Awesome experience

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.

We very much enjoyed our visit to this Reindeer Farm, we even learned that a Reindeer is actually a domesticated caribou. The lady that gave us our tour knew all the Reindeer and had names for most all of them and knew their different personalities. You could tell that she loves the animals and her job of teaching the visitors... More

When we first got to the farm, we were allowed to wander a bit and feed the elk that were kept there. Then we were led over to see the bison and after, the reindeer. They take you into the reindeer pen and give you food to feed them and you can pet the reindeer. Our guide was great with... More

Our children (ages 6 and 4) had a great time here at the Reindeer Farm. Your admission includes a cup of food for each person to feed the reindeer. Your tour begins with a guide telling you lots of facts about reindeer/caribou. They give you some rules for interacting with the reindeer, hand you a cup of food and let... More
