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 a unique experience and Jane personalizes the visit. Given weather conditions this time of year in the area, it would be most convenient if RRR 'partnered' with a local transportation company [Hampton's] to get to the ranch. [We went by rental auto and...More
