Such a great preserve. The animals were about and were obviously well cared for. They are just as majestic in real life as they are in the photos. Our guide was very knowledgable about all of the animals and was very patient while waiting for some of them to make themselves know to us. High recommend.

This tour was recommended to us by our hosts at Northern Lights Resort and Spa and we were very glad we did it. It was almost the only wildlife we experienced on our White Christmas experience to BC, Alberta and Yukon.

We visited as part of a 4 person tour group today (the park was closed otherwise). We got really lucky and were able to see every animal there so it must have been close to feeding time. So many beautiful views and the signs were all very informative.

We lucked out and despite the cold, saw a lot of animal activity (minus Caribou). If you love hitting up the local zoo when you travel or want to learn more about Arctic wildlife, I highly recommend!

I took the bus tour as it was a pretty cold day to be walking around. It was awesome to have a guide add some more detail and stories behind the history of the animals in the preserve and how they are breeding, caring for them, or how they came to be at the preserve. Great place to see some... More

We were able to see lots of different animals which I haven't heard of before - Elk, Yak, Moose, Mountain Goats, Caribou to name a few. It was great seeing them in their natural habitat and how the government is trying to save these animals.

The Wildlife Preserve has a variety of animals from the Yukon that they care for, it is a beautiful walk and well worth the drive to do anytime of the year.
