Always wanted to see the infamous mountain goat and snow white arctic fox in person?Discover these mystical winter wildlife of Whitehorse Yukon. Given the extreme cold conditions and constantly changing climate in the northern territory, occasionally you can also catch a brand new breed of wildlife that starts moving into the Yukon border.
I did a lovely tour conducted by Arctic Range Adventure around the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, which is the home to 13 different types of wildlife. The guide, Yuuri was a lovely friendly guide with informative stories about the animals in the preserve. He could speak in almost 5-6 different languages fluently, which was quite impressive and useful for all kinds of tourists.
So introducing to you the following:

Yukon Wildlife Preserve is a really lovely place to visit if you travel with young ones or are a winter wildlife animal lover. Furthermore, the bonus of this tour is that it ends off with a lovely visit to the Takhini Hotsprings just after sunset, so that you can soak your frozen tired bodies and enjoy the natural goodness of the Canadian hot springs.
