Overview

Ever wanted to learn more about glorious birds of prey? This introduction to hawking and falconry is the perfect opportunity. Your experience starts with a tour of the aviaries, where you'll get close to different species, including a European eagle owl. Experience the speed of the hawk, the cheek of the vulture and the silence of the owl. Receive some tuition from an expert handler and handle some birds to get familiarized. Next it's time to be a falconer and fly some birds, watching them soar and dive through the air and eventually coming into land on your glove. Finish off the experience by taking a walk with the hawks. Refreshments are included.
