Had a great time at the Reindeer ranch even with COVID precautions! The experience was 2.5hrs and you get to interact with the Reindeer, pet them, get pictures and learn all about them. Definitely worth it!

This was absolutely amazing! It is no wonder it is one of top-rated activities in Fairbanks! I went with a long-time Alaskan, and we both loved it. I wasn't sure about going, only because it was a little expensive, but it was worth every penny. We got to pet the reindeer, walk with them, learn about them, and see them (including some yearling ones) out in nature for about 2 hrs. They are such fascinating, beautiful and sweet creatures - I would highly, highly recommend this memorable, delightful and unique activity to anyone.

My boyfriend and I consider the day we went to the Reindeer Ranch the highlight of our trip. Jane and everyone were EXTREMELY hospitable and friendly! It's no surprise that reindeer were also very calm, curious, and overall lovely. We learned so much about reindeer and their life and habitat. We loved feeling like a part of the herd where we would walk with reindeer, pet them, take pictures of them and with them, and watch them digging the snow and being goofy. The only suggestion I would make is that that would be lovely to feed them if that's a possibility. We really appreciated how prepared the staff was for covid. They disinfected everything, gave us hand sanitizer first to sign a waiver, and reminded everyone to keep their masks up. We felt very safe. Be prepared for the cold, though! We are very thankful for this outstanding experience. We will definitely come back in the future! Also, I bought some of the soap made from Buttercup's milk. It is amazing, I highly recommend it!
