The Yukon Wildlife Preserve boasts ten species of Canadian animals (and one of these is a type of squirrel). The grounds are beautiful and the animals seem well looked after. However, I managed to walk through without seeing any caribou or moose (they were well blended in to their environments). The snow foxes were delightful.

So the preserve is okay, but not overly impressive. It is great that they give the animals plenty of room to roam (way better than a zoo) however this also lead to difficulties seeing the animals. The muskox and moose were particularly far away and even with. 200 mm zoom couldn't get a decent picture of them. Again, it was... More

As a western Canadian, I have been fortunate to see all the animals at the preserve in the wild! For people not fortunate to have this type of exposure, this would have been a worth while visit.

We were there in late January, at a time of unseasonably abundant snow and ice. Even so, their warm jitney and interesting narrations made the tour reasonably comfortable and informative. Lots of animals, easily visible !

We booked a tour and got a private one. The knowledge of our guide was strong. We got an inside look at the inner workings and care for the animals. It's a good tool for education. The highlight of the tour was arctic fox. They were energetic and very interested. There was also a wayward muskrat that took residence in... More

What made this a very good trip was Tom our tour guide who was very informative . The weather was a bit cool but the sun was out in full force and the animals were out sunning themselves, giving us great photo opportunity, we even got a picture of one of the free roaming critters, the curvaceous muskrat who found...

My husband and I did a self-guided walking tour of the reserve just this past week in February, when we stayed in Whitehorse over his birthday. Such a peaceful place, and a glorious walk on a nice, crisp day. We had perfect weather despite the season and great luck with glimpsing nearly all of the animals in the reserve. Very... More
