The entrance is not expensive and includes free parking. The wolves have a lot of space. Besides the wolves there are voltures living in wild. Really nice. But then, the food facility is very very poor. The 'croque monsieurs' we ordered where absolutely horrible. Frozen inside!! As well the cheeseburgers. If you can't even prepair microwave food, please don't sell... More

This is a ildlife park that specializes in conserving and displaying wolves from all over the world. They also breed them. When we visited (May 2016) there were some very young cubs. Unfortunately these intelligent creatures look really bored. The best zoos these days try to create an environment in which the animals are stimulated as well as being well... More

Dear Roger, Thanks for your opinion. Our wolves are in a perfect health. The one you've seen with an eye problem is now fine. The organisation has been properly improuved. We have put in place an English tour but this one is only possible on reservation. All around de park, you have a lot of written informations in french and... More

Thank you for your opinion. The majority of our visitors are French. That's why we do not have tour in English. We hope you understand. We're sorry about that. As you said, the visit with the guide is recommended. He is an expert and is very passionate by wolves. More

Lovely place to visit but make sure to catch one of the guided tours.

Or even consider coming in winter. This was the advice from our guide. The attraction has over 100 wolves that roam in vast enclosures. The problem is that wolves are nocturnal animals so during daytime - especially when the weather is warm and sunny - they tend to be asleep and can be difficult to spot. For this reason a... More

Hello, Thank you for your review. As our guide certainly said to you, wolves don't like heat. When it's hot, they go in the shade. They come out more during the winter.
