  • Such an amazing day out!! You do a lovely walk slightly uphill with amazing views then you come to the mountain side where you get to feed and pet the reindeer.. Definitely would visit again
  • Excellent guided tour! The guide is very informative and passionate, and reindeers are beautiful and friendly. Highly recommended.
  • A short but informative guided walk, watching the reindeers in action and hand-fed. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide.
  • So much fun! Even the freezing cold and pouring rain couldn't make us enjoy this experience any less - it was really something special. The staff were friendly and informative, the walk to the paddock was beautiful and the reindeer were amazing. We would do this again without hesitation.
  • Beautiful animals and we got to feed the raindeers. Hilltop hike with the Centre is recommended
