Arctic Fox Center
The Arctic Fox Center, tucked away deep in the tiny Westfjords village of Sudavik, is dedicated to the only land mammal native to Iceland. The nonprofit research institution and exhibition center was set up in 2007 by a group of enthusiasts and scientists to collect all kinds of information about the animal. Located inside a renovated farmstead (one of the oldest buildings in the area), it offers an exhibition on the arctic fox, which explains how it probably arrived in Iceland via ice floes from Greenland, is larger than the European fox, and has a distinctive dark blue summer coat that turns white in winter. The venue also has an onsite café and a couple of orphaned foxes in the backyard.
