I arrived early to visit the wolf center, and was surprised to learn so much about this pack of untamed wolves from the knowledgeable staff.

Then, it was on the canopy tour, which was fascinating and exhilerating. To get there, we took a ride in a van, followed by an enjoyable paddle up a remote lake, then a hike up a hill to the canopy.

It was much more challenging then I'd expected, with some amazing views and interesting facts from the well-informed guides. Met some great people and had a fun day in the privately owned forest. They even showed us the submarine (but sadly, government rules forced this specific attraction to close).

We did the Walk in the Clouds Canopy Tour and loved it! Our guide Willow was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed "walking in the clouds". Well worth the $ 95 which including entry to the wolf viewing. I like this better than ziplining because you can go as slow as you want and enjoy the scenery!

We took our 8 year old son, whose favourite animal is the wolf. I had read the reviews on tripadvisor and new what to expect. Although the wolves have 15 acres or so to roam in, it is an enclosure and they are fed at the viewing platforms (although the staff did say if anything manages to get into their enclosure they will hunt it, like squirrels and a porcupine once)

Very reasonsonable price, good educational films on wolves and bears, nice exhibits and very knowledgable and friendly staff, who were willing and around to answer any wolf question you had.

We arrived and found the whole wolf pack sunbathing by the viewing platforms, including all four new female pups, which were soooo cute! I am not one for zoos and I think some of the reviews are unkind, when would a zoo offer a 15 acre enclosure?!?

We personally loved it and it is one of my son's highlight of the whole holiday, he exhausted the batteries on the camera taking pictures and really did not want to leave after 3 hours.
