Owls are nocturnal birds that many people never get the chance to see, and are unlike any other. This experience is so special because it allows you to get up close and personal to these impressive creatures. You will have the unique opportunity to handle these beautiful birds and learn their history, hunting techniques and other aspects of their behaviour and you'll get to fly a selection of owls which could vary from the Barn Owl to the Snowy Owl.
On arrival you will have the option of tea or coffee and be given an introductory briefing. You will then meet the owls and be given instruction on how to handle them safely before you fly them across the local countryside, under supervision of your expert tutor. There will be plenty of opportunities for photos so don't forget your camera! The exact types of owl you meet will vary depending on the location you choose.
