About

Unfortunately they were closed the morning we stopped by, but we were still able to visit the local fox. We had seen one in the wild the day before, but having the chnace to visit he up close was a treat. I would have loved to been able to learn more.

The Fox Kit Stole the Show!
Aug 2021
We stopped at the Arctic Fox Centre to learn a bit about the only carnivores native to Iceland. We started off with an interesting and informative video covering many phases of the fox's life, but it was a bit on the long side. The Centre was in a small but nicely maintained building, with several rooms displaying items describing how the fox lives in the harsh arctic environment. There were a number of stuffed foxes, showing the wide range of color combinations and sizes of the fox. There was a young lady at the Centre's front desk, and she was very helpful.

As we were finishing up our tour of the Centre, she asked us if we'd like to see her feed a fox kit that the Centre was raising, after it's mother had been inadvertently killed. We went out back to a large caged enclosure and the little fellow was looking at us from his side of the fence. When the young lady came out with it's meal, the kit went crazy ! It was squeaking and bouncing around like a shaggy puppy. After working on the frozen fish it was given, the fox left the fish for later and went over to play with the young lady who fed it. It was really fun to watch, and that little critter could certainly move FAST !

It was the most exciting museum that I have visited. The price was fair compared to how much you can see and learn. The staff was great and very talkative, the girls answered all of our questions. They have beautiful and tasty cakes as well. The fox’s name was Mist and she is the cutest thing ever. I really recommend this place :))

OK, but small...
Aug 2021
TBH was a bit disappointed, it’s nice, but very small. £30 for our family to see essentially one room of stuffed foxes. Didn’t really learn anything about them. Staff were inattentive, but friendly when we put the effort in to ask about them. Entry for a family of 3 and a coffee after was £30.

Apparently there was a live fox in a cage out the back, but we never saw it…

There is a 30 minute video, which you could probably get at home.
The stuffed foxes were quite interesting.
The 2 adult foxes were sent to Reykjavik earlier in Covid as this place was closed. We did see a single young fox in the outside shelter, cute but sad.

Nice museum if passing by the area. Several stuffed foxes with different research boards associated with studies completed or ongoing. There is a 30 minute movie which was also presented in English. The women working were nice. There is cafe here. Free coffee is offered plus you can purchase sandwiches or pastry products. Lovely view around the property and they had a live fox pup.

Strange Visit

Drove up to the Centre, saw an outdoor holding pen, and expected to see a fox. But, instead, there was a sheep?! In any case, saw 2 Arctic Foxes out in the wild in the National Park which made up for it.

Small museum

Small museum, you won’t need an hour to see it all. What I loved is that you’re allowed to touch the stuffed foxes inside!!! I’ve never seen a museum that lets you so that. It just asks that you be careful.

The star of this museum though, are it’s two live arctic foxes. Mori and Ingi. :-) they’re why we wanted to come. Oh they’re so cute. They have a big outdoor play area. I want to say it was Mori that came right up to the fence and was sniffing our hands.

Did the tour and took pictures of 2 Foxes in captivity. The centre does a really great job and it is well worth a visit.
