The Arctic Fox Centre in Súðavík is a research and education centre for Iceland’s only native land mammal, the Arctic fox. The centre consists of an education exhibition detailing the biology and social structure of the fox as well as detailing the fox’s significance on Icelandic culture and tradition.
There is also a cosy coffee house where home-made cakes, waffles, soups and bread are served daily with local arts and crafts on display.
The Arctic Fox Centre serves as the areas information centre and from there you can find details on all that there is to see and do in the area.
Every summer we perform field research on the isolated Hornstrandir nature reserve where the Arctic fox is protected from hunting along side running our popular museum and café. To help us do all of this we like to take on volunteers from all walks of life and all over the world.
