My husband and I visited the Running Reindeer Ranch while on a cruise to Alaska. This was one of my favorite excursion. The owner was so nice and was very informed about the Reindeer. The Ranch had about 15 Reindeer that took a walk with...More
So much of Alaska has become "corporate" and scripted that Running Reindeer Ranch is a welcome contrast. Jane and her husband just love raising reindeer as their pets and as part of their family. And they are happy to share that friendship with you.

Sorry to just be responding, I just saw this. I’m glad you appreciated our helpers! I too am grateful for them! Depending on the day you came they could have been Alex, the UAF student who grew up the road, Jan, a friend joining us from Germany, or as above, Anthony with the long hair or Adam who helps me with training.
