Come enjoy an up-close and intimate look at wolves and wolfdogs.

This tour requires a booking in advance!

Gain a better understanding about wolf behaviour through the wolfdogs at our sanctuary and how this behaviour fundamentally differs from domestic dogs.

This is also a great opportunity to learn about the importance of wolves in our ecosystem, and why it’s so important to preserve them in our natural environment.

This exclusive tour has limited availability and restricted numbers per tour to ensure the wolfdogs stay inquisitive and close during your visit.

You will also have plenty of photo opportunities and ample time to speak with a sanctuary team member leading the tour.
