What you'll do
We will start by going to the Hornstrandir nature reserve by boat, in Hesteyri exactly. On site we will study the mores, habitats, visions of the polar fox by walking towards our place of observation. We will hide to wait for the arrival of foxes and then we will walk to try to cross foxes in a different environment.

I am a tour operator and I organize daily excursions for biologists and photographers to bring them closer to the polar foxes. I know the fox mores and the fjords like my pocket and I know how to rebuild the course of foxes to find them quickly. I propose you to see wild foxes in the Hornstrandir nature reserve, so this is a unique and valuable experience.

Where you'll be
Hesteyri is an ancient village in the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. It is currently inhabited only in summer and we will go on the eastern slope that no one borrows, far from the few hikers who could harm our research. We will evolve on the slopes of a mountain along the sea between rocks and beaches in a beautiful setting.
