The small town of Leavenworth in the Cascade Mountains, just east of Stevens Pass and just west of Wenatchee, has been one of the most popular destinations in the state of Washington for a very long time. When you go there you can entertain yourself to no end in town with great shopping opportunities and some incredible eating establishments. If what you’d prefer is outdoor recreation, there’s a long list of activities available to do in the surrounding area including skiing, rafting, hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, swimming, boating, fishing, mountain bike riding, horseback riding, and more. If you or your family are animal lovers, one of the best attractions in Leavenworth you’ll want to visit is the Leavenworth Reindeer Farm.
When you book a tour at the Leavenworth Reindeer Farm, you’ll be treating yourself to an extremely unique experience. First, you’ll be learning a lot as the guides will give you some great background information, including some fun facts you’ll be able to impress friends back home with. You’ll learn what reindeer like to eat, what parts of the world they live in, and more. Curious children will love this part of the tour.
Once you’re led into where the reindeer call home, the fun really starts. Reindeer are extremely gentle and they feel comfortable walking towards both the adults and children. The experience of having a real reindeer eat right out of the bowl you’re holding, or from the leaf covered branch you have, is something you won’t soon forget. There they are, standing right in front of you and moving all around you, some amazing creatures that you normally only see in a greeting card or on a televised cartoon. Take your time and watch them wander from person to person. Watch the young ones scamper around the pen. You’ll want to remember this for a very long time.
Speaking of making memories, the helpful staff at Leavenworth Reindeer Farm will also do a great job of helping you get photos of your kids or your entire family with the reindeer around them. Can you say “next year’s Christmas card?”
All the fun does not just take place inside the reindeer pen. The Leavenworth Reindeer Farm is a beautiful location that also features some swings for small children, a historic barn, some vintage and antique farm equipment, and of course Santa’s sleigh. There are also other animals located there too like horses, chickens, geese, and pigs. There is a good amount of scenic beauty too, both on the farm and because of the evergreen trees and mountains around you.
Leavenworth is a great area for the whole family and has a lot to offer. A visit to the Leavenworth Reindeer Farm is a great way to make it one of your best family vacations ever.
