Visits go every day at 11am at this time of year, follow a reindeer herder as you make your way up to the mountain enclosure, walk amongst reindeer, stroking and feeding them as the herder tells you more about them. Situated in the centre of the Cairngorms National Park, you will also enjoy beautiful views of the Cairngorm Mountains. The walk takes around 20 minutes over rough ground and can be very cold and snowy so make sure you've got some sturdy footwear and some nice cosy waterproof layers!
Spaces are limited so please arrive in good time for your chosen visit, as close to 10am as possible when we open is highly recommended as hill trips can sell out within 20 minutes of opening on busy days. We do not have a pre-booking system available so places are allocated on a first come first served basis.
For those less able you can visit a small group of reindeer in the paddock and exhibition at the Centre. There are quizzes and crafts for children and Santa will be around from 12pm - 3pm each weekend before Christmas and on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th!
