  • This is another highlight of my Yukon trip! I went with Northern Tales Tour as part of a package with Takhini Hot Springs. I had so much fun experiencing and learning about these animals in its' nature form (in the wildlife) and not being confined to a limited space. Really enjoyed learning about the northern Canadian wildlife. And the views are just WOW!
  • This place is so beautiful. If you can't see animals walking around and want to, make sure to visit. They take super good care of the animals and they have a lot of beautiful species. The walk is nice or you could take the bus around.
  • The preserve is set up to easily walk in about 2 hours. The majority of animals enjoy your visit and are very near the fence. There are so many animals to visit in their own environment which changes as you go through the preserve.
  • Had a fantastic time walking the trail. Trail was well kept and had great views of all the animals. Staff was friendly and helpful. Loved the antler selfie-station. Super cute! Only suggestion: would have appreciated a warning that the back loop had a pretty big hill! Could the elevation be marked on the walking map?
  • Loved it. We had a lovely walk around in the snow. A great selection of animals graciously came out to have their photos taken. The staff was very friendly.
