Don't miss out on going to the Reindeer Farm! My husband and I both loved this informative visit. Beautiful setting, educational, nominal cost! Lots of reindeer and elk with opportunities to feed both. There are also rabbits, chickens and horses. You will be so very happy if you plan a stop! 👍👍👍

We visited here to see the reindeer which we got to see and feed along with some other wildlife. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. While there we noticed they also did a horseback ride up the butte which we came back and did another day. It was a nice ride and the view from the top is awesome.... More

My cousin and I stopped at the Reindeer Farm because we had a really long drive and wanted a break, and we were so happy we did. It ended up being one of our favourite things out of a week long trip to Alaska. We saw horses, dogs, reindeer, elk, rabbits, etc. We got to feed the reindeer, which were... More

This was a really neat place located in a magnificent area. It was so amazing to be able to walk amongst the reindeer and feed them right from my hand.

We were greeted by a 5 week old reindeer that we were able to bottle feed! He was gorgeous. After being given a quick "101" on the reindeer pen do's & dont's, we all entered to feed them. It was great to be able to be right next to these animals. Awesome time and we highly recommend you visit this... More

This was my second visit to the Reindeer Farm, once in May 2005, and then last week, in May 2015. My vacations in Alaska would not be complete without spending some time with the reindeer!!! We drove to Palmer for the Knik Glacier Tour, and then a few miles over to spend time with the reindeer. What an idyllic day!!!... More

My husband and I visited the Reindeer Farm early May. Weather was perfect...no mosquitoes and very few tourists. Had a great tour of the working farm. The one-hour trail ride was worth the money! This was my 3rd riding attempt in my 48 yrs of life. The first two attempts - not so good. This ride was fun...they matched me... More

The Reindeer Farm was very informative and educational about these animals. The extremely fun part for me was that I was able to touch and feed many animal. The staff were fun and very friendly.

The Reindeer Farm is South of Palmer, down the old Glenn Hwy. The fun part is you get to go out among the Reindeer and feed them by hand. You get a little lecture about them and their history, before you actually get to get in the field with them. It's fun time for all.

The reindeer farm is a must when you visit the greater Anchorage area. It's a unique experience to be in the pen feeding the reindeer. My husband and I loved it and our kids are always asking when we're going back.
