  • Absolutely wonderful experience. They were extremely kind, professional and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the reindeer and had adequate time petting and taking photos with the reindeer. Our tour guide, Tyrone, did an amazing job teaching us about these reindeer. He was very personable and charismatic. We did not feel rushed. Everything ran very smoothly. I left with a deeper appreciation for these animals.
  • This was by far one of the coolest things we did while in Alaska. RRR was awesome! We got to meet all the reindeer and the staff was incredible. Reindeer are definitely not dogs or horses. Don’t expect them to sniff you and become your best friend, but do enjoy the experience of being a part of the herd. It’s worth it. Tyrone, Grady and Zach led our afternoon on the ranch. It’s obvious that they love their jobs and we really enjoyed the conversation with them (about the reindeer and in general). We would have gladly stayed longer to chat if our toes weren’t so cold! Definitely bundle up more than you anticipate if it’s a cold day - there was more standing still than we expected so we got cold sooner than expected. I would also recommend a cane or walking stick if you are unsteady. The terrain was not tough to walk, but support is nice to have if you tire easily. If we are back in Fairbanks in the warmer months we will most definitely visit the reindeer again.
