We went to this centre as part of our honeymoon, it was the reason we stayed in Golden. We did the wolf photography experience & we loved it, it was informative but the guides weren't 'in our faces', they were happy to stand back & let us enjoy the 45 minutes. They were also happy to chat in general about... More

If you are in the area make sure you drop in to see some very impressive animals. If you are a keen animal lover take a tour but a 2 hour walk will set you back £200 per pair. The talk is interesting as it is explained about pack behaviour and the plight of the wild grey wolf. For £8... More

Our info guide was great however for 12$ a person it wasnt worth it, no options to really see the wolves except through a metal fence @ a distance ( no good photo opportunities) but the info session was okay and filled with fun facts about wolves, roughly about a 15 minute experience

We drove to the wolf centre to book a walk with the wolves for Sunday. They didn't have enough staff for Sunday so we ended up just doing the 20 minute interpretive program. The lady was nice and very informative. I would maybe go again if I could walk with them and take photos. The place is a bit run... More

This sanctuary for injured wolves or abandoned cubs is quite fascinating and well worth the drive to (well, near to) Orange B.C. if you're in the area. It's run on a shoestring by knowledgeable volunteers who will give you a tour and a talk whilst you and these magnificent creatures examine each other. They're nothing like as scary to see... More

First off I hate to give a bad review so I am not really going to focus on the negitives of this place. If you are a fan of wolves or have never seen a wolve than this is a place to come as it was a romantic setting with us, the eight wolves and the worker explaining different information... More

Great interpretive center on wolves, where the passionate owners will teach you more than you could ever know about wolves in 20 minutes. The drive out is very pretty and easy to find however in the dead of winter if you don't have good tires or a 4x4 you may wanna be warned its a typical rural road yet steep... More

If you have never seen a wolf then this is your chance. You won't get close to them unless you go on a walk with the wolves. Depending on the wolves actually on the walk with you will be the deciding point if these ones are comfortable with humans or not. The people running this seem to have the wolves... More

My family and i visited Golden and the Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre this December. I love wolves and photography,so we chose to partake in the 'walking with the wolves' experience they have to offer. It was truly memorable. The guides were so passionate and knowledgable and answered all our questions. The wolves themselves were so wonderful.. We walked with... More
