Running Reindeer Ranch started, as many animal-related hobbies do, with one cute creature: just a single reindeer that owner Jane Atkinson’s daughter wanted. Then the daughter went off to college, and Jane? Now she owns seven reindeer. Head to their property any time of year (but by appointment only) to walk around the trails of the boreal forest in the company of the gentle beasts. Jane, a lifelong Alaskan, has a deep love and knowledge of the natural surroundings and, of course, her reindeer herd. While this may sound like a kid-friendly event, Jane’s tours are definitely more for adults who love nature—though a desire to get your photo taken with herd members also helps.
