ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Private Falconry Experience North Wales

Spend 90 minutes learning falconry, the ancient sport of kings! This private lesson allows you to get up close with these majestic birds of prey and try your hand at flying the birds yourself.

Get up close and personal with these incredible creatures during this unforgettable one-to-one falconry experience in North Wales. You will spend 90 minutes with an expert falconer and the beautiful birds of prey, giving you a real insight into their habitat and hunting habits.

At the beginning of the experience you will meet your hawk, and your falconer guide will tell you a bit about him. You will be shown how to handle him (using a special leather glove), then it is time to take him out flying! While you are out on your hawk walk, your guide will tell you plenty about the history of falconry, and how it developed into the near art-form it is today. As you stroll through the beautiful Welsh countryside, your hawk will follow along, soaring and swooping and demonstrating his incredible agility - and, of course, coming to land on your gloved hand. You'll now also get to meet and handle the centre's beautiful Barn Owl!

The perfect bird of prey encounter for lovers of the outdoors and a passion for beautiful wildlife.

FALCONRY EXPERIENCE

I would have no issue if this experience cost double of what I actually paid. Rich the Falconer made this a very special experience in a very special place. The Harris Hawks were on great form landing on the gauntlet when called, as well as demonstrating their range of flight and hunting skills. After the Hawks, the majestic Eagle Owl was a brilliant finish to the bird experience. Afterwards, we were treated to refreshing bucks fizz, coffee and bara brith cake. I cannot praise Rich the Falconer enough, his knowledge, teaching and love of the birds shone through. Do not hesitate to go on this experience, we are telling all our friends and family about it. We are definitely going back with our children. The 1 to 1 tuition is so much better than a group one.
