The price is 12 dollars and I believe it's worth every penny. I found the guide to be very knowledgable and he loves his wolves. Yes there is a fence between you and the wolves but like the guide said it's more for them then us. We were very lucky because when we arrived they were howling it was beautiful... More

Such a fantastic opportunity vto see wolves in such close proximity and to hear of their conservation isues. I understand the admission fee was for the animals' conservation, but the price wasn't really value for money as an activity (on a tight holiday budget)

We visited the Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre near Golden. It cost $12 each and was for me very educational about wolves and dispelled a lot of myths you hear about wolves. Hard to believe that Alberta still has bounties on wolves. Their website for more information is http://www.northernlightswildlife.com

It was lovely to see wolves up close, but it was even better to have such a knowledgable guide teaching us all about them. We learnt a lot about wolves and how they fit into the ecosystem in the wild. Great little educational visit.

It's not often humans get to see wolves but this is a rare opportunity to provide an experience for young and old about the importance of our relationships with nature especially wolves. I have been here years ago when it was first opened and pleased to see the effort they are putting in to educate the public. The day I... More

I booked this via email from the UK as a birthday present for my partner, to go out into the countryside, walk with wolves and photograph them - no need to worry about cages! We got an excellent safety briefing to ensure that we understood how to interact on our walk with the wolves. Sadly Scrappy Dave, one of the... More

Reading some of the reviews on here, I'm not sure what people were expecting from this. People who say it was disappointing 'because there was wire in the way so I couldn't get a good photo' are missing the point of this place are are in fact being quite selfish. The wolves here are captive bred, some part dog as... More

Being a photographer I was keen to do the hike with wolves and I know we should have phoned to make an appointment but we went there on the off chance. We were told that the owner was away and they weren't doing any hikes that week. Surely someone else could have done this - this could have been an... More

Had an interesting, passionate and educational talk from a guide. Got to see these wonderful animals close up. Really glad that they are just retaining as a refuge and living their words - if you are expecting a "show" or something similar don't go. If you after some facts, some time observing and learning - go.

We had made some extra time free to visit this so said "Wolf center" but were actually through after abt 15 minutes of listening to an overexcited "guide". The "tour" we expected never materialized so before we knew we were out again, the whole thing being over before it had started. So if you would still consider going there be... More
