Located only 25 minutes from downtown Whitehorse and open year round, we provide visitors the opportunity to view and learn about 10 species of northern mammals on our 700 acre preserve.
You can walk, ski, snowshoe or bike our 5 km viewing loop at your leisure or join us for a bus tour guided by one of our friendly and knowledgeable interpreters. Both experiences provide excellent opportunities to view Yukon mammals in natural habitats. Reservations are recommended for guided tours.
Our facility includes the Wildlife Research and Rehabilitation Center where injured wild animals are cared for by specialists who work to release healthy, capable animals back into the wild.
We are a center of northern education, conservation and research excellence and are a proud member of Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums. Our mission is to promote knowledge and foster appreciation of arctic and boreal ecology.
Yukon Wilderness Expeditions Ltd. started in 1996 as Shadow Lake Expeditions, and has been providing quality gear, services and trips under the same Yukon resident ownership since that time. We’ve grown from a whitewater raft livery to include canoes, kayaks, accessory gear, transportation and expediting services for self-guided journeys. We are the northernmost Swift Canoe dealer, and all our gear is expedition quality.
Guided half-day and longer trips, both in the Southern Lakes region and throughout the Yukon, are based on specific interests like history, wildlife or photography, and follow seasonal rhythms.
We believe in providing a professional service, good advice and the best gear. Whether you’re a better paddler on a tougher trip, or simply want great service and gear for your family outing, we can help. Our trips often start where the others stop, and what you see when you’re on the edge of the map can be stunning!
