  • A super experience for all three generations. Exciting to meet the reindeer and get the opportunity to hand feed them. Good uphill walk through lovely scenery. Very informative rangers who were fun...  more »
  • An amazing and emotional experience up on the mountain with the herd. You get to hand feed around 30 reindeer whilst having talks from knowledgeable keepers and guides. Terrain is manageable by old and young alike who are fit and healthy. In readily soft to the touch and gentle creatures. Trip lasts around an hour and a half.
  • Great centre with the friendliest staff. Well kept and lots of interaction for the children. Unfortunately we missed the hike to the herd but found enough to do in the stables to keep us entertained, they also gave us a 12 month voucher to knock off the stable entry price off a future hike.
