Multy-day: Autumn Bird Hunting

The Bakkaflöt guest house operates a short autumn Bird hunting season each year. We mainly hunt for Goose, Ducks and seabirds.

Goose hunting season opens on August 20th. The ideal time For Hunting is around September 10th when the birds come to the lowlands from the mountains seeking warmer and calmer weather.

Bakkaflöt have an agreement with a large number of local land owners in the skagafijor region so we are able to gain access to the prime hunting spots within a 30 minute drive of the Bakkaflöt base. Most of the hunting take place in corn fields early in the morning.

Bakkaföt can provide all equipment and transport need for your trip. Yo have to provide your own Gun,ammunition,clothing and of course the hunting spirit Most of our guest prefer to combine a goose hunting trip with a few days hunting puffin & Guillemot on the sea.

You can also find us in Facebook at Hunting in Iceland
