Ptarmigan hunting in Iceland


Ptarmigan hunting is the most popular wing shooting sport in Iceland and every year we have hunters from all over the world joining us.

Ptarmigan hunting is attractive for many reasons and is always a challenge, it is hard work, so you´d better be physically fit for long days of hiking up and down our mountains. The winter coat for the ptarmigan is white and therefore it stays close to the snow or on the snowline, so it can be tricky to see them.

Our guides are experts in Ptarmigan hunting and spotting the birds and will show you how to look for them.
