Just off the main highway but worth a visit to see wolves up close in compounds and listen to a passionate wolf lover talk about the wolves' lives and future. What's more, we actually saw a wolf crossing the highway shortly after our visit! Amazing!

small wolf zoo, guides are very enthousiastic, and genuine concerned about wolf in the wild doesn't take much time, but worth a visit!

During our two week tour in Canada, we visited many wonderful places but our visit to the Northern Lights Wolf Centre in Golden, where we walked with and photographed wolves, will be one of our most enduring happy memories. We booked in advance (you must do this) and attended the photography experience, where we were taken in a pick-up to... More

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
