Beautiful preserve with several types of wolves in large, natural enclosures. Be sure to go when they feed, so you can see them up close. I also recommend the "tunnel of vision" where you get to have a really up-close experience with the wolves from inside a viewing box (extra charge, but well worth it). The place is beautiful, and...

I visited with my husband and wish we had gone earlier in the day as I could have easily spent a day there. The opportunity to see the wolves so closely was wonderful. Watching the Canadian and Arctic wolves during feeding time was very interesting despite the language barrier. It was great to be able to observe the several different... More

We enjoyed this place so much that we stayed the whole day here. First, we visited the Canadian wolves during their feeding time. The keeper gave us a lot of interesting information about the pack and its way of living. Afterwards, we explored the area: there are several different kind of wolves (Arctic, European..), as well as domestic animals, like... More

You can get very close to the wolves and there were even two young whelps which we saw up close. Also not to crouded and mostly under trees, which was good since it was very hot when we visited

My friend and I had an enjoyable time here seeing the wolves, their cubs and feeding time. There is also a farm with piglets, goats, kids and chickens. And 2 places to eat.

to be frank, seeing wolves in a park did not interest me, but I was wrong. What a beautiful park. One, of course, has to go at a time when the wolves are being fed. We saw 7 Canadian wolves, 2 Polish wolves and their pup, and 4 Artic wolves. We went with our grandchildren who loved the sittings and... More

We went at a time when the wolves had lost their winter coat so looked a little skinny but this didn't detract from their presence. The keeper's talk was informative as we watched the Canadian wolves feed and then we had time to walk through the woods to see other types of wolves. These were harder to spot and the... More

If you love nature and animals then this is the place to go to. Amazing opportunity to see various species of wolves in this beautiful surroundings. Best time to go is feeding time so call the parc ahead to know when this is done. Went there with my son when it first opened, it was not as developed as it... More

This is an amazing opportunity to get to see wolves in their natural habitat. The park has been set up to teach about and preserve a variety of sub-species of Wolf. Great thought has been put into how the visitor gets to observe the Wolf. I particularly like the specially designed viewing platforms so your view of the wolves is... More

See wolves from Europe and North America in woodland setting. Add to that a small animal section for the young people in your family this becomes a good entertaining day out. Some knowledge of French will help locally as few people speak English.
