The International Wolf Center, located in Ely, Minnesota, gives visitors a chance to learn about wolves and see them in a beautiful northwoods habitat. The main attraction are five live wolves who make up our ambassador pack.
The best time to see the wolves is first thing in the morning and then late in the afternoon. This is especially the case during hot summer months. If you can't make it early or late in the day, we recommend coming by at noon. Every day at noon we offer enrichment for the wolves, so they typically all come out and are visible through the massive auditorium windows. We also offer a unique Saturday evening program where the wolves get their weekly meals. That program is at 7 p.m.
The Center advances the survival of wolf populations by teaching about wolves, their relationship to wildlands and the human role in their future.
