Hike deep into Prince Albert’s wilderness on a pilgrimage to trapper turned conservationist Grey Owl’s fabled backcountry cabin. Grab a paddle for an overnight canoe excursion, where you’ll portage between boreal forest lakes. Soak up the sun at six sandy Waskesiu Lake beaches, or enjoy lakeside cottage living – dining, lodging, water sports and more – in the town of Waskesiu. The unique setting of Prince Albert National Park rewards both serious adventurers and day trippers.
