Very good experience, very good value, good road to facility

Firstly, we appreciated the paved road for most of the way into the Centre from the highway... icing on the cake it turns out. Good signage is in place to find the Centre, and we... read more

Firstly, we appreciated the paved road for most of the way into the Centre from the highway... icing on the cake it turns out. Good signage is in place to find the Centre, and we were greeted promptly and cheerfully by staff. The admission cost is very reasonable, and you learn a lot during the session. Wolves have been so... More

This is not our first time here, we went 10 years ago and are just as impressed this time as we were last. Our tour guide had amazing knowledge of each of the wolves, their habitat as well as the story of the wolves in North America. Very informative, engaging and interesting stop....not to mention the beautiful howl of the... More

If you think viewing wolves in a stinky, cage is a wilderness experience then go to Disneyland. Sad, sad looking wolves.

While the information at the beginning of the visit was excellent it ended with a hidden agenda message encouraging you to hate parks Canada and vote not for fiscal or public health in your next provincial election but for the protection of the wolf. While they advertise their wolfs can run free, they may be able to but what I... More

This is a wolf sancyuary where the owners and staff have a passion for caring for the wolves. It is very small however you can see the wolves up close. Make sure to take the time to listen to the staff presentation. It is not very long but very informative. We were lucky enough to be there at feeding time,... More

While the man explaining what they do there did an excellent job it was very expensive to see about 5 wolfs laying around.

Our family has been coming to the Northern Lights Interpretive Centre for many years. We are always amazed and impressed with the care of these majestic animlas and the knowledge of the people who live and work with them. We, as the human race, need to respect these animals much more and protect them. This centre educates and informs which... More

We were pleased that we stopped in here. Despite a very cold day, we stayed 90 minutes to see the beautiful wolves and listen to the interpretive presentation. Make no mistake - you will see wolves in enclosures. They are impressive animals, but the setting is far from natural. The upside, however, is that the operators of this facility are... More

Great place to learn about the wolves, there are 7 that stay here and they are used to inform the public of the importance of wolves in the wild. Staff are very knowledgeable and it's a great little place to visit for an hour or so.
