This Reindeer Farm in Palmer, Alaska is a unique opportunity to feed, pet, and walk among these gentle animals. They looked me in the eye and even seemed to want to pose for pictures. A cup of food is given to each visitor to feed to the reindeer so they follow you around wanting more. I walked in the center... More

Nice opportunity to get up close with reindeer. It's a kind of petting zoo. You walk between the animals and you can feed and pet them. The guides tell lots of interesting facts about the reindeer. There are also some elk at the farm. You can feed them but you can not get close to them. Price is 8 $,... More

The tour of the farm lasts about 30-45 minutes which was perfect with a 4 year old. The guide was awesome and the reindeer were even cooler. If you are in the area with or without kids, this place is definitely worth your 45 minutes. It cost us 22 dollars, but I considered a donation to keep the farm alive.

We visited the reindeer farm with some family and had a great time. The staff was helpful and provided a lot of details about the animals. We got to feed the reindeer which was a blast. I would recommend a visit.

If you can get to visit this place do it. The tour guides are great and being in the pen and feeding these animals is so much fun. They are gentle and lovable, not scary at all. I can say enough how fantastic this experience was!! We even got to feed the elk though you don't get to go into... More

We loved our visit to the reindeer farm. What a unique and affordable attraction. The reindeer walk right up and feeding them is an incredible opportunity to do something out of the ordinary. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions perfectly. We also enjoyed seeing the elk and feeding them. We did not opt... More

Stopped on our way from Denali to Anchorage. Perfect little detour. Fed reindeer from our hand in the pen. Super cool for the kids (9-12). Saw a 2 hr old baby elk. Fed elk too. Taught the kids how to catch & hold a chicken & baby rabbits. Pony rides or horse trail rides too. Cheap stop & takes as... More

This is the best activity in Palmer! Super fun for kids and adults, you get to interact with the reindeer by petting and feeding them. I took my parents and my in-laws, everyone was smiling and laughing as they were approached by the reindeer for their treats.

This place is a great place to take a stop by and look around. The reindeer are in their own large area, and other animals have their own areas as well. People can sign up for tours in the gift shop. The tour consists of a little lesson on the difference between caribou and reindeer, and antlers. (Turns out that... More

This was really enjoyable. If you have kids they will love this, they get to touch and feed reindeer and elk, and see dolly the bison. Actually learned a lot here myself.
