It is very easy to see and observe the wolves up close. If with children, they cannot go on any enclosure talks etc. The talks that you can watch all seem to convey the same information. It presents a limited experience for those with a...More
My husband & I visited on a trip to Banff last December. It was spur of the moment so we missed the interactive tour but we did the intro tour which was very informative! The wolf dogs are beautiful and it was nice to be...More
The staff really care about the animals they've rescued. Wolfdogs should not exist in nature, but irresponsible breeding has created them. They are NOT pets, but they have happy lives here at the sanctuary.
It was great to learn about wolfdogs, their behaviors and lives,...More
This is an amazing place to visit I highly recommend it! We booked in for an interactive tour, I would say book a couple days/ a week in advance to secure the time you'd like as spots fill up! The booking process was very easy....More
Friendly Staff with a great knowledge and happy to answer more questions. The Wolfdogs, Goats and Coyote have a nice big enclosure. I think the workers do their best to provide the Woldsdogs a good life even when they have to life in a enclosure.
This place is cool. From the education they provide on wolves to dogs to wolfdogs, to the up close and personal viewing and feeding of the wolfdogs themselves, it’s incredible. We weren’t able to get in for the interactive tour, so keep that in mind...More
The people here are doing amazing work and what they have built is nothing short of amazing. We did the Interactive tour, which cost a little more but it was all going back to the sanctuary. Getting such a close-up experience with these beautiful animals...More
This was my first time visiting the Sanctuary! I was surprised how busy they were but I was very happy to see that.
I did the interactive tour, and it was really cool to learn about the wolfdogs. I did not know much about wolfdogs...More
I visited Yamnuska for the first time in 2014 and have since watched them grow and grow. The sanctuary does amazing things for this misunderstood species and I loved the combination of learning and seeing. Looking forward to going back in 2019.
I absolutely loved it here!
Booking tickets online was simple and easy and the tour itself was informative and getting to give some of the Wolf dogs treats was just amazing!
I’d always wanted to go to the sanctuary after finding out about it a...More
Yes it's quite a long way from Banff - hence the $700. Try emailing the sanctuary or the tourist office in Banff. We were staying in Cochran so not so far and we had transport. The sanctuary is quite interesting but I think... More
Yes it's quite a long way from Banff - hence the $700. Try emailing the sanctuary or the tourist office in Banff. We were staying in Cochran so not so far and we had transport. The sanctuary is quite interesting but I think you could spend your $700 on more interesting places. Maybe cheaper to hire a car. There's likely to be a lot of snow in December.
