Top 7 Things to Do in Saskatoon

Saskatoon river, bridge, and city buildings.

Saskatoon, a thriving community and metropolis, is a vibrant destination for the nightlife, food, river trails, shopping, cultural institutions and museums, and more.

There are plenty of activities you can do in the beautiful city of Saskatoon after you have settled in at your Saskatoon hotel. Here are the top seven things you can do in Saskatoon.

1. The Berry Barn

The Berry Barn offers a panoramic view of the South Saskatchewan River. The river is breathtaking with the splendid array of gardens in a relaxed country setting. While you’re at the barn, you can visit its country style indoor eatery, and enjoy some home cooked meals and scrumptious Saskatoon Berry pie. This place is complete with a gift shop filled with Saskatoon Berry preserves and a variety of giftware.

For over 20 years The Berry Barn has been a staple of the Valley Road community. Owners Natalie and Grant have created a relaxing getaway just minutes from the city, with home-style cooking served in the country-style dining room and on the patio, with beautiful views of the South Saskatchewan River. 

2. Living Sky Adventures

Living Sky Adventures gives guests an opportunity to experience the river in a unique way: on a stand-up paddleboard. Peaceful exercises will help you stay balanced and focused, while appreciating the importance of water in our lives. The trip begins and ends in the heart of downtown Saskatoon, where brunch fea Iituring local ingredients is crafted exclusively for Living Sky Adventures guests.

At the zoo, you will meet an impossibly adorable group of meerkats, the cheeky Goeldi's monkeys, majestic grizzly bears, and many other species at Saskatchewan’s only CAZA accredited zoo.
