Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary Tour

By Discover Banff Tours

The Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary tour provides an up close and intimate look at wolves and wolf-dogs. Gain a better understanding about wild wolves and their importance in the natural environment while also seeing first hand wolf behaviour through the wolfdogs at the sanctuary. This tour is an amazing opportunity to learn more about these magnificent animals, and provides a semi-private guided experience in a sanctuary setting. Also expect plenty of photo opportunities!

What you can expect

You will have plenty of photo opportunities and ample time to speak with the sanctuary guardian who will answer all your questions. This exclusive tour has limited availability and restricted numbers per tour to ensure the wolfdogs stay inquisitive and close during your visit.

Remember that wolfdogs are tame, but not domesticated. They will be curious and may approach very close to guests who are relaxed and exhibiting quiet behaviour. Loud noises, standing and shouting will frighten them away and limit your viewing chances.
