Join writers and photographers Robin and Arlene Karpan on a visual journey along northern Saskatchewan’s most spectacular waterways.
Northern Saskatchewan ranks among the world's greatest canoeing destinations. Famous rivers such as the Churchill, Cree, Clearwater, Sturgeon-weir, and Fond du Lac flow through a vast forested land of 100,000 lakes. Paddling in Saskatchewan is to follow in the wake of voyageurs with fur-laden birchbark canoes, aboriginal artists who painted mystical images on riverside cliffs, and a who's who of northern exploration.
Saskatchewan is blessed with large tracts of pristine wilderness, although many wild places are endangered. Northern Saskatchewan Canoe Country showcases the beauty of the north, but it is also meant to raise awareness of our many special places and the need to protect them.
