We enjoyed visiting the Arctic Fox Centre. The displays and guided tour was very informative. The Arctic Foxes that were in back of the centre were cute! Because of the time of year they were not white. Staff was friendly and welcoming.

The information is very informative and we love the video about arctic fox shown in the centre. However, the location is out of our way and unless you really love to know more about arctic fox, it's not worth the time to drive there.

We really enjoyed our time here. The exhibit is very informative. There were 2 foxes in a pen and they were simply adorable. We also hiked our behind the center and then went back to see the exhibit again. :).

This attraction is not worth going out of one's way to see. There are two foxes in captivity and numerous "taxidermied" foxes on display. The girl giving the orientation was good but if you have a limited time in Iceland, I would spend it elsewhere.
