Photography Tours

Wild Spirit offers a unique chance to photograph wolves in an up-close and personal setting while inside our spacious and wooded enclosures. Our knowledgeable tour guides will work with you to ensure you get the best photo opportunities. Guests will have an average of four enclosures they can enter with a tour guide, with more enclosures possibly added depending on time.

Rules and Reservations


Pricing is $50 per person, per hour with a two-hour maximum.
Photography tours are by reservation only. We recommended you contact us two-weeks in advance when scheduling your tour to ensure availability. All photographers inside the enclosures must be eighteen-years of age or older. No children are allowed inside or outside the enclosure during the photography tour. All guests joining the photoghraphy tour most watch an eight-minute safety video before entering the enclosure, so guests should arrive a few minutes before their designated tour time. Due to the shy nature of the animals you will be escorted in with, individuals hoping for socialization will be disappointed.
To make reservations, please call us at 505-775-3304.
