Skagafjrur offers many possibilities for bird hunting and angling.There is excellent fishing in many lakes and rivers, and lakes on the Skagi peninsula are particularly popular with anglers. Sea angling is also available, as well as hunting for guillemot, goose or rock ptarmigan. And of course there is always the classic family pastime of fishing from the seashore or jigging a line off the pier.

Tour operators

  • Bakkaflt - Autumn Bird Hunting

    The Bakkaflt Travel service 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 a warmer and calmer weather.

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

    Bakkaflt can provide all equipment and transport need for your trip. You have to provide your own gun, ammunition, clothing and of course the hunting spirit Most of our guests like to combine a goose hunting trip with a few days hunting puffin & Guillemot on the sea.
