My family enjoyed our bus tour since it was too cold to do a walk! It was amazing to see all the wildlife in one place. Some animals were in hiding, but most of them, I was able to see them!

Excellent experience viewing moose’s arctic foxes cougars arctic deer in their natural environment. Hats off to the couple who started it as a private preserve and the Yukon government for continued Maintanance as a natural game reserve. Unforgettable experience

We enjoyed the opportunity of seeing these amazing animals in a safe secure environment. It was very cold but the bus was warm and the guides very aware of how all the passengers were coping.

A bit more of a Zoo than a national park However the animals had vast space and the level of visitors is kept low, which was good A useful solution to an issue when the hunting was stopped at the park Well worth a visitMore
