Were you planning a road trip to Banff, but plans bottomed out? Or were you looking to camp somewhere that isn't Sherwood Forest? Just a few hours west of Regina is a little-known place called Cypress Hills, and it's the great escape you didn't know you needed.
Although this is the second year I've visited Cypress Hills, I still loved every minute. Built from a geological phenomenon, Cypress Hills has one of the oldest and unique landscapes in Western Canada ? and the highest point in Canada between the Rockies and the Newfoundland Peninsula.
As you can see from my piece on ZenSeekers.com, there's plenty to see and do in Cypress Hills such as biking to hiking to kayaking the beautiful Elkwater Lake. The nearby townsite also has an incredible museum, a restaurant and offers access to a variety of sporting and beach equipment. If you want to go on the water, on the beach, on the disc golf course or anywhere else, they have you covered.
One of my favourite things about Cypress Hills is the absence of crowds. I love travelling (could you tell?) but I can't stand crowds. I hate standing shoulder to shoulder with strangers, hoping none of them will breathe on me. While Banff is beautiful, during the summer and winter months it's impossible to get around. Cypress Hills, on the other hand, is much more laid back, peaceful and tourist friendly ? and Medicine Hat is only 40 minutes away if you forgot anything.
While in Cypress Hills, you can tent, stay in a cabin or glamp in one of their many lodges. For the outdoorsmen and indoorsmen, or for those just looking to escape the summer heat, Cypress Hills is the perfect great escape.
