Additional Information

  • The hike is not long, but the nature walk has uneven terrain so good season appropriate walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing are required. In the spring and summer the mosquitoes could be bad, bring your repellent of choice. Our reindeer are tame but not trained so sometimes they decide to take a route not planned for. Bring your cameras and expect the unexpected.

  • We do not provide transportation. If you're going to be in town for several days, we recommend renting a car, otherwise Golden Heart Shuttles & Tours, 907-456-4555; Air Link Shuttle, 907-452-3337; or local taxis. Children under 3 need to be in a carrier.

This was truly an experience not just a touristy attraction. Mrs. Jane was very knowledgeable and it was clear the reindeer were her “babies” not just money-makers. It was an amazing walk with the reindeer at our side, mingling with their guess. It is definitely a must do when in the area. I will be back!

I really enjoyed my interactions and both our guides Yan me the owner. They were kind and super patient and explained in great detail all our questions. The interaction with the reindeers is unique and one of a kind you won’t get this close to these mystical animals. They are beautiful and sweet, do not be intimidated of their sizes or the antlers. Sweet as sugar that margarita. Only one thing that was difficult and it was in no control of the owner but they were renovating their kitchen so there wasn’t anywhere for our 3 hour walk. We stood most of the time and walked for about 30 minutes. I had back surgery so this would have been good to know before ha d. I was under the impression that we would be inside for the lessons and talks about reindeer than walk for 30 minutes and then go back inside. I totally understand it wasn’t in their control and that it wouldn’t have been safe for us because of the remodeling. But the experience was one of a kind and I can’t wait to come back.
