activities for all ages, and we are thankful for these tours making it easier for visitors to experience them."
Participants who take part in all four tours will receive a free 2023 Annual Park Entry Permit as well as a $25 future travel credit with Engelheim Tours.
One of the many benefits of the packaged tours is it takes the worry out of winter travelling.
"We know not everyone likes to travel the roads in the winter, so we are happy to take that added stress out of the mix for our guests," Engelheim Tours President and CEO Shane Engel said. "As a Saskatchewan family-owned business we are proud to help give the people of this great province a chance to see some of the hidden gems found right in our own backyard."
Each curated tour will include different winter activities and experiences including cutting down your own Christmas tree, skating through nature, hiking and biking, tobogganing and more. Guests can anticipate the perfect balance of winter activities and warm opportunities with outdoor and indoor options to choose from.
