We were in Golden for 1 night and decided to check it out. We drove about 30 minutes out of our way and we had about 1.5 hours before it closed.We arrived and there was a family of 3 who just finished. I asked how the tour was and the reply was "okay" but some hesitation. All of a sudden... More

This was a unique opportunity to go on a walk with two wolves. This experience is geared towards photographers and those who want to learn about wolves. It was a fun experience and the two owners who were along on the walk with us, helped to get the wolves' attention by enticing them with treats (made mainly of beef, I... More

Our teenage son loves wolves so this was a must do for our visit to Golden. The 30 minute talk from the guide was really interesting, and provided a lot of information about wolves.

My husband had his hand licked by a wolf. I don't think he'll ever stop raving about this amazing experience!

Had high hopes, but was pretty disappointed by this place. If you're from Calgary, the view of the wolves at the zoo there is far superior. We were treated to a very informative talk about the wolves, but it was delivered as if by rote. The wolves themselves seem to be well-treated. Admission was pricey, IMHO, as were the items... More

The wolf centre is little way outside Golden, but worth a quick stop. It us a small facility, but the presentation was very well done and the staff had great information about wolves and were able to answer all our questions.

After speaking with the friendly staff and learning about this facility, we chose not to enter. Whilst it seems the animals are well loved and cared for, this place is simply a zoo that has bought in its display animals. There is clearly an effort being made here to use display animals to help educate visitors. However, according to the... More

About 15 minutes off the main highway 1 heading north-west from Golden approx after 5 miles you will see the signs for Northern Lights wildlife wolf centre. Its in the middle of nowhere but do not let that put you off because its a pleasant surprise once you arrive. Either for just having a look around and getting a interesting... More
