The preserve was as I expected-animals in large enclosures and a very enjoyable walk around. It's a nice place to visit if you want to see animals but are short on time to get out into nature to see them in the wild.

If you stay in a campground around Whitehorse you get a 2 for 1 ticket plus senior discount if applicable. The Yukon Wildlife Preserve is a great place to go for a nice 5 km hike through the preserve. They open 11 am and tours with a bus goes every two hours starting at 12 noon. We opted for the... More

Especially in Spring when so may babies are born. Great place to just walk through and see the wildlife that can be so elusive to find while driving. There is also a bus you can take and get on and off that goes through the park as it is fairly extensive. Lots of good information at the kiosk as well

I just visited Yukon Wild Life Preserve today. I loved it. But keep in mind this is a preserve not a Zoo. I was not able to see one animal but all others were visible most from decently close distance. Nice scenery around. I did not had enough time so I took bus but if I had time I would... More

It has been a long time since I have been here and boy what difference time has made! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. There are two kinds of tours you can do, you can either walk or take the bus tour that leave at certain hours. We did the walking tour as it was cheaper and allowed you... More

Rehabilitated and well taken care of wildlife. Beautiful grounds to walk around and a bus to tour those who don't want to walk.

We were in the Whitehorse area and happened upon the preserve. We went in thinking it would be a nice opportunity for a walk in the beautiful Yukon area. Wow! Great place to see local species of wildlife. We saw so many rare and unique animals ( to us) and were very impressed with the cleanliness and the care of... More

The 5K hike was enjoyable, not just because it was a sunny day, but the Yukon scenery is so impressive. The steep grade at the back of the property was a bit challenging, but manageable even for those whose fitness level is a but challenged. The animals were interesting and entertaining. So nice to see them in large living spaces.... More

My fiancé and I walked the property - took us 2 hours to casually walk everywhere & stop for several photo ops. We really liked the scenery and although we would have liked to see some of the animals up close, we enjoyed ourselves.

Well laid out and appropriate numbers of animals in thier expansive enclosures. Not like a zoo which forces the animals to be in viewing areas at all times, you may have to plan your timing to see certain species like the lynx. I went mid day and managed to see almost everything. Lots of new births and romping babies. Everyone... More
