I love to walk around and see the animals. Especially in June when you can see all the babies

This is not suppose to be a zoo, but a wildlife preserve. Instead it seemed very zoo like. The animals were kept in large enclosures instead of in cages, but they were still on display and didn't seem to have much of a wild environment in which to roam. The tour, by bus, was fine, but was about twice as long as it needed to be, and the driver was not particularly informative about the animals.

It was great to see so many interesting animals and get up close. We got a wonderful photo of the Lynx

The animals are so cute. You can see some of them at a very close distance. The guide is very nice and accommodating.

Nice to see the northern animals. Certainly need a good guide to tell you the history, habits etc of the animals. Northern Tales has knowlegable guides.
