Our family has, over the years, been more into gift experiences than stuff and this was an excellent experience! It was easy to book the gift certificates, easy to redeem them and overall a really fun way to spend a family afternoon. We did the intro tour and the staff were very well informed about the animals. We learned a lot and the animals themselves were very active and entertaining. As with people they all had their own personalities and likes/dislikes of the food they were provided. The most fun part was when some of them started howling and others responded. Very nice visitor centre, clean washrooms and a nice variety of souvenirs for purchase. We will be back!

We did the interactive tour and got to enter two enclosures with five wolves total. It was a very cold December day, but it was worth every chill! Such a great experience, and our guide was passionate and knowledgeable. We loved experiencing all the different events throughout the day as well. I would highly recommend visiting whenever you can!

What an amazing experience, we did the Interactive tour which was wonderful to be that close to these beautiful Woldogs. The tour guide was very informative and you could tell how passionate she was about them. We walked around the trails to see the other Wolfdogs in their enclosures and chatted with other staff members who were always happy to share information. We will be back for a visit in the better weather, the Wolfdogs didnt mind the minus 22 and were happy howling away. The gift shop is so reasonably priced and it helps support the Sanctuary, definitely well worth a visit.
