Situated along the shoreline of Lac La Ronge, this full-service northern town is the base for exploring Saskatchewan's far north. The bustling La Ronge Airport is home to several charter air companies and offers scheduled air service to the far north and to the south. From sandy beaches and Precambrian outcrops, to expansive bays and whitewater rivers, the scenery of Lac La Ronge and the Churchill River System is amazing.
