    Journey to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada June 18-June 25, 2020
    Come join us as we journey to Saskatoon, known as the “City of Bridges” for its seven bridges that span
    the South Saskatchewan River linking east to west. Saskatoon is home to the University of Saskatchewan
    where leading-edge technology such as the Canadian Light Source Synchrotron draws the best minds
    from around the world. The Meewasin Valley Trails are a hiker’s delight. The city’s vitality and cultural
    richness are evident in every neighborhood. Saskatoon made the New York Times 52 Best Places to Visit
    in 2018.
    Friendship Force Saskatoon, will host us for an activity filled week. Some of the places we may visit
    include Wanaskawyn, a First Nations Cultural Centre, soon to become a UNESCO site; the Western
    Development Museum, highlighting the early years of Saskatoon’s development; Manitou Springs
    Mineral Spa, which is known as The Dead Sea of Canada, legendary for its natural buoyancy and mineral
    rich properties and curative powers.
    We may enjoy a river boat ride on the Prairie Lily, go on a nature or river walk, visit a farm and explore
    some shops and restaurants outside of the city. We will enjoy touring this culturally rich city which
    houses a world renowned art gallery, a Ukrainian Museum, and innovative and plentiful restaurants.
