Falconry Experience

Duration 90 mins €100 for 1 person €50 per person extra

Your Falconry Experience will include a Simulated Hunt, a Hawk Walk and an Owl Encounter.

We will demonstrate the Ancient Art of Falconry. Watch our Hawks demonstrate their aerial hunting skills by snatching food out of the air and witness a simulated rabbit hunt where our Hawk will chase and catch the dummy bunny and the Falconer will demonstrate the transfer from the dummy bunny.

Your Hawk Walk will include a brief introduction into the Art of Falconry and interesting facts about the Harris Hawk you will fly. You will first be taught how to recall the Hawk from the trees while working on some amazing photos and videos. You will then set off for your Hawk Walk with a Falconer where you will take over the flying of the Hawk, calling the Hawk to your gloved fist several times.

On return we will finish with a brief Owl Encounter. Fantastic photo and video opportunities throughout the experience.
