Step on board the Batoche Shuttle, a shiny white open-sided ride which can transport up to 48 visitors at a time on a trip of discovery around Batoche. Ride over to the East Village where Louis Riel’s provisional government of Saskatchewan was headquartered. See the remains of the Fisher store and house and the former home of Xavier Letendre. Feel more connected to the recent past of this Métis settlement on the banks of the meandering South Saskatchewan River. Along the way enjoy the scenic views on both sides of the green prairies sprigged with wild flowers and the Trembling Aspen forest. Meet figures from the past when knowledgeable Parks Canada staff in authentic costume stop for a chat and share stories of the Battle of 1885. Excellent for people with limited mobility, and wheelchair friendly, the Shuttle helps open up this historic site to everyone.

Tours can be booked in advance, but also run throughout the day 9am to 5pm. Running on week days between May 18 -June 30, daily from July 1 to September 7, and if available, with advanced bookings September 8 to October 9.
