The reindeer farm is outside of Anchorage and was fantastic. The people and farm has horse back trails up the butte and the tour was amazing. The girls and guys that work there are fun and love their job. What a great experience this was!

We ❤️the reindeer farm! Staff was super friendly and did a great job educating our family on their animals--reindeer, baby moose, bison and elk. A great experience and a wonderful way to learn about hobby farms and animals. Would highly recommend it for all!
