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.

My whole family loved this tour! The guide, Alex, was such a nice guy and very knowledgeable. I thought this would just be a way to see reindeer up close and wouldn't really be fun, but it was great. We petted, took pictures with, and...More

Words cannot express how beautiful and fun this was. I felt like I was in a Hallmark movie. Absolutely amazing and the cookies were delish.

To say this is awesome is an understatement. The people are very knowledgeable. Being able to walk with, pet, and pose pictures with Reindeer is AWESOME! Not to mention at the end, you get cookies! Would highly recommend this on an itenary!
