Well worth the extra to pay $65pp for the private tour. Jake was very informative, and it was fabulous to go behind the scenes & check out the Rehab facilities, and see what fab facilities they have there to help injured animals. This is the time of year for injured birds....Bald eagles, Golden Eagle, Snowy Owl, Raven, Peregrine falcon... And... More

It is a great location and it is very impressive to have a see at those wild animals. Our guide was very informative and nice. I like the fact that they help the animals by rescuing them when needed.

If you have the time, visiting the Yukon Wildlife Preserve is a worthwhile experience. Unless you were fortunate enough to see the array of wildlife on the way up the Alaska Highway, this is your opportunity to see what the Yukon has to offer - and up close. The Preserve has a wide collection of animals native to the territory,... More

Visiting the Preserve was a highlight of my trip. It is located in one of the most beautiful settings with rollings hills and mountains in the background. The animals are allowed to roam in such spacious settings and our guide Lindsay was excellent, knowledgeable and showed deep understanding and care of her work. I highly recommend this tour.

Travelled with a group of 6. We did the private tour which was $65 and was completely worth it. It allowed us to see some areas that the standard tour doesn't get to see (rehabilitation clinic) also allowed up to go at our own pace. The standard tour looked like it would be a very large group of people. Our... More

While the Wildlife Preserve is outside of town it is worth the trip. You can either take the bus tour or walk/ski around the enclosures depending on the season (track set in the winter). There are information placards about each animal and lots of chances to see the animals enjoying their day but since the animals have lots of space... More

Someone told us to take the on-site tour rather than walk the reserve and it was good advice for a first-time visitor because the guide told us so much about the animals and history of the place. It's inexpensive at $22 per adult head, while the local tour operators charge a lot more but usually team it with a visit... More

The animals were mostly behind big fences and we couldn't see many of them. I understand why, but it was hard to see the point of being there if there was nothing to see. Still, we enjoyed the time.
