A JOYFUL experience! Very knowledgeable on the history and the anatomy of the reindeer. We all gathered inside for a short history of how Running Reindeer Ranch came to be and how it got its name. Then the walk with them into the forest was amazing and lovely to see them freely wandering and eating lichen in a natural habitat and running in between us. Then an hour or so later back inside for cookies, coca and more shared knowledge of reindeer. Fabulous!!
I could not have asked for a better morning than to spend it here at this reindeer ranch. We spent a week in Fairbanks for our honeymoon and I knew I could not leave without visiting this place. Reservations are a must because this is a private home/property. The story behind the ranch is amazing and so is the work they do. Jane is the owner and she’s awesome. She knows so much about them and is interested and able to answer all questions. The tour is over an hour long and it ends with a nice sit and chat with cookies and tea. There were lots of reindeer around. Lots of opportunities and views to take pictures. Great atmosphere and hospitality. If you are coming to Fairbanks I suggest you don’t leave without coming here.
