Tourism Estevan debuts The Backroads of Estevan Audio Tour

Estevan, SK – Tourism Estevan is set to launch a tour of a longtime Sunday tradition in Saskatchewan – a drive through the backroads. The Backroads of Estevan Tour, an initiative designed to inspire Estevan residents and visitors as another option to safely explore the community and its surroundings.

“The Backroads tour is a free, self-guided audio tour, an adventure on gravel!” shared Rebecca Westling, destination marketing and communication consultant for the City of Estevan. “It has 25 stops filled with historical sites, fantastic lookouts and local folklore.”

There are a few ways users can join the tour. To get the full guided experience, users can download an app that is set up with geofences. The audio will tell participants where to turn and is filled with little tidbits of information.

If users don’t want to download the app, they can follow along on the web-based version, but please note the web-based version doesn’t have geofencing, so users will have to hit play at each stop automatically.

The Backroads Tour starts at the Estevan Leisure Centre. It takes about an hour a half to complete but may take longer if users decided to get out of their vehicles and explore the stops.
