  • My daughter and son-in-law love wolves. While visiting them from NZ, I celebrated my birthday. My birthday gift - the opportunity to take part in the photography walk with the wolves. It was the best ...  more »
  • The structure with all those cages is not the best but I think it's the only way to appreciate these beautiful animals in complete safety. The guys that run this Center are highly trained and while visiting tell everything there is to know about the world of wolves. I recommend everyone to pay him a visit!

  • Cool little sanctuary. Not too many wolves but love the information (wasn't too preachy) . We were able to see the wolves right up close a d you can tell they are treated very well. They look calm and happy
  • Amazing place to visit! It's awesome to be able to see these animals up close and learn about them. Great with our group and our kids. The atmosphere here is friendly and the staff are very knowledgeable and passionate about. Definitely a great place to go learn and a great place support as well. Definitely will be returning here for another visit and wolf walk. Thanks guys!
  • The knowledge these people have of wolves is astounding days the experience was phenomenal. I could have spent the entire day there.
  • The owners Casey and Shelly and staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, safety came first whether it was the enclosures or going on the walk. The owners were the Alphas which was cool too see humans run a pack, at the same time its all about the wolves. Enclosures were well suited for the wolves inside and they are well taken care of, the government says more wolves (4x) can be inclosed in what fits 2-3 comfortably. Good thing the owners know better. Cant wait to go back for another wolf walk!
  • This place is awesome! On our first time visit, we went on one of their photography wolf walks, and also got our picture taken as a keepsake with a 6 month old wolf puppy. On our second visit, we took family from out of country, and went on another photography wolf walk. We ended up walking with the now full grown "puppy" that we had our picture taken with the first time. It was awesome, and our family loved it!

Where to stay in Golden

For convenience and proximity to local shops, stay at one of the lodges or bed and breakfasts located within the grid-like streets of the town center. If you want a bit more space to enjoy the natural settings, look out of town to nearby Edelweiss, where you'll find a range of inns and lodges just off the Trans-Canada Highway. If skiing is your main game, look west along Kicking Horse Trail, where you can stay at the base of the nearby ski gondolas.
