I love wolves and that was the first time I saw some in real flesh and it was awesome. The girl there was super nice, she answered allll our questions and even more! We learned so much from that experience. We spent about an hour watching them interact with each other and get crazy when they felt food was coming!... More

It's been quite a few years since we went (website date didn't go back that far) on this trip but I just started doing reviews and our experience here started what has now become a yearly adventure vacation for the "Three Wild Women". We signed up for the 3 hr photo walk and were delighted to be accepted into the... More

Very knowledgeable staff made this attraction worth the visit. These wolves have been raised from puppies by humans. One hour is enough time. Make a point of noticing landmarks on the way to the wolf centre, as it is easy to miss your turns when returning to the highway.

My husband and I were British tourists, doing a road trip from Vancover to Banff. We decided to call in at the Wolf Centre as we think that wolves are amazing creatures, and have not seen a centre dedicated to just wolves before. We have learned that Canadians are very friendly, but at the Centre they were incredibly talkative and... More

Book well in advance so you won't be disappointed. Casey & Shelley gave us a great experience with the wolves in a natural surrounding. Something we will treasure forever.

Casey and Shelli are amazing hosts. Very very knowledgable and so caring of their special animals. It was an amazing experience to interact with such wonderful animals that are so misunderstood!! A must see. The photography walk is an experience of a lifetime!!!

Very informative talk on these much misunderstood animals. The centre clearly does important educational work to support the wolves. The wolves themselves were enjoying a warm afternoon just lazing around when we visited, Nevertheless, worth a visit.

So grateful schools are taking field trips here. Listen to talk they give it makes it a more valuable experience Make sure to see... More

Saw a clip on Youtube of the walking with Wolves photographic tour and decided to book. It was the best decision we made. You get up close and personal with the Wolves. After a short drive you get to go on a nice easy walk with the Wolves. We had two Wolves company us (Maya 16 years old and scrappy... More
