It was a worthwhile visit to see the wolves up close, our host did a great job to explain the wildlife centre & its objectives plus about what wolves do. Its not as big as you would think judging by the name. Unfortunately you cant pat them like dogs .... You can pay with cash - they did have an... More

Seeing these amazing creatures only feet from you is so cool. The interpreter has a passion for what she does and loves these animals. I wish we had gone in summer, because it was cold and we had to cut our visit short. No bathrooms, only an outhouse, that was the only downfall.

WOW, this place is amazing. I went for the Black Wolf photography walk. We took 2 of the wolves, Scrappy Dave and Flora, out for an hour walk in the snow covered forest. Best thing ever. It was like walking the family dog. Seeing them play in the snow with each other then jump all over you was priceless. Casey... More

My guy and I went in January 2014 on a very cold day with no one else there. The staff showed us around and provided interesting information. It was the wrong time of year for a walk but definitely want to go back and walk with the wolves. The work the Centre is doing is amazing and the wolves are... More

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)
