We took the guided tour by bus. Or guide, Pete, was terrific, knowledgable, and he had a great sense of humor. We were able to see Bison, Moose, Sheep, Caribou and more. Got close enough to get great pictures. A must stop

I've been here several times and enjoy the walk around the preserve. We've done the guided tour as well and it is equally enjoyable. Recommended for both tourists and locals.

We took our bikes and rode the two loops, 5 km. $12 each for two seniors. You can also walk it, or pay more and take the tour bus at specific times. We were there shortly after noon, and just happened to catch feeding time...More

This is a very good wildlife preserve that makes it easy to see the principal animals in the Yukon. The private tours are excellent, and our guide, Lindsay, was very knowledgeable.
