Actually, you can put a carrot in your mouth and stick your face toward the moose who will then grab the carrot from your mouth, and possibly leave you with a nice wet nose from bumping his nose. Lots of interesting stories about the animals,...More

What led us to take this tour (aside from our love of animals and those who care for them) was a film entitled "Chasing the Phantom". It is about the elusive wolverine and how Steve Kroschel adopts and raises two orphaned wolverine kits. Needless to...More

This is the closest to Alaska's wildlife you can get without putting your life in danger. Every animal there reminds us of the importance of their existence for our continued existence. The staff is truly concerned for the well being of each species, and they...More

We had a great time on this tour of the Wildlife Center. Great guides, lots of great animals (falcon, lynx, porcupine, mink, weasel, bear, fox, wolverine, reindeer, moose, etc) and all up close. A relatively easy, but uphill walk off the bus to the Center....More

I would contact Kroeschel to set up an appointment and then do a car rental for the day. You can rent through the Captain motel. I believe the drive is under thirty miles and the roads are fine.
