As a long-time resident, I finally visited the Wildlife Preserve. My partner and I decided to make a big deal of it and booked the bus tour of the property but know that you can walk the trails or even rent a bike and cycle the trails too. So we headed out early to the Hot Springs Road thinking we'd... More

I have been to the Wildlife Preserve several times this year, at different times of the year. It is simply a spectacular place to visit: interesting and informative and eye-opening. It helps to book one of the van trips through the preserve, including a guide. These offer excellent value.

We did the self guided walking tour and we saw so many of the animals. It was a great place to visit and it was wonderful to see the animals have so much space to live. It was a great day!

Went there to shoot the goats and sheep, and was told it's good for birding. It is. I had loads of fun and spent almost the entire day there.

I live in the Yukon. I've seen most of these animals in the bush. Still, the preserve is gorgeous and a lot of fun. Being able to safely see the animals up close is a blast. The staff as so friendly and informative, and they work hard to make sure the animals are happy and healthy. This is a must... More

The indigenous animals are all happily grazing and on view in their natural habitat. It is safe to drive and walk between the different enclosures. A wonderfully run attraction.

This isn't your regular zoo. You get to see the animals up close and personal here. If you've never seen the animal of the north, then this is the perfect place to see all of them at the same time. I'd recommend tying this with other nearby activities, such as the takihi hot spring and maybe camping or a hike.... More
