Review 1 for Whitehorse City Highlights & Yukon Wildlife Preserve
well okay, so it is a wildlife preserve and the animals are behind fences.this may be your only chance to see musk oxen on the hoof however. They were essentially hunted to extinction and are now only in zoos and on a remote island in the Aleutians.
Whitehorse is the capital of the Yukon Northwest Territories, so there are fewer" original" buildings there compared to Dawson. This tour is a good way to get acquainted with Whitehorse and the surrounding area. besides seeing the town, they took us up to the dam and we saw the fish ladder there. The salmon had not come up the river that far yet, as it was only July. They have to come a very long way to get the Whitehorse. only 500 wild salmon made it last year, and 500 hatchery fish.
