About the Hunting tours
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 has an agreement with a large number of local landowners in the Skagafjörður 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 takes place in cornfields 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
The hunting period is from the 1st of September until the 15th of March.
In our area, we can catch ducks all through this period, but most of them are from 1 September to 15 October. We often have a duck in the goose hunting trips, but if we are only aiming to hunt ducks we set up floating duck in the afternoon at ponds we know are popular then we wait for darkness, usually, the greatest flights are just before sundown when the bird is getting to there sleeping grounds. In this hunt, things are quick and often very fun and challenging.
Duck hunting is a great addition!, for example, take one evening of duck hunting out of 3 days of goose hunting for a great experience.
