We enjoyed visiting the Wolf Centre and taking the Canopy Tour. The guides were excellent and the experiences were unique. The accommodations were something else.The first alarming thing we saw upon checking into our cabin were signs above the faucets that advise you that the well water is not tested regularly. I don't know how the government can allow accommodations... More

We learned all about wolves. Glad they were out or it would not have been worth it. We saw them through one-way glass and got a good sense of their normal activity. The museum was good though the store was expensive.

The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. They answered all our questions and helped us uncover the secrets of wolves in wild. We saw real wolves in their natural habitat; watched an informative film on wolves; and enjoyed a colourful art exhibit on wolves. I highly recommend the Forest's Wolf Centre to families.

It's been a while since we've gone to see the wolves, and this time we took my husband's son (adult). It was a first-time visit for him, and he loved it. The pack has changed quite a bit since we last visited. Now 1 adult male, 4 adult females, and 4 pups. They were all out, mostly sunning themselves, but... More

I want to write a fantastic review and give 4 stars but I'm kind of torn. I visited Haliburton Forest primarily for the Canopy Tour. I wasn't really sure what to expect and based any of my expectations on their website and a few reviews on Trip Advisor....so I wasn't questioning the $95.00 price tag that went with this expedition....

We went to the Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve primarily for the tree canopy tour, although we had time to squeeze in a short visit at the wolf centre. First of all, the wolf centre consists of many windows observing the reserve. The staff keep logs on the wolves activities and sightings that visitors can read. There are some... More

Let me start off by saying the scenery was beautiful. However...........very noisy beds, cant move in them without waking everyone up. Had 2 mice in our cabin which were caught with mouse traps in our bathroom. A four hour power outage that was apparently scheduled, but not communicated to guests. In room TV was not much bigger that an 8"... More

After we received the client’s comment, house-keeping staff and manager visited the subject accommodation to review the comments in detail: We inspected the bedding, kicked the carpet, discussed every piece of furniture and checked walls and faucets. And to start with the latter, there was one faucet, which was slightly dripping. As to the carpet, it was laid 3 years... More

We went to the Wolf Reserve and it was amazing. The wolfs were SO close, one was literally scratching on the window, we got such a close-up view. Definitely worth it. Would recommend to everyone! The staff was very knowledgeable and it was very interesting hearing them talk about each wolf.
