It was wonderful to experience the Alaska experience on a reindeer farm. We got to enjoy a heart warm welcome into a log cabin, saunter in the woods with Phoebe (reindeer) leading our way, learn about natures edible plants, and eat some yummy homemade treats. This is a tour to not be missed!!! Thanks for a wonderful experience!!

I had an awesome time with Graham and the reindeer! Relaxing walk through the forest learning about plants to make teas with, berries to eat and if the reindeer don’t eat the mushrooms neither will I!! Lol. Fantastic nibbles at the end too!

What a treat! We saw "the Alaskan Cistene Chapel," enjoyed a slide show of the beginning, got to know the owner, walked the forest with the owner and one of his reindeer (on a lead), saw the reindeer foraging naturally and eating things we didn't know they ate, and were accompanied by the scouting dog. We learned lots about edible forest treats and homesteading and ended with delicious treats from nature. Truly a trip worthwhile!

Graham did a great job with all the forest has to offer. We had an amazing time with Pheobe, the reindeer! She was awesome! She let us pet her and my son got to lead her through some of our walk. The dried pineapple we had afterwards was way better than what's in stores! Great job all around!
