A brand-new way to explore provincial parks is being introduced thanks to a new partnership between Engelheim Tours and Saskatchewan Parks.
The new experience, The Saskatchewan Winter Adventures in Partnership with Engelheim Tours, will provide day trip tours as well as overnight tours of four different provincial parks throughout the winter.
Guests will be able to participate in unique winter adventures while also being provided with meals and accommodations.
Parks, Culture and Sport Minister, Laura Ross, stated in a press release earlier this week that the tours will provide ample opportunities for individuals of all ages.
"With our amazing partner Engelheim Tours, we are pleased to offer an exciting new opportunity to get out of the city and explore our province," she said. "Our provincial parks have numerous unique winter programs and activities for all ages, and we are thankful for these tours making it easier for visitors to experience them.”
The four parks that will offer tours this winter are Cypress Hills, Echo Valley, Duck Mountain and Buffalo Pound Provincial Parks.
The tours will offer guests specially curated winter activities including ice skating through nature, tobogganing, hiking, biking, and cutting down their own Christmas tree.
Engelheim Tours President and CEO, Shane Engel, added that the opportunity eliminates some stressful factors typically included in winter travel.
"We know not everyone likes to travel the roads in the winter, so we are happy to take that added stress out of the mix for our guests," he said. "As a Saskatchewan family-owned business we are proud to help give the people of this great province a chance to see some of the hidden gems found right in our own backyard."
