Overview

OPEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, NO DROP-INS ACCOMMODATED. PLEASE CALL FIRST. Enjoy a walk through the boreal forest of Alaska with our curious and gentle reindeer. Olive, Jasper, Rufus, Daisy, Buttercup, Margarita and Rocket will be your guides as you enjoy the beauty of Alaska's interior. See them romp free through the forest doing "reindeery" things. After our walk we will return to the house for a light refreshment and to finish up the conversation. Each time you come will be a unique experience. We are open year round by appointment only. Same day reservations sometimes available but you must contact us in advance. Winter cut off temperature -65 F.(That's a joke, it really never gets that cold, we cut off when you don't want to do it, we are always game! Reindeer love the cold!) Book Online on our website or facebook page.

This was the best thing we did while in Fairbanks. It was very informative. The family and staff were all very accommodating. It was easy to find. I will do this again if ever back in Fairbanks.

thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Did a short hike with reindeer racing around us. Jane and her staff gave an interesting discussion but the best part was being around the reindeer on the short hike through the woods.
