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

I wasn't that impressed with the place itself when I first arrived. However I soon learned that these rescued wolves became imprinted on humans from a very young age and could not be released into the wild for that reason - also, they had a much bigger enclosure than first appeared but chose to be near the fence. The talk... More

My husband and I are nature lovers and when we heard of this place we were excited to check it out. However, we were disappointed with what we saw. Don't get me wrong - rescuing animals slated for euthanasia is always a good thing - its just that because these animals are so tame we expected them to have more... More

The girl giving the narrative of the wolves and the center was very well informed and provided a good educational experience. We all learned something. Good take away experience.

I was hesitant at first about this centre when I saw the wolves pacing back and forth in their cages. However, all was explained(they were waiting for their parents to come back from a hike wiith one of the owners.) The very passionate lecture on wolf history, behaviour, interaction with humans,was fascinating and had me wanting to get involved with... More

This is the only thing I had on my bucket list. After having had a heart attack, then the removal of a lung, I didn't think this would ever happen. The experience was memorable because my son and I shared this day together. It was an amazing time walking with these beautiful animals and seeing them in their natural habitat.... More

This is a must see! Very informative and enjoyable. My fiancé and I took my sister who was visiting from Australia, and this was the highlight for her!

We went here to see the wolves prompted by what we read on this site. I think I was a little mislead. Don't get me wrong, it was pretty neat to see a couple of wolves and to have someone who is obviously passionate about conservation talk about them but that's where the experience ended. I thought there was going... More
