Ever wanted to kiss a moose or watch a Kodiak bear play in her private pool? Join us on this one of a kind excursion, where you will have a very interactive experience at Steve Kroschel's Wildlife Refuge. The animals that live at the refuge were orphaned and given to the refuge to live out their natural life with their best friend and caregiver, Steve Kroschel.

On this hands-on tour, you will touch many of the animals while learning of fascinating behavior traits and the wild habitats of these animals. Join Alaska's Dr. Doolittle in engaging conversation with some of the most spectacular wild animals native to Alaska, as he truly does speak their language. All in his backyard!

Your journey begins on the pier in Skagway where you will meet your guide and be escorted to the ferry for a scenic catamaran ride through the glacial carved Fjord. You'll have a good chance of spotting whales and other marine life all while taking in the astounding and picturesque snow-topped mountain peaks and cascading waterfalls. Once you arrive in Haines, you will board your bus and enjoy your narrated journey along the Haines Scenic Byway to the Kroschel Wildlife center to have the experience of a lifetime!
