Jane and her staff were wonderful. She tells a great story of how this vision of her daughter became a reality. We learn so much about the reindeer and had a fabulous time interacting with them and playing with them.If you were ever in Fairbanks you really need to take the time to go visit with them.We will go back in the future.

Jane and her crew showed us an amazing time learning, working and walking with the reindeer all 13 of them. Her best friend and working dog, garnet steals the show as well. For an even better time stay over in the sweet and nicely appointed comfy guest house. Relaxing and wonderful and must do.

The Reindeer of course!! This tour has done a fabulous job of keeping everyone safe with Covid. One little drawback is there is no place to get warm BUT they do emphasize warm clothing. Several people on our tour just had tennis shoes. Their feet were probably freezing. As long as you are dressed for the weather you will be warm. My niece was visiting me here in Fairbanks and it is the one thing that I said we must do. She was thrilled.

A must for all. Wear warm clothing and be prepared to walk in snow, you are out side for at least 2 hours. Make sure you watch the videos before coming on the ranch. They are helpful. The Reindeer where lots of fun, Jane and her staff make sure you get a well rounded experience. Petting the reindeer and taking photos to the educational talks. Oh and the home made cookies add a special touch.

Running Reindeer Ranch is definitely a must do when visiting Fairbanks. Jane is friendly and gives a great talk about the reindeer. It’s a beautiful place where you can interact with and see the reindeer move in the beautiful forrest. It’s definitely an experience to remember. There’s plenty of photo opportunities available with the many reindeer moving around, they are able to be touched with no issue and Jane explains the right way to approach them and to avoid touching their antlers as they do not take kindly to it. After the walk you are treated to hot chocolate and some wonderful cookies while Jane answers any questions you may have. If you come to Fairbanks make sure to put Running Reindeer Ranch on your things to do list!
