Is Saskatchewan the best province in Canada? Nope!
Now, before we take that the wrong way, let me explain. Each province has its own unique beauty and it’s silly to compare each province to one another. Saskatchewan is often compared with other places and it is looked at as a “flyover” or “drive by” province. Let’s change that view!
Here’s a friendly reminder of how FLAT Sask really is..
Nipekamew Sand Cliffs
Ever think you would be able to say “Cliff” and “Saskatchewan” in the same sentence? Weird, I know!
Located in the center of Saskatchewan, you can jump on the walking trail and visit this area year round.
These cliffs were formed by the corrosion of the Nipekamew River over the course of many years! Not something you would expect to see in Sask!

Saskatchewan’s own Grand Canyon? Possibly.
Cypress Hills, Saskatchewan
Believe it or not, you are looking at an image taken in Saskatchewan!
Cypress sits on the border between Alberta and Saskatchewan in the far southwest. This place is full of awesome sites, not something you want to miss out on!
Big Muddy Valley, Saskatchewan
Big Muddy is a must see if you ever decide to explore Saskatchewan. From rolling grass hills to the dry, sandy, fossil like badlands. It is also home to the popular formation “Castle Butte”.
Don’t forget to explore the caves!
Avonlea, Saskatchewan (Blue Hills)
These hills are also known as “The Blue Hills”. This is because when looked at from a distance, they have a blue haze placed over them. Really cool!
This may look similar to Big Muddy, but it is located about an hour North of the Big Muddy Valley.
A nearby tourist attraction is the Claybank brick plant that is situated at the base of these hills. Tours can be taken of the once operating brick plant!
This was just a short list of the “Flat” parts in Saskatchewan. If you have photos from these areas or even places we didn’t mention. Share them in the comments. We would love to see what you’ve found! Your photo may just end up in the next blog!
Need a shirt to keep you warm while exploring? These Saskatchewan Plaid Shirts may do the trick!
