International Wolf Center

Enjoy the world famous International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota on the day of your arrival at River Point. No trip to the North Country and the Boundary Waters is complete without a tour of this important wolf educational center. The center has something of interest for all ages.

Since the Wolf Howl guided Boundary Waters group trip has a focus on wolves, why not view 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!

Continue the Adventure

Your Wolf Howl guided group trip will continue the adventure, learning more about the great outdoor wilderness habitat of the wolf.

Your guide will navigate the group into parts of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area offering 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.

Know that while wolves in the wild are abundant, there is never a guarantee that they will “perform” their vocal melodies for your group. They may be silently watching your group and you will never know it. There will be many opportunities to enjoy some quiet fishing, view deer, loons, beaver, otter, bald eagles, and a multitude of other birds – so bring your camera!  

Contact River Point early for help in planning your Wolf Howl Guided Group Trip. 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.
