As strange as it sounds, we will focus on the second point, the difficulty to meet them and it will be the purpose of this tour :
how to approach them ?

This tour is decicated to the people who are looking for the challenge and the wilderness. You can, with no doubt,
meet an arctic fox in Hornstrandir nature reserve and come back with the best shoots of foxes of your life.
Here it won't be the case, you will learn the habbits of the foxes, their way of seeing, how to approach them despite of the wind...
You will meet wild foxes, that is said some foxes in their native environment and not impregned by humans.

A wondeful walk

We will walk five hours and will discover a beautiful peninsula. We will hide to see the foxes from close and if we are lucky
we will see white tailed Eagle or Gyrfalcons, Eider ducks... Mountains, strange stones and basaltics columns will be at the program...

No particular difficulties

No prior knowledge is required. The walk is long but not difficult.
Come with hiking shoes and different layers of clothing to adapt to the time of day.

    L’accompagnement de Rodolphe fut exceptionnel, il nous a communiqué toute sa passion de l’incroyable nature dans laquelle il vit. Il maîtrise la faune et la flore locale comme personne, nous avons pu observer une multitude d’oiseaux et goûter les plantes telles que l’angélique, la roquette, l’herbe à huîtres, le thym ... Sans parler des oiseaux dont j’ai oublié le nom et des baleines.
    Et nous avons eu la chance d’observer les renards polaires, moment magique.
    Cette journée fait partie des tops de nos expériences en Islande.
    Nous sommes rentrés épuisés mais heureux.
    Je recommande chaudement cette activité ! - 7/18/2019
