We saw many animals which we don't normally see in our daily lives in the city. Elk, Moose, Red Fox, Mountain Goat, etc. It's a nice area for the animals and it worth a visit.

We were fortunate enough to visit during feeding time! You can walk the 5 km road but Northern Tales takes tour buses in and we appreciated that because it was icy....spring day and the animals were active!

It's amazing to see the animals roaming on large plains and we are so close to them. I saw animals that would have otherwise be very difficult to spot in the wild: arctic fox, Canada lynx

I'm probably in the same boat as you! I don't feel like anyone who got driven around could comment accurately ;) We walked the 5km loop and for the most part it was pretty flat, but there are some steep-ish parts and there... More
