We offer hunting trips to Iceland. Arrange by guides with decades of experiance. Since we offer great variant of hunting trips, wich can be combined with each other.
Goose and duck hunting takes place on some of the best private properties in Þingeyjarsýsla and Eyjafjörður. The hunting areas are variable where we offer both morning and evening hunting, depending on the hunters wishes. The hunters are accompanied by a guide the whole time and he picks the hunting areas and takes care of lining up decoys.
Arctic Fox winter hunting is a great and unique hunting experience. They are very intelligent and therefore hard to get. They are also fast runners and can disapears in a moment. The arctic fox is a cunning animal and is also a great hunter. Hunting a hunter is extremely demanding task and specially when the hunt is mostly done in the night-time. The arctic fox is on the prowl over the night, so hunting a white fox in a snowy environment can get a bit tricky.
We offer great ptarmigan hunting in one of the best hunting areas in northern Iceland. Ptarmigan (Rock Ptarmigan) hunting is by far the most popular shooting sport in Iceland. The ptarmigan population has been increasing in Iceland and last season (2010) was one of the best in many years.
Iceland is the home to one of the world's largest colonies of puffins. Over half of the worlds population of the Atlantic Puffin breeds in Iceland. It is estimated that around 3 million pairs breed in Iceland each year thats 6 million puffins, but only 70% of the total are breeding birds. So the total population of puffins in Iceland is between 8 and 10 million birds.
It is possible to go hunt seabirds from both Húsavík and Hauganes. It is possible to interweave seabird hunting with goose-, duck- and/or ptarmigan hunting. This all depends on the weather and circumstances each time but this can be decided and arranged without much notice. In all hunting trips hunters are escorted by well experienced guides.
