Very educational and interesting. It is possible to hike with the wolves but we chose to just watch them and learn from the presentation. A quick stop on your way to Banff or Lake Louise.

We went to check out the wolves at this refuge and got to experience a wolf hotel as well. Thee wolves are cared for and loved and get too play free in a large valley throughout the week. Great afternoon and very informative.

Very informative program about the current state of the wolf population in Canada and The U.S. You get to see the wolves in their cages, but no interaction at the park. There are opportunities they provide to go along on a hike with the wolves,...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... More
