This is one package that will leave you feeling mushy!

Elk Ridge Resort is a four-star destination in Saskatchewan just a one hour drive north of Prince Albert. Elk Ridge has teamed (pardon the pun) with Sundog Sled Excursions to give guests an unforgettable experience.

Guests have the chance to glide down the trail with the sled dogs. No experience is necessary to take part in this adventure as local guides will steer you right and share their in-depth knowledge. This opportunity includes one half-day of dogsledding (3-4 hours) , one night’s accommodation at Elk Ridge Resort, plus a feature evening of dining from a gourmet, three-course set menu, with wine pairing inspired by the wildlife and flavours of the boreal forest.

This package starts at $599, two guests per sled, and $839 one guest per sled (extra comfort and twice the driving time).

Package includes:

  • One night stay at Elk Ridge Resort
  • Use of head-to-toe insulated outerwear for dogsledding, complimentary use of snowshoes on Elk Ridge or Sundog trails and all resort amenities (waterslide, fitness centre, hot tub)
  • Chef’s three-course dinner with wine pairing in Copper Ridge Restaurant at Elk Ridge Resort
  • In-room welcome basket (includes a toque and snacks) Recommends Seeing Saskatoon

After your dogsledding excursion, make the 2.5-hour trip to Saskatoon. That’s what Columnist Adrian Brijbassi did, and he certainly enjoyed his visit to Saskatchewan’s largest city. Brijbassi stayed at the Sheraton Cavalier while he toured Saskatoon, a visit that included a stop on the trendy Broadway Avenue stretch and kayaking on the South Saskatchewan River with CanoeSki.

In an article headlined “It’s time to take Saskatoon seriously,” Brijbassi writes about the city’s new-found wealth: “You need to go to Saskatoon. Not only to realize that there may indeed be a tomorrow where prosperity is possible but to enjoy the sense of vitality that seems to arise when people, businesses and municipalities have a little extra in their pockets. The positive feelings that good times engender is palpable here in an outpost that many Canadians scoff at without ever paying it a visit.”
