Up close encounters with magnificent full-size wolves. Great photo ops. The owner gives an informative talk as the visitors are able to view at least 4 huge grey wolves in enclosures. We got there just prior to closing time but were permitted to spend time on the property and photograph the wolves. Owners are very friendly and eager to educate... More

Kind of a sad place..five wolves sitting around sleeping while they told you about the government killing them . Not much to see, no trails to walk on .Save your money. Expensive gift shop stuff. They do sell burgers and have a picnic area

We were lucky enough to arrive soon after opening and have the wildlife centre to ourselves. We were welcomed in and encouraged to look around giving us time to quietly watch and photograph the wolves in their various forest enclosures before the official guided tour began. Our guide clearly is respected by the wolves and has enormous affection for the... More

Great place to go and see, staff was friendly and very knowledgable. Take cash, as no debit. The wolves and the tour are neat.

Having always loved wolves, it just wouldn't have been right to be in the area and not visit Northern Lights Wolf Centre. The conservation work that they are doing with wolves is amazing & the passion with which they talk about these magnificent creatures just blew me away. Even though we only saw 6 wolves, I would genuinely recommend that... More

We attended to see some wolves as we had never seen any prior to our visit. There was a 39 minute talk on the wolves, their history, etc. We found it very educational. It was a little smaller than we thought, but are glad we went.

Not that many wolves on show but the main purpose of the visit should be educational. There aren't many wolf sanctuaries around and the staff go out of their way to educate visitors about wolves!! I actually enjoyed the visit and I think the teenagers we had enjoyed the experience!

Find out why wolves are keystone animals (and what it means) in Canada and the US and why British Columbia is actually an empty wildlife region that could house much more wildlife. Great explanation!
