My mom, son, and I really enjoyed the tour. (Our guide) was very kind and accommodating. Her knowledge of the animals was incredibly impressive, and she was an excellent tour guide. Also, getting to feed the caribou grapes and the moose orange peels was a once in a lifetime experience we will never forget.
Enjoy a tour where your personal guide will walk you through the AWCC and share the history and personal stories of our resident animals. You’ll have a chance to be up close and personal with a porcupine and have the chance to feed one additional animal. From May 1 to September 30 tours are offered daily at 9 am and 2 pm. In the winter, Walk on the Wild Side tours are offered at 2:00 pm during hours of operation. Reserve your tour online today!
