North Saskatchewan River

North Saskatchewan River

The North Saskatchewan is a majestic and beautiful river winding in a northeastern direction through Edmonton. It originates 1,800 metres above sea level in the massive 325 sq. km Columbia Icefield. It flows across Alberta and Saskatchewan to Lake Winnipeg, into the Nelson River and eventually into the Hudson Bay.

The river and river valley are used year round for recreation: canoeing, kayaking, jet skiing, jet boating, fishing, gold panning and more. The North Saskatchewan River also supplies Edmontonians and surrounding communities with drinking water.
