Goose Hunting in Iceland 2018

Goose Hunting in Iceland 2018

Iceland Outfitters offers goose hunting on Melar hunting grounds, which are some of the best goose hunting areas in Europe. The mixture of over 300 ha of barley fields, plenty of grass and a large wetland, makes Melar area extremely attractive for the geese to stay. During the hunting season we have thousands of geese feeding on the grounds.

Hunting on the Melar area is specially designed to keep the quality of the hunting very high. The number of hunters is limited to 4 hunters per day, even though the area would easily handle more. This is done to ensure that the geese will always have a place to feed and rest, as well as to keep the birds in the area. To keep the quality of hunting high throughout the season, there is a limit of 16 geese per hunter per day.


Melar hunting grounds are located in South Wet Iceland, approx. 40 min drive from Reykjavik.

Prime time

Late September - Mid November.

Hunting hours

The hunt starts early in the morning, when it is still dark. Hunters will be at the hunting fields getting ready approx. an hour before sunrise and the hunting itself lasts the first 3-4 hours after daylight.


There are numerous accommodation options close to the hunting grounds, everything from cottages to guesthouses and hotels. We will gladly assist you on finding the suitable accommodation.
