This session is the ultimate introduction to the bird of prey world. After a guided tour of the centre’s extensive collection, staff will brief guests on safe practice whilst working with the birds before introducing some of the flying team. This hands-on session invites guests to meet, handle and fly a great range of raptors from owls to hawks, from vultures to eagles. Watch an owl swoop through its natural, woodland habitat; enjoy a stroll in open countryside accompanied by a hawk and take in the spectacle of an eagle or vulture soaring before diving back down to earth and onto the gloved arm. Each session becomes unique as Icarus staff will often tailor the session to suit attendants and weather conditions.
Full day experiences run from 10am to 4pm inclusive of lunchbreak.
Bring a packed lunch to enjoy in our cozy lodge or outside on one of our top notch picnic benches. Alternatively pre order food at a local pub on arrival!
