At Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center, experience the piercing gaze and spine-tingling howl of the dog's wild ancestor. Nestled in a scenic mountain setting, the center serves as a sanctuary for wolves, coyotes, and foxes. End the educational wildlife tour with the experience of a group "wolf howl." Note that you need to make online reservations for all tours, especially full-moon tours and volunteer opportunities. An "up-close and personal" photography session with several of the animals is also available for an additional fee.

  • My friends and I had the best time there on Saturday!! It was a special Holiday tour. Not only did we get the tour of all 19 of their wolves, foxes & coyotes, but everyone got a very special meet & greet with Wolf pup Raven!! Amazing experience!! After the tour, we got to check out their wonderful gift shop...best collection of wolf everything that I've ever seen!! They also have a lot of beautiful pictures of the same wolves that we just got to see in person, during our tour!! I recommend this place to anyone who's as in love with wolves as I am!!
  • It was okay, not good, not bad - it would have been great if we weren't going for a toddler... not a toddler experience! The website made it seem like they only had tours on certain days and since they list business hours straight through the day, we assumed that you could just walk around on your own if it wasn't a tour / Wildlife encounter time. So just for anyone else wondering, even if you do pay, you cannot walk around without being on a guided tour beyond the 2 front fences and the check-in building. The gal at the check-in desk said they did have room for us on the tour if we wanted to join, and it would have been $25 (per adult) for each of us and $15 (per child) for our 2 year old child. Our 2 (almost 3) year old just wouldn't have had the patience for or really care to take a tour (and I'm sure the guides and everyone else on the tour appreciated not having a 2 year old talk through the entire tour asking 8 million questions over and over about the animals and running around)... he just wanted to go see the animals from a distance, like the National Wildlife Refuge. And I'm pretty sure all the tours go inside the enclosures, which he is also not ready for and could not behave safely - they do say on their site tours are not recommended for anyone below the age of 5, and I'd agree with their recommendation; however, I didn't realize that basically meant do not visit if you are under the age of 5 since it's only meant to be a tour guided facility - nothing you can pay an admission to just view from behind the fenced areas. Our son did get to see a couple foxes that were in the 2 front fences in the entry way, and the gift shop had a really nice variety of products though, so if it's on the way, you could go just for that if you have a toddler or baby... but know it's a quick trip and you won't see much of anything. We won't go back until we have a child old enough to do the tour safely and who would want to actually understand and care about the tour to make it worth the time and $ for us.. and to respect everyone else trying to listen to the tour, but we would like to come back when that time comes.
