Two almost identical gray wolves in the Boundary Waters wilderness
The Wolves & Humans exhibit, along with many other fine displays, illustrates the wolf in an incredible, detailed, accurate, manner. Enjoy viewing the real live wolves that make the center their home. They are all delightful to watch as they all mingle together at the center in surroundings that duplicate their natural environment.
The wolves show their youthful nature---playing with each other, stalking ravens, wrestling trees, and always, always learning. Depending upon the level of interest of the group, wolf howling is also an option for the evening's entertainment!
The guided Boundary Waters canoe trip will continue the adventure, learning more about the great outdoor wilderness habitat of the wolf.
Your guide will navigate the group into areas of greatest opportunity to hear wolves. It is an awesome experience! Time will also be available for swimming, hiking, fishing, sightseeing, photography, and just plain enjoying the relaxing and beautiful world around you.
". . . You have a great crew [at River Point]. But, Chris [Wolf Howling Guide] is a gem! He led 6 greenhorns into the wilderness and provided outstanding guidance and leadership. His maturity and capability in providing everything everyone needed was quite obvious. He is wise beyond his years. The trip was awesome!"
-Cathy B., Cuyahoga Falls, OH
Know that while wolves in the wild are abundant, there is never a guarantee that they will "perform" their vocal melodies for your group. There will also be opportunities to enjoy some quiet fishing, view deer, moose, loons, beaver, otter, bald eagles, and a multitude of other birds - so bring your camera!
Contact River Point early for help in planning your special Wolf Howling guided canoe trip adventure. Permits for the very best entry points into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area wilderness are on a first come, first serve basis, and are necessary.
