Crossmount Cider Company

For your afternoon, why not pop over to Crossmount Cider Company, located just south of Saskatoon. Nestled in a picturesque setting, this cider house is more than just a place to enjoy a drink—it's a retreat into nature. Take a leisurely stroll on one of their beautiful orchard tours and then settle in for a cider tasting session. Their handcrafted ciders, made from locally grown apples, are a delicious treat.

Finish your first day with a peaceful meditation session at one of Saskatoon’s most scenic spots. Find a quiet corner along the riverbank, or in a nearby park (my personal favourite is President Murray Park). As you sit quietly and reflect on your day, let your surroundings and the gentle sounds of nature deepen your relaxation and ground you in the present moment. This final moment of tranquility will leave you feeling fully rejuvenated and at peace.
