Fun and safe sport for the whole family .
Archery is practiced like a bowling. Anyone can do it, walk in of the street and engage in archery, at any time , between 12-22 every working day or 10-22 saturdays and sundays. It's not just for the pro's archery is fun.
You can also make an appointment by phone 571-9333
All ages are welcome, 14 years and younger only accompanied by an adult , the youngest person regularly engaged in archery now is 4 year old, and the oldest is a man in his nineties : D
All you need to bring is yourself, a good mood and maybe your friends if you want to compete or laugh with someone.
All the equipment is on site. You get a bow, arrows, armguard and targets all that is needed .
Along with an instructor that introduces you to the foundations of how to shoot a bow (archery) and assists you when you need help .
Note the consumption of alcohol and use of firearms together is prohibited by law in Iceland.
Bow sizes are of all different shapes and sizes so that everyone should be able to find the appropriate size .
Armless, legless, skills less, there is a bow for everyone and we can teach them to shoot it.
The most important thing in archery is shooting position and the more you practice , the greater success is achieved.
People are often surprised by how well they do in this sport after just a couple of hours.
Up to 55 people can shoot at the same time in the Reykjavík hall.
We are often asked what is a good beginner? They are all good beginner, the difference is whether people have understood the basics that are needed or not. Most important is that the string is touching the chin and index finger runs along the jawbone .
If you are hitting about 80-90 % of the arrows in the yellow and inner red ring on 10 meters with standard house target face you're good ( in other words, 90 % of the arrows in the 8-9-10 ). That would be good for your first time.
