In some areas, you may even be lucky enough to see them up close, as they can be incredibly trusting. They have been seen very close to houses and, in some cases, they have even invited themselves in. At present, the arctic fox lives in arctic and alpine areas of tundra in Eurasia, North America, the Canadian archipelagoes, Siberian islands, Greenland, Iceland, and Svalbard.

After 21 days, it arrived in Greenland. But it did not stop there. The fox subsequently continued its Arctic odyssey all the way to Ellesmere Island in Canada.

The distance of 3, kilometers was completed in only 76 days, according to the Norwegian Polar Research Institute. The average daily distance of the fox was 46 kilometers.

Similarly, in an adult female arctic fox in the Canadian Arctic set off on a journey. She traveled more than 2, miles in total but over a longer period of months. The fox clocked 1, kilometres in 21 days and arrived in Greenland on April Her journey brought her to Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, in time for Canada Day on July 1,   Biologist David Macdonald studied foxes at close quarters for years.

For a time, he had foxes living at home, which he recounted in his book Running with the Fox. Desert Landscape in Greenland. Blue Arctic Fox Arctic Deserts & Arctic Foxes.

The fox walked about 2, miles, starting out in Norway and ending up in Canada. Her trek began when she left the island of Spitsbergen in Norway. Three weeks later, she was in Greenland, and less than three months after that, she had managed to hike to Nunavut, Canada.

Just 21 days after leaving the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, an arctic fox had arrived in Greenland. And in less than three months, she made it to Canada. She averaged nearly 30 miles a day.
