A beautiful filmed short documentary describing the life cycle of the arctic fox. It’s a story of a miracle, a story of how arctic foxes survive in the harsh Icelandic environment.

After a long and cold winter, a vixen gives life to fox cubs and the adventure begins. The cubs, that are born blind, are weaned from their mother only 10 weeks old and the lessons of life begin. Twelve weeks old the cubs leave the den, by then mostly managing on their own. They find a spouse and mark their territory. One year old they are bringing up a new generation of cubs with their first litter.

The Arctic Fox is a treat for nature and animal lovers alike.
