The Arctic Fox Center is a popular new destination for people travelling in the Westfjords. It has a cafe, museum and accepts volunteers to help with monitoring local populations, looking after rescued cubs and the running of the center. The museum offers insight into the natural history of the Arctic fox, informed by the center's scientific research and information gathered by other Icelandic scientists such as the hugely influential Pall Hersteinsson, it also gives historical context to Iceland's complex relationship with the Arctic Fox - a history of hunting, fur trade and misinformation surrounding their behaviour. Information is in Icelandic, English and German and tours are often available. The center has also become a community hub for Sudavik and has regular activities throughout the summer. In the summer months June - August the center is open every day from 10-22. In winter you can visit the house by appointment.
