Fat Tire Biking Adventure In Northern Saskatchewan
The annual Hardcore 100 is 100km of fat tire biking on the pristine snowy wilderness of Northern Saskatchewan's Otter Lake and surrounding area. The trails and weather were in excellent shape and created the perfect environment to push this riding experience. The visit to Nistowiak Falls, one of Saskatchewan's most stunning waterfalls, was exceptional. Be sure to mark your calendars for March 9-12, 2023 and take part in this unique adventure.
It is super cool to be able to ride winter trails into locations like Barker Island and Nistowiak Falls where most people only ever get to experience in the summer by canoe or boat. Cycling across frozen lakes under blue bird skies in the warmth of the March sunshine is second only to the thrill of riding the narrow portage trails that link the lakes together. Being able to witness the incredible beauty Nistowiak Falls in the winter provide memories that last a lifetime. Riding in the Missinipe area should be on every fat biker’s bucket list. Cheers to Adventure Destinations for bringing this experience to those adventurous souls looking to discover our great white North by bike.
Canada's Premiere Dog Sled Race
Canada's own premiere dog sled race in Northern Saskatchewan. Starting at Elk Ridge Resort, and finishing at our very own Thompson's Resort, this race is around 250km and takes on average just under 2 days to complete. People gathered at Thompson’s Resort to cheer the mushers over the finish line and meet racers. New this year, we had mushers available for individual sled rides. This event will be returning in 2024!
Swimming Adventure In The Canadian Wilderness
2022 was the first year for this unique international swimming adventure. Days were spent exploring the historic river systems and boreal forest of Northern Saskatchewan. Amazing memories were made on this all-inclusive trip of great people, food and scenery. See what’s planned for 2023!
