The excitement of winter can be found during this enchanting season. From exploring new places to staying close by, here is our top 5 activities to explore in and around Saskatoon.
- Namaste- Venture to your local hot yoga studio for a sweaty class
Might we suggest warming up from the inside-out? Hot yoga is a soothing complement to the chill air of winter and whether you crave movement or simply want to chill, hot yoga studios offer classes for all. Our favorite is Modo Yoga Saskatoon located at 1st Ave, N in Saskatoon. You will be sure to leave a beautifully glowing and revitalized soul.
- Ready to counteract the effects of our cold, dry climate? Why not luxuriate at a local salon/spa?
Our top choice is Sage Beauty Bar, 500 Melville St. Saskatoon. Sage offers rejuvenating facial and body treatments with top-of-the-line skincare products. Each experience begins with a customized consultation, followed by your treatment – and sweet, sweet relaxation. Could there a better way to enjoy such a revitalizing process? And did we mention that treatments include some massage? Bliss!
- When feeling social (with an appetite) we suggest cocktails at the James Hotel, followed by dinner at Carver’s Steakhouse.
The James Lobby Bar is the perfect place to unwind with friends while admiring the beauty of the South Saskatchewan River. The atmosphere has striking finishes, vintage cocktails, and fine wines – perfect for pairing and sharing. Once your palette is cleansed, continue on to Carver’s Steakhouse where you will experience an intimate and stylish ambiance. Carver’s is known for the best cuts of steak, wines, and cocktails. A pleasure for all.
- Enjoy the countryside, as you drive to Eb’s Ski Trails (Nordic Ski Club) to spend the day, cross-country skiing with friends and family.
Eb's Trails offer an extraordinary cross-country ski experience with 52 kilometres of groomed ski trails winding through rolling forested terrain. Located near Duck Lake, Sk, skiers of all ages and abilities enjoy this wonderful experience. Dress warm and for the season, while breathing in the beauty of the great Saskatchewan winter.
- Explore the Remai Modern Art Gallery and Gift Shop, then lunch at SHIFT Restaurant.
The Remai Modern is a direction-setting art museum and gathering place for community and culture. The building includes 11 gallery spaces, a 150-seat theatre, SHIFT restaurant, outdoor terrace space and rooms with stunning views of the South Saskatchewan River. The Remai features a beautiful gift shop and, once your artful eye is satisfied, head to SHIFT restaurant. It’s a lovely place to dine, with its genuine, contemporary cuisine rooted in Canadian flavours, and a spectacular riverbank view. You’ll be inspired!
