    Visits last from 2 hours to a full day.

    Over 4 hectares of forest at the heart of the Orlu National Wildlife Reserve, where you can get to know the park's different packs of twenty-five wolves.
    To get to know them better, we advise you to listen to the carers' comments during feeding sessions (around 2 or 3 feedings a day / see schedule below). You'll get to know the new family of Mackenzie-type Canadian wolves at a feeding session or in the viewing tunnel.

    The visit continues with the mini-farm next to the trout pond.
    Young and old alike will be delighted to see the 3 little pigs, sit on the tractor, stroke Mr. Seguin's goat, meet the rabbits including the Géant des Flandres (largest rabbit), observe the hens, roosters, guinea pigs and baby chicks... A timed track lets you know if you're running faster than the Wolf!

    The Maison des Loups also offers a range of activities in the park:
    - an auditorium,
    - a storytelling square
    - an archaeological workshop,
    - a gold-digging experience,
