This was one of my highlights of my Alaska trip. Really enjoyed Steve and his partner (forget her name). The animals are awesome and it’s not a zoo. Being able to interact with the animals was the best. Not handicap accessible and if you can’t...More

My son has always been into nature and conservation and when he was young was very discouraged by the direction the environment and animals were going. Then we saw a nature documentary on wolverines, and among other things, they showed a guy named Steve Kroschel...More

If you get the chance to go visit go. Steve loves what he does and is a lot of fun. Not a fancy animal experience trying just to make money but a true wildlife sanctuary for both the animals and Steve. Must also complement the...More

Looking for “perfect” wildlife pictures? You may or may not get them. Some will be put off by Steve Kroschell’s somewhat eccentric persona. Set that aside. This is a wildlife center run by someone who truly cares about these animals. I have worked for many...More

Had no idea what to expect on this excursion. Total surprise and one of the best we’ve done. After a bit of a disappointment in Denali because of the weather we got to see rescued animals up close and personal; Bear, Caribou, Fox, moose, wolverines,...More

This is the second time we’ve visited this and it’s great both times. Where else can you kiss a moose? A great place to learn a bit more about world interactions from Mario, and how to be wild from Steve.

OK, we are veterans of 40 cruises on 4 different lines. This rates as one of the all time best excursions of all time. If we had done this place first, we could have skipped every other "wildlife" place on our cruise. This is an...More

I had been travelling Canada and Alaska for over 10 days and was a bit disappointed in the lack of wildlife I had seen. I was pinning my hopes on this experience and wasn't disappointed. It was truly amazing I knew Steve was unique but...More

There are usually two tour times. One at 11a and 3pm. You meet st the bottom of the hill at their gate. You will be greeted by one of the guys. It is a GREAT experience!

There is a small rent-a-car agency in Haines. They will pick you up, take you to their gift shop/rental facility. Real nice people and the car is very reasonable. Haines is small so easy to get around.
