This really wasn't the experience we expected. Reindeer are not meant to be kept in a cage like setting, which is what she keeps them in. So when you come out to experience the reindeer, they are not very happy to see people. You are constantly watching your back to make sure they don't ram into you. They are very powerful creatures that can truly hurt you. Don't bring kids either. Her reindeer did not like kids AT ALL. Its actually quiet sad what you experience. These reindeer really deserve a better life than being used as her money makers. She chargers so much and all you get is a staged picture. And of course you get her talking your ear off about her life story, which really makes you dislike her even more. Honestly, I think these reindeer would have a better life if there weren't being used for her profit. I don't suggest anyone paying for this. Its just not worth it.

The tour was fantastic! People who work at the Running Reindeer Ranch were super passionate and knowledgeable, the reindeer were adorable, and the overall experience was amazing. I can't recommend this enough to anyone who is thinking of going there! I only wished that it wouldn't be as cold, but this is Alaska for you.

Very much enjoyed this unique experience. Loved the thrill of the reindeer running past us! The hand warmers were the best idea ever. Recommend feet ones too!
Disappointed Jane wasn't there for hot drinks after the walk, however we still got cookies!
Highly recommended 'Walk with Reindeer'.

We are Fairbanks locals who had never toured the ranch. We had the most wonderful time. Jane is very knowledgeable and was a wonderful host. She was very warm and welcoming, and we learned a lot. Highly recommend this tour!
