Myself and two colleagues had a few hours to kill one afternoon so we decided to try out the Yukon Wildlife Preserve. The site turned out to be approx 40 mins from our downtown hotel on the way to Takhini Hot Springs. The drive is through pristine Yukon wilderness and we just happened to see grazing Whitetail deer along the... More

....and must add - in spacious, natural surroundings. So spacious that we actually could not see some at all or only from a far distance. Those we saw were frisky and healthy looking. Be prepared for a long walk. Nice views of the area along the way, as well as several dramatic examples of poplar's exploded bark (caused by severe... More

Plenty of animals native to the north and easy to see for the most part. Animals live in huge enclosures of their natural settings, which means the goat enclosure goes up the side of a mountain. There seemed to be dozens of Bambies the day we were there. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

I visited this awesome place with my adult children that live in Whitehorse. All of the animals have huge and well kept pens. I was impressed with how well the animals look. It is definitely worth going and being educated on wildlife. You can get some beautiful pictures because of being able to see the animals up close. My only... More

Yukon Wildlife Preserve is a great place where you can see the Canadian animals in their habitat, like the great moose.

Good way to see Yukon wildlife and good exercise if you choose to walk like I did. I was contented and thought it was worth it.

Kids enjoyed seeing different animals - we're from Ontario. Seemed a bit expensive? Be prepared to walk unless you pay extra to take the bus tour. The North has some stunning and majestic animals.

What a treat! Seeing the muskoxen chilling. Very informative guide who provided detail information regarding the animals kept at the wildlife preserve. Great enclosures - is not a zoo, so the animals do what they do. If they do not feel like being on display then they hide in the trees. We traveled on bus tour, the guide came from... More
