I have now been to the Running Reindeer Ranch on several occasions for walks and for yoga! All have been truly magical experiences and it is the number one place I love to take out of town guests. The folks at the ranch really care for and love their reindeer and are so knowledgeable, making it a fun and educational experience. The reindeer are friendly, fun and playful. You are able to walk with them through the forest, take photos, even feed them at the end. I would (and probably will) do this again and again.

We had a walk in the winter at -30°F. It was wonderful. We learned so much about these beautiful animals and had a true "hands-on" experience!
Handwarmes and hot drinks afterwords made sure, we always felt comfortable!
Great experience for everyone!

I took my 8 year old daughter and we had a magical time walking with and feeding the reindeer. The staff went out of their way to take her under their wing and make sure she had a great time.

It was really fun to have you and your daughter join us! She was such a good sport dealing with both very cold temperatures and spirited reindeer! I think her and Elsa did a splendid job hitting it off with one another. Fun for us to experience the two of you traveling together! Hope the two of you have many more adventures ahead of you and that you come join us again. It's not nearly as cold in the summer and the reindeer are oh, so much more mellow!

We LOVED our trip to Alaska in July 2019; especially our visit to the Running Reindeer Ranch. The owners, Jane and Doug, take guests on hiking tours of their beautiful, tree-covered property, accompanied by a herd of friendly, delightful reindeer. Tours start with a very informative talk on reindeer habits and habitats, and includes safety info and an introduction to your reindeer hiking companions. The hike is easygoing, through beautiful terrain. The reindeer frolic to-and-fro and run up to you regularly for hugs and affection. It is an enchanting experience! The hike concludes with refreshments, a chance to talk more with fellow hikers and time to ask more reindeer questions. We highly recommend this outing!
