Blast & Cast

© Bill Vanderford

At the beginning of our hunting season we offer Blast & Cast packages, where guests start early morning shooting or evening shooting and fish for the rest of the day. These packages are available from the 20th August - 31st October. We only hunt for waterfowl so we are therefore hunting for geese and ducks and fishing for salmon, sea trout and trout.

On a typical Blast and Cast day, we hunt in the morning and fish in the afternoon, but sometimes we do it the other way around.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Our guests are picked up in Reykjavik at 13.00, arriving at the lodge in the afternoon. Then enjoy some light refreshments, following that we go out for fishing or an evening goose or duck hunt. After dinner it is time to go to bed.

Day 2: The day begins with an early breakfast, 1-2 hours before daylight if we are planning to hunt for geese in the morning, if not then breakfast is at a normal hour and then spend the rest of the day fishing, pausing at lunchtime for something to eat. If we plan to hunt then we stop fishing and go to the hunting grounds, after hunting we go for dinner. If we are not hunting we keep on fishing until dinner time.

Day 3: Same as Day 2

Day 4: The day begins with an early breakfast, 1-2 hours before daylight, before going to the hunting ground with your guide. After hunting we go for lunch, after lunch you pack and our driver gets you to Reykjavik.
