Your Guide to Exploring the Haliburton Wolf Centre

The Haliburton Highlands is a year-round destination for adventurers. One of the most popular places to start your exploration is the Haliburton Forest, offering 100,000 acres of undeveloped wilderness for hiking, biking, camping, and winter recreation. Within the forest, you can also visit Ontario’s resident wolf pack at the Haliburton Wolf Centre. This centre offers an observatory where you can see these majestic animals up close and museum exhibits where you can learn all about the life of the pack! Stay with us at All-Season Cottage Rentals and access the adventures and experiences of Haliburton Forest right down the road from your cabin!

Haliburton Wolf Centre General Information

The Haliburton Wolf Centre is a 5,000-square-foot indoor facility featuring museum-style exhibits, a cinema for educational videos, a large indoor observatory, and a souvenir shop. The only way to view the wolves is through the one-way glass inside the building. During the summer months, you can join public wolf howls and howl along with the pack!

Keep in mind that the wolf enclosure is over seven acres and the wolves are only sometimes visible from the observation areas. You can purchase admission tickets online here!
