Prince Albert National Park: Why It Is A Jewel In The Wild
It wasn’t long into my visit to Prince Albert National Park before I discovered what I loved most. Though, it wasn’t something singular. It came with a mix of some of the best wildlife sightings in unexpected spots, the remoteness, and spectacular beauty. The park sits about 2.5 hours north of Saskatoon, where the landscape is flat and open but still manages to surprise. For instance, seemingly out of nowhere, as you get closer to Prince Albert National Park, leafy trees come into focus, and you enter a boreal forest. The towering white and black spruce, jack pine, and aspen trees are only the beginning. The park is dotted with lakes of all sizes. The largest are Crean Lake, Kingsmere Lake, and Waskesiu Lake. Best of all, there are plenty of chances to spot wildlife here, including bears, moose, fox, bison, otters, elk, and deer. The park is also home to nearly 200 species of birds, so don’t forget to look up. This video shows you four experiences you don’t want to miss.
My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
