Invest in your soul – go hunting

Lax-á was established in 1987 and has been one of Iceland’s leaders in hunting and fishing outfitters ever since. It was one of the first companies in Iceland to organize wing shooting and reindeer hunting. The company has had a great success in reindeer hunting where previous clients have had a 100% success and a good trophy. They have all returned home delighted with the experience. Lax-a has been under the same management for nearly 30 years and still retains the same core values as in the beginning; to provide quality, both in terms of hunting as well as other services. 

Goose hunting has become a very popular sport in Iceland. There are plenty of geese on the island as four species fly from mainland Europe two of them to lay their eggs in Iceland, the other two using Iceland as a stopover on their way even further north..

The resident geese are the greylag goose and the pink footed goose, the stop overs are the barnacle goose and the white fronted goose. Lax-á offers excellent geese shooting trips to the best hunting areas in the country.

Lax-á is proud to introduce the fine sport of hunting and is looking forward to welcoming you to Iceland in the near future. We´re sure you will enjoy the unusual and exciting experience.


One of the most important components of any hunting trip is of course, the guide. They are both your advisers and companions for the whole week.
