It has been over a hundred years since wild wolves roamed Pennsylvania, but you can still see packs in their natural habitat.
Wolf Sanctuary of PA in Lancaster County is a refuge for over 40 rescued wolves and wolf-dog hybrids. As you take a guided tour of the grounds, you’ll learn about wolf behavior and the conservation efforts that protect these amazing animals. Tours are an hour to an hour and a half in length and are suitable for all ages.
Looking for something to howl about? Visit for a Full Moon Tour, held nearly every month on the Saturday closest to the full moon. The grounds are open for the evening, and the sanctuary hosts a bonfire and live entertainment. Full Moon Tours are open to visitors ages 16 or older, and reservations are optional.
There are several tour options. Weekday public tours run on Tuesday and Thursday and require reservations in advance. Weekend public tours run on Saturday and Sunday and do not require reservations. For weekend tours, guests must arrive within a certain window of time (15-20 minutes before the tour). The sanctuary also holds private tours, which require reservations.
