Seeing wildlife is often the highlight of a trip in Yukon. Yukon enjoys many special northern species not common or not found in lower latitudes. Whether it is moose, caribou, Gyrfalcons, swans, or rare plants you wish to see, take the time and get to know where the best viewing opportunities are.

The Wildlife Viewing Program will help you find these sites, and give you tips about what else is out there that you might not have noticed.

Wildlife Viewing Guide

As you plan your Yukon vacation, use Yukon’s Wildlife Viewing Guide to help prepare for your trip. Find out where, when, and how to see wildlife along Yukon roads. This handy guide lists wildlife viewing sites and trails, and includes species descriptions, maps, viewing tips and other information to help you safely watch and learn about Yukon’s wildlife.

The English PDF contains links to Google maps, other Wildlife Viewing brochures, and the mammals webpages to make it easier to learn more about Yukon’s wildlife.

You can also download static PDFs in English, French and German.

Order a free paper copy of the guide by emailing the Wildlife Viewing Program with your name and mailing address.
