Other sites worth a visit include the Parc national de Miguasha for its fossils dating back as far as 360 million years, Parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie for its deep valleys, Saguenay for its fjord and Gaspésie, with 25 peaks reaching more than 3,200 feet.

With 100,000 lakes and rivers, Saskatchewan is a water-lover's paradise and opportunities for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, houseboating, rafting and any other aquatic adventure abound.

For those who would rather stay on dry land, Grasslands National Park gives visitors a chance to see sage grouse, white-tailed deer, rattlesnakes, black-tailed prairie dogs and burrowing owls in their habitats. Prince Albert National Park houses elk, moose, deer and black bear, Saskatoon's Meewasin Trail is an excellent place to spot white pelicans and the whole of Saskatchewan witnesses waterfowl migration, including swans, sandhill cranes, ducks and whooping cranes.
