It takes a boat ride and a bus ride to get there from Skagway but I totally enjoyed it. I didn't want to take the train ride to nowhere and back in Skagway so I asked the cruise director for a unique excursion and this was truly off the beaten path. It was enjoyable to listen to Mario's knowledge and... More

Kroschel Wildlife Center, Haines, Alaska. This center is a bit hard to get to but certainly worth the effort. First it's about a 20 mile ferry ride out of Skagway Alaska to Haines. Then you have to travel the 28 miles north of Haines, Alaska past the Chilkoot River onto Mosquito Lake Road. If you are lucky enough to get... More

Hubby and I visited this place during our 7-nights Alaska cruise. Incredible experience! I'm thankful for the reviews here at TripAdvisor, very helpful and informative, I'm glad I did a little research. This experience topped our week-long vacation! Prior to visiting, I had no idea that hubby is a fan of the documentary "Wolverine: Chasing the Phantom" which he watched... More

From the great bus ride by our driver, Joe, who was informative and entertaining, to the amazing tour of Kroschel Films Wildlife Center, this was a must see, entertaining and educational journey. Steve and Mario care so much about their animals and nature, their passion and love shows throughout every step of the tour of this amazing, magical place. They... More

My husband and I were SO pleased with our excursion to this place! Seeing these animals up close and being able to pet many of them isn’t something most people can say they will have an opportunity to do in their life! We were able to get up close to a wolf, falcon, foxes, a marten, weasels, mink, lynx, porcupine,... More

I visited Kroschel Films Wildlife Center with my 12 year old daughter. We had seen the sign on a random drive by. We happened to be in the right place at the right time as there were two tours available that afternoon. The tour evaporated over 2 hours seeming like mere minutes. I was sad when the tour ended. The... More

My 3 year old had a blast petting porcupines, foxes, caribou and a moose. The owners' knowledge of the local flora and fauna is impressive and they kept the adults entertained as well. We went as an excursion from our cruise ship and it was one of our favorite stops.

Exceeded our expectations in every way. Steve & his partner are true animal lovers & the animal in their care show it in many ways. My wife Barbara and I loved feeding Karen, the Moose, holding carrots in our mouth and Karen took the carrots so gently and you could actually kiss a Moose. We have video to prove it... More

This was our first time of ever even hearing about this place, but if you've ever seen a documentary about animals of Alaska, it was probably done by these wonderful guys. Steve Kroschel and Mario have been doing this for over 30 years and they are truly dedicated to the lives of animals. We saw everything from Caribou to Moose... More

Wow! Wow! and Wow again. This was the most wonderful surprise. I had no idea what to expect, other than what people have already reviewed. This adventure was the most fun, interesting, educational and just plain entertaining excursion I took on my eleven day Alaska trip. Don't be fooled by the scraggly appearance of owner Steve Kroshel, he and his... More
