Northern Saskatchewan’s wilderness flows through a mix of rocky Canadian Shield and boreal forest (taiga). The combination of Shield rock and sand makes for a variety of scenery and campsites. Moose and black bears are the most common large mammals in the region, along with river otters, beavers, and potentially grey (timber) wolves.
The rivers offer a wide range of rapids, swifts, and calmer areas, as well as the occasional portage. You will seldom see another person on these remote waterways.
