We took our took grand children dog sledding here, as part of March break, and enjoyed every single minute of our "first time experience". Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve never disappoints in delivering a superb experience for not only us but the children. We took the introductory ride which gave us the opportunity to get to know all the... More

My son and I spent a couple of hours watching Fang and his pack of wolves being wolves. Then we experienced a chance to pet Hershey the 700lb moose.

I had a sled with one daughter and five dogs and my spouse had another sled with the younger child and six... More

We were fortunate to see the wolves out shortly after their feed time. Very interesting! The museum though small is quite informative. Would recommend this, it is worth the drive from sir sam's inn.

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.
