Exploring White Bear First Nations

Posted Felipe's 2021 Adventure

I explored and got splashy at the White Bear First Nations in southeastern Saskatchewan!

Jonathan Pasap and his kids' Colt and Courrine know the area by heart and suggested kayaking with Kim's Kayaking at Hotel Beach.

Pro tip: remember to pack your tent for this adventure because the one-famous hotel is long gone and there is now a beautifully appointed campground in its place.

Hotel Beach is definitely a place where you can expect idyllic summer memories to be made!

After our kayaking adventure, Jonathan and his family suprised me with a stunning beaded collar that represents their community, White Bear First Nations. The collar was made by Shana Lonechild. I am honoured to receive this beautiful piece.

After all that exercise and with such an extraordinary gift in hand, I was ready for lunch and The Hungry Moose Cafe & Bakery sure helped in that department. Offering burgers and ice cream, The Hungry Moose food truck was precisly the fuel I needed for what came next.

I was told the nearby White Bear Lake Golf Course is one of the most beautiful in all of Saskatchewan, so I had to go and see it for myself. Marie joined me as a guide! Wow, this golf course is really unique. Located right in the middle of the forest, surrounded by nature, you can find your drive in this scenery!

What an epic day at White Bear First Nations! Special thanks to the community and everyone who helped to make my stay one to remember forever!
