  • We did the after hours private tour and got within feet of one of the wolves. It has a small but informational visitor's center and the staff really care about their cause. It was perfect for my.wolf....  more »
  • The staff at the Wolf Education Centre was dedicated and clearly passionate about the work they do. Though we didn't see and wolves, our time at the centre was appreciated and educational.  more »
  • It was a dream come true. When we visited we were "warned" that we might not get to see any of the wolves but luckily we got to see one of them come REALLY near the fence. It was amazing!
  • I went there for my birthday 3 years ago! Even though it was in the summertime, it was still quite cold being up in the mountains. Winchester is a tiny little town of a population at 350. You'll get a kick out of driving into town and seeing the Winchester Gun hanging from the two wood posts that greet you as you driving to town. Sanctuary was beautiful! Easy walkable trails but, I suggest you have a good pair of hiking boots and wear your denim pants. They have Decks that you can stand on and look down at the wolves if they're out and about. They asked you to be quiet and not to howl they have signs everywhere for that. The lodge itself was handmade by the researchers that live up there and rotate shifts I should say every few months. They have their campers in their tents apparently that they stay in during the touring months. If you like to get out in nature, and respect it, this is a nice place to go. Oh and pack a picnic lunch!
