A deer farm is a place in the mountains where reindeer live, with which you can "communicate" and feed the animals, learn about the family and the conditions of their maintenance in the park, as well as arrange a photo session and(or) ride a sled in a reindeer sled.
The deer farm is located in a very picturesque place - surrounded by massive ridges and a fir forest at an altitude of 1500 meters above sea level on the territory of the Gazprom mountain and tourist center, the Laura slope (the lower part of the H cable car) in Krasnaya Polyana (Esto-Sadok).
The deer farm is open all year round.
Guests of the farm can take a guided tour accompanied by an expert (experienced guide) on the territory of the farm where the Reindeer live. The tour lasts about 30 minutes. During the tour, visitors will learn what kind of animals they are, how they live on a farm in aviaries, what they eat and some interesting facts about the life of deer in the wild.
For a fee, you can treat the horned with their favorite delicacy-yagel, which the deer eat right from their hands, as well as, if desired, arrange a professional photo session with the deer.

In addition to the" stars " of the farm, several squirrels, ponies also live on the territory of the Deer Farm and there is a walking area with a small pond.
In winter, if desired and favorable weather conditions (when there is enough snow), you can ride a sled in a reindeer sled driven by a kayur on the farm, for a fee.
One adult deer can carry up to 300 kilograms. Therefore, for a company of up to four people on a farm, two deer are usually harnessed to a team, and for one or two guests, a small sled with one deer is used. The team is managed by an experienced kayur and an assistant.
Next to the Deer farm (opposite) is another theme park-Husky Park. Learn more about Husky Park…
