After depositing our initial payment in person the coordinators informed us hours later that they would not honour our reservation and denied there was communication booking the reservation - although somehow not realizing that emails are a record. My partner who is a minority ethnicity...More
Went to the wildlife center with the kids not too sure what to expect. It’s basically wolves in enclosures. Nothing too exciting. They give you a tour and talk about wolves. nothing too exciting. Wolves were playing happily in their enclosures. I guess you just...More
I do like it here and I’ve only given it a 3 star as I wish I would have gotten to see more. There surely has to be something else that can be added to make it more worth it. That’s not to say I...More
I was prepared to invest in the full experience and the chance to hike with a wolf so I did the Blackwolf Photography Hike. I was not disappointed in the slightest. It was amazing. I'll let my photos speak for themselves, it is a truly...More
We visited the Wolf Centre over the holidays and were in awe of the majestic wolves . The facility was clean and well
laid out with accessibility for all . Our educational Interpreter was very engaging and taught us so much about wolf conservation in...More
people who are giving this place one star just because the wolves are kept in small cages are ridiculous. first off the cages aren't small, and believe me when I say it could be a lot worse. second the wolf are frequently taken on off...More
These animals are so amazing to learn about. It was wonderful to see them up close, doing their own thing, on our walk. Our guides, the owners, were wonderful! If we came back to the area, we would definitely do this again.
This involved a drive from our hotel and required the use of Hwy 1 which is crazy busy. Once off the main highway on the roads up to the centre the pace is more dignified and there are attractive woods and farms. There are plenty...More
We have been to many wolf enclosures and this one ranks right at the top. It is small but the educational aspect is well worth a visit. All the exhibits, plus the lecture are informative and do not sugar coat the wolf or its plight...More
It's a bit off the highway, with limited parking. The guided part of the visit is a very set recital of information (much of which is also on the very interesting information boards). There was no chance to ask questions during the talk, we were...More

Yes, I agree with the people above, it will take about 45 minutes. You can get a great map of the area from the Tourist Center on Highway 1. Also when driving those back roads be very watchful, as wildlife can jump out of the ditches so quickly that it can be frightening. Now it might be easier if there is a good amount of snow, you will be able to see them more easily. There won't likely be bears now, but perhaps deer. The Wolf Center is really worth the visit.
I am a reviewer, not the sanctuary. You will have to contact them to get the answers you seek. Good luck.

Golden - Wolf Centre (10 Replies)
My husband and I have planned our second trip to the Canadian Rockies for this September, and are considering a visit to the Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre in Golden. Does anyone have any experience with this wolf center? If so, how good is it? I noticed on their website a reference to Blackwolf Photography, who will take you into the enclosure for photos and semi-direct contact. Any info on whether this is good, and worth the money? Thanks to anyone who can share any info on...More

I went there in February and there were 3 wolves in the enclosure. One was out of sight, but made an appearance when called (the "wolf howl" was one of the highlights). A lot of wolf literature available there. Very informed host. I believe the photo sessions have to be booked in advance, otherwise you can just turn up. If I'd had the money, and known for certain which day I'd be in the area, I would definitely have gone for the "up close and personal" opportunity. Bear in mind that wolves...More
