During the day we went with our young son and there was some interest and learning for all of us, but all the wolves were behind fences and there was no opportunity to get close to them. I think there is an evening program which only runs once a week which probably would have been more interesting. However, it was... More

Our three year old twins loved the wolves here. There was a very informative presentation, and we were treated to the wolves howling a beautiful song for us.

It is not easy to find the wolf centre but it is well worth the effort, the girl who does the presentation is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the wolves and the animals are beautiful creatures, if you are in the area give it a try you won't be disappointed

I was a bit skeptical about visiting this location with regards animals being in cages, but when the tour guide explains why and how the animals ended up here, I am happy that the people here are working towards keeping the wolfs from extinction. The wolfs are given very large areas to roam in the jungle which are surrounded by... More

A family operated Interpretative Centre that rescues wolves and educates the community about wolves and how they are essential in maintaining the equilibrium in the environment. Well informed, committed young staff support this operation. Worth the drive from Golden.

The cages are so small and the wolves were pacing up and down the fence. The host sounded very bored and clearly says exactly the same thing word for word every day. While it was interesting the conditions were unacceptable

Really liked our visit to see the wolves! Our interpreter (and I can't for the life of me remember her name) was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the wolves. The wolves are beautiful and are well cared for. They are not wolves from the wild but come from zoos that have closed and the like. It was one of the... More

Had a great time at the wolf centre. This wasn't one of these showcase places with millions of tourists dollars spent on buildings etc. it was a great place to see and learn about wolves.

I have seen wolves in the wild and in captivity. This is a poor representation of wolves; since these do not look like purebred wolves. Also they are not helping educated the public about the wolf population of Canada based on the presentation I had heard. I have seen other educational wolf presentation that are more fact based and less... More
