Cafe Dunhagi
Cafe Dunhagi is a restaurant specializes in local cuisine. Fresh local fish, Icelandic lamb, vegetarian specials and homemade breads and desserts to die for. We use local herbs and spices from the fjord and serve a wonderful selection of wine and beer for your pleasure. A place of story telling. I have put together a wonderful collection of old photographs of the people that settled this beautiful fjord. The photos tell a remarkable story of survival, adverse conditions and a colorful culture that has shaped Iceland to what it is today. The Cafe is located in one of the oldest buildings in the fjord. When you walk through the door you'll take a step into the past. You can browse the collection of historic photos assembled by the native owner while dining on local cuisine in the warm and cozy interior. Aside from her skills as a chef, the owner is known for her atmospheric music as well as her knack for storytelling. In the summer months, you can take in Icelandic culture at Dunhagi´s weekly events, which include author readings, concerts, and plays. Our goal; To create a memorable event for our customers in a place where you can enjoy thoughtful food, beautiful wines while being surrounded by untouched nature and unprecedented bird colonies a footstep away.
The Arctic Fox Center
The Arctic Fox Centre is a non-profit research and exhibition center, focusing on the arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) - the only native terrestrial mammal in Iceland. The Arctic Fox Centre was established on September 15th 2007 in Sudavik Westfjords. Founders were 42, mostly local people, tourist operators and municipalities in the Westfjords. All of which share their interest in the arctic foxes and believe in increasing ecotourism in Iceland. The idea of the Arctic Fox Centre comes from prof. Pall Hersteinsson, University of Iceland and he serves as a quality witness for the center. The long term aim is to collect all available knowledge and material relevant to the arctic fox in past and presence.  We house an exhibition focusing on educating material:  About biology and history of the arctic foxes as a species.

About the status and specialities of the Arctic Foxes in Iceland and other regions of its distributional range.
