My name is Harpa and I am a hunter and an angler from Iceland.   I run my own outfitting company in Iceland where I plan fishing and hunting tours for guests from all around the world, so it is safe to say that my life is dedicated to fishing and hunting.  

I started hunting about 10 years ago, and I really was not sure it would be something I would fall for.  But after having the first animal in my scope, there was no doubt and I knew hunting was something I wanted to do.  I feel a lot more connected and respectful towards nature after taking up hunting and I really enjoy planning and preparing for my next trip.  I just returned from Portugal where I shot my first wild boar. There are not many animals to hunt in Iceland, so here I do goose and duck hunting and reindeer hunting when I am lucky enough to get a tag for a trophy.  I did not have any female hunting friends, so a few years ago, I started a women hunting club, called T&T international and we travel together for hunting and fishing. We have been few times to hunt moose in Estonia and to Scotland as well.  I have a husband and 3 children, 9, 12 and 16 years old and they all take part in our outdoor life.

I hope you will choose me to participate in Extreme Huntress

It would be an adventure of a lifetime.

Kindest regards from Iceland
