Camp Wolf Willow Birding Day Tours – enjoy this beautiful valley in 2023


Self-Drive Birding Tour

Camp Wolf Willow is a natural oasis situated on the east bank of the beautiful South Saskatchewan River valley south of Saskatoon, Canada. This private site has a grassy coulee with a small stream plus a wooded valley offering several km of hiking trails. Beavers have dammed the stream where it enters the river creating a bird-rich wetland. The camp has its own private beach and winery.

Camp Wolf Willow Birding Tour Options

Option 1. Custom private guided birding tours are available on many dates for individuals, couples and families who wish to overnight at Camp Wolf Willow. You may use your own tent or camper or rent one of their famous luxury tents (glamping). Click Camp Wolf Willow for details about camping options and their restaurant menu.

Option 2. During another special day trip in September 2022 you may witness the spectacle of hundreds of thousands of Snow Geese resting on a nearby water body. Later at sunset, you can watch the setting sun from the top of the river valley while listening to calls of coyotes plus thousands of Sandhill Cranes and geese as they fly low over our heads to roost on the river’s sandbars for the night.
