Greetings, educators!

Welcome to Canada, the second-largest country on earth, and a land of diversity in terms of landscapes, cultures, and histories.
At the heart of the country lie vast meadows of golden wheat and infinite skies: the flatlands, known as the Canadian Prairies. Today, let's take a deep dive into this ancient and culturally rich region with a strong First Nations influence.

Get a foretaste of our freshly-designed sample itineraries in this resourceful part of the country. Keep in mind that all EWT tours are customized so that students get the most of their hands-on learning experience in the field of your choice.


If you are hoping to bring your students in destinations boasting ancient culture in an exciting outdoor environment, look no further! Canada's sunniest province is also the home of 70 First Nations splitting into five linguistic groups: Cree, Dakota, Dene (Chipewyan), Nakota (Assiniboine), and Saulteaux. Deeply rooted in Saskatchewan's identity and being actively preserved, their traditions will provide a concrete learning framework by dynamically bringing history to life.

Saskatoon, Regina and Moose Jaw

Step right into a rich and varied cultural experience! In Saskatoon, follow the footsteps of the Northern Plains Indigenous People at Wanuskewin Heritage Park, and discover first-hand what life was like over six thousand years ago. Later, a tour of the Remai Modern Museum and its art collection will strengthen your students' understanding of the local perspective.

In Regina, students will gain knowledge of the province's politics from guided tours of the Legislative Building and Government House. Timing dependent, you may be able to combine those with educational activities such as Scavenger Hunts or even Life-Sized Board Games! Also visit the RCMP Heritage Centre and select among a variety of hands-on programs to familiarize your students with the story of the Royal Mounted Police – the "Mounties".

End your experience in beauty with a theatrical tour of the Tunnels of Moose Jaw! This one-of-a-kind and interactive experience will introduce your students to the history of Al Capone's bootlegging days and/or the early Chinese immigrants.

Southern Saskatchewan

The south of the province is also home to many cultural gems. A Western settlement of significant importance in the late 1800s, the Fort Walsh National Historic Site in Maple Creek offers a selection of tours and workshops relating to the North West Mounted Police, Metis legends, and traditional crafts/skills learning.

Also teach your students what it takes to live in the outdoors with an educational activity at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park – meanwhile, let yourself be cradled by the park's scenic beauty! Outdoor programs can also be taken at Grasslands National Park Visitors Centre, a park gathering some of the province's historical and natural resources. For a deeper dive into local science and history, don't miss the T.Rex Discovery Centre followed by a dinosaur-themed mini golf evening!




Nested at the heart of the prairies, the capital city of Manitoba will surprise any traveler with its history, natural beauty, and cultural life. The original settlement dates back to several centuries ago when natives used the confluence of Red and Assiniboine river as a trade spot. Today, this area is known as The Forks and is a popular hub for shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.

The Assiniboine Zoo with its polar bears and artic specimen; the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Inuit Art projects; and the Forth Whyte Alive experience all showcase the greatness of Winnipeg’s intrinsic relation with people and nature. Meanwhile, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is not just an impressive architectural icon (it is on our $10 bill!) but a monument to celebrate the struggles, challenges and the reality of our universal civilization towards a more equal society.

Historic buildings, cultural activities, vibrant nature, and exquisite sceneries – Winnipeg is certainly one of the top educational destinations in our country!


If your idea of a successful tour involves spectacular shows from Mother Nature – and the insightful stories associated with them –, do not miss a visit to Churchill! With merely 1000 inhabitants, this tiny yet captivating town is a great vantage point on the annual migration of Beluga Whales in the summer and Polar Bears in the fall. Season-dependent, its endless skies and infinite horizons may allow you and your students to witness the jaw-dropping phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis (or Northern Lights).

While in Churchill, also make sure to explore the Fort Prince of Wales National Historic Park built in Hudson Bay in the 1700s to preserve fur trade interests and artifacts. For an even more complete immersion into fur trading history, take your students on a self-guided tour of the iconic York Factory.
