Loved the wolves, very educational to walk through the museum to learn about the wolves. Even more educational to see the wolf pack in action and speak to the staff. Hershey the moose and the other animals are also fun to see and say hi to. Will be back to visit again for sure.

Was in town for a conference and had the wonderful opportunity to visit this unique place! Only participated in the Canopy tour and did not stay in their accommodations. I did look around and the rental units look very nice from the outside. I would definitely consider booking a stay and especially in the winter. Our tour guide was excellent;... More

This is a great place to observe wolf pack routine and behaviour, and also a great photo opportunity. There are a lot of good information at the centre, as well as, friendly and knowledgeable staff. It is easy to spend 2 hours there, just watching the wolves. Best to arrive late morning, when they are active, and not ready for... More

We spent over 2 hours at this facility but it really didn't seem that long! There is lots to see and read, and of course, waiting for the wolves to appear requires patience! We were lucky enough to see 3 wolves and observe them eating a Thanksgiving Dinner of road kill deer. Both of our kids (14,12) were so intrigued!... More

I always thought the Haliburton Forest was just that. Little did I know there is so much to do. We did get to walk one of the trails which was clearly marked and easy to walk with enough of an uphill challenge to get the heart going. The highlight this trip was the Wolf Centre. It is well laid out... More
