This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with these magnificent and powerful birds. Take a stroll through wonderful woodlands and lakeland countryside as the hawks follow, flying tree to tree and tree to glove. It is amazing to see these beautiful birds fly with such precision through the trees, fly in and land gently onto your gloved hand. There are plenty of photographic opportunities so don't forget your camera!
Within minutes of arriving you will have a hawk on your glove and be setting off with your falconer to fly the magnificent bird of prey in spectacular countryside. Most of the experience is spent with you flying the hawk, during which time your falconer will explain about the hawk's exceptional eyesight, its speed and agility, how it is trained, and how it hunts.
This experience is available selected days Tuesday to Sunday, throughout the year, except Christmas.
This experience will last approximately 1 hour.
There will be up to 11 other people in your group.
You're welcome to bring family and friends, however there is a charge for this, please check on booking.
The minimum age is 6 years old. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
You need to be able to walk for an hour across countryside and up hills.
There are no qualifications required.

I picked this activity from a birthday voucher. I found it very interesting & informative. It was good to be so close to the harris hawk. The only down side was I was in a group of 9 so I only got to hold the bird twice in the 1 hour experience

We travelled a round trip of 200 miles. Great, knowledgable hawk girl. Poor, tired facilities and NOT a woodland walk as advertised.

Leader was well informed but the group was very large and those viewing almost got as much opportunity to "handle" the bird as those with the gloves.It hardly merited the description of a walk.
