For a few dollars, you get a really interesting tour, visiting about 5 different pairs of wolves. You get quite close to each pair and you can hear about how they ended up at the sanctuary. It is not a zoo! Although wolves would prefer...More

We went because we had time and our daughter likes wolves. The tour was sold out, so we didn't get to go. We did see some wolves and took some pictures. The staff was very friendly and gets an A-plus. There's just not much there.More

Thank you for your response. We do try to accommodate everyone and unfortunately sometimes it cannot happen, however that is where the "walkabout" tour was created. It is a condensed version, less people, a bit more of a fee, yet it is packed with valuable...More

The closer it gets to summer, the further out you should make advance reservations especially if it is a weekend. We suggest 1 week. Thank you.
