Absolutely loved the tour of this passion project. Be sure to book a few weeks in advance as the tours are only held on Tuesday and Thursday. We will definitely go back! They also have a nice little gift shop.

My husband and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Wolf Sanctuary. Denny, our tour guide, knew the history of every wolf. It is obvious that the staff-- almost all volunteers-- know these animals as individuals and care deeply about their well being. Denny explained why...More

We spotted this tour by chance. A small article in the Lancaster visitor guide. No hotel leaflets or even signage from the highways. Was expecting a tour lasting 1 - 1 1/2 hours. We were there for nearly 3 hours. The wolves were clearly visible...More

Visited with a group from neighboring Maryland. Our guide Denny, who has volunteered there for 11 years, knew every wolf by name and told us about the history of each wolf. Even though I have been an avid supporter of wolves in the West, I...More

Hi! I would like to know if wheelchairs are an acceptable form of taking the daytime tour. I have serious knee and low back issues and will be 6 months out of a laminectomy. I do walk but very, very limited. I will have family with me to help with the wheelchair. I also can push my own wheelchair over the terrain. And also do you have rentable wheelchairs there or should we rent them from someone else. I am coming in from Atlanta, Ga to visit family and they know I love wolves and would like to bring me there. Thank you for your time in this matter. I am Sharon Beaver.

I have someone in my group who is Low Vision and would do fine on the walking tour but we were concerned that she wouldn't be able to see the wolves in the dark. Is there any sort of lighting around the pens or is it just moonlight?

There probably is some low lighting, but I am not sure I have not attended a moonlight, depending on how early it starts it will still be light out. I really think the after dark is more about hearing the wolves than seeing... More
