Yukon Wildlife Preserve Tours

Yukon Wildlife Preserve
The unique wildlife is often a highlight for visitors to the Canadian wilderness. While sightings are far from guaranteed, an afternoon at the Yukon Wildlife Preserve allows for ten of the area’s mammals to be viewed in relatively close proximity. The animals, which include elk, woodland caribou, lynx, moose, bison, mountain goats, and more, are particularly active during feeding times. Spread across more than twelve acres, the animals roam free in their natural habitat.

The trails running through the reserve total around 5 kilometers, and make for excellent hiking, biking, or walking with views of the Canadian countryside. Open fields scenically framed by mountains allow ample space for wildlife to roam and wander. Seasonally there are also often local birds sitting amongst the marshes. No matter the sightings, it’s always a great opportunity to view the animals in natural surroundings and makes for great photography opportunities.

Practical Info

The wildlife preserve can be experienced either in a guided tour or on foot. If self-guided, there are informative signs about each animal in front of each display. Parking is widely available and picnic facilities are located along the trails. The wildlife is not to be fed or touched by visitors (only viewed!) You can get there in about thirty minutes driving from downtown Whitehorse (it’s at kilometer 8 (mile 5) on the Takhini Hot Springs Road.) Many combine with a visit to the nearby natural hot springs.
Address: Takhini Hot Springs Rd, Whitehorse, Canada
Hours: Varies seasonally

Join us for a tour to the fantastic Yukon Wildlife Preserve, a large wildlife preserve close to nature. It hosts all the Far North’s animals except for bears, which must not be kept in preserves by law. We will spot bison, elk, Dall sheep, mountain goats, polar foxes, caribous, lynxes and many more. 
You can either explore the preserve by foot or opt for a guided bus tour. After hopefully having seen, watched and photographed all the preserve’s animals, we will visit Takhini Hot Springs, where we can relax in the hot springs’ mineral water for an hour.

Northern Lights and Huskies

star-5
Our location is very unique and our family are our dogs. We do have over 100 friendly and lovable dogs on site. "We are a place for people who love dogs" We are located outside the city light pollution so northern lights are visible directly overhead of our lodge, no need to drive anywhere. In addition to that we are located right at the shores of a river and for as long as the river is no frozen (until late October) there is a chance to get mirror pictures of the Northern Lights.
