About Running Reindeer Ranch, Fairbanks

Running Reindeer Ranch, Fairbanks Reviews

  • This was the highlight of my trip to Alaska. I learned so much about Reindeer that I feel that I have a pretty good general understanding on them. I enjoyed the ability to walk with them and to watch their behavior. What is best about Running Reindeer is knowing that my visit doesn't negatively impact them (like things such as riding elephants or pictures with wild animals). I also liked that they are "family" and will not be eaten after I leave. I had a lovely time and would recommend this to everyone visiting Fairbanks.

  • I can not possibly say enough about this whole experience. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. In -20 below temps it felt warm and this is why.... Jane intertwined knowledge with meaningful stories and her passion for these beautiful creatures. I can't even describe it in words.

  • Magical walk through an amazing winter wonderland with the reindeer! The kids loved petting the reindeer and on our second visit, they even got to feed the reindeer some lichen. Jane and Alex are both extremely knowledgeable and clearly care deeply about the animals. Highly recommend this place!

  • Learned a lot about reindeer and caribou while hiking with the reindeer. This trip was amazing from start to finish. This is for animal and learners both. Also, their cookies are the best!

  • We had a splendid time at the ranch! The whole tour is a very personal experience and we got a great insight into the life and history of the reindeers. The reindeers at the ranch are the sweetest creatures and like to walk with you and get petted. A must go, not only for the cookies!
