A nice little Experience in Skipton, North Yorkshire.
Head out to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales for an incredible eagle handling experience for two. Start off with a cup of tea and a bacon roll at the hotel before commencing on a guided tour of the barn, which houses all the resident eagles. Afterwards, receive one-to-one tuition on bird handling from an experienced falconer and learn how these majestic creatures are trained. After a lunch break, put theory into practice by flying three species of eagle to the glove. There is no better way to see these amazing birds of prey up close and witness their artful flight. A light (sandwich) lunch at the hotel is included.
At least two weekend dates per month, throughout the year.
If the weather is bad your experience will still go ahead under cover.
Your experience lasts around 6 and a half hours. Please arrive a few minutes early to ensure a prompt start.
The experience is held on a personal basis with just the two of you and your instructor.
This experience is not suitable for spectators.
Dress for the outdoors and wear wellies or walking boots. Bring a change of clothes if the weather is very bad. If you have a camera or a pair of binoculars, bring them along.
Minimum age is 18. You need to be reasonably fit as the day involves a fair amount of walking. Wheelchair users are welcome. Both novices and those with some experience of birds of prey are welcome, as the day is designed around your level of experience.
Please note that dogs are not permitted on-site.
