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
The wildlife centre is quite fun to visit.
The centre has a ton of information that people can read.
As a warning, which isn’t a negative comment, but the information can be a bit shocking but if they don’t shock people, change will not happen....More
It's definitely worth a visit but not quite all it's cracked up to be. It's hard to see wolves, who need a large territory, cooped up in those smallish enclosures (I'd say the size of two to three large living rooms). They look bored. However,...More
The park was super small, we saw 6 wolfs(we almost didn't see them' we had to search deep) . the wolf were sleeping when we got there. there was nothing to do there after 2 minute
we were about to go until a woman stopped...More
This place is a little off the beaten track and isn't huge, but the wolves are beautiful and when we were there they were playing and howling together. The staff are very well informed and clearly care a lot about the animals - this is...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.

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
