Full description

Come and discover the extraordinary world of birds of prey in the Lari hills in the midst of greenery.

Near Casciana Terme Lari, you will have the opportunity to get to know more than 50 birds of prey and interact with some of them under the supervision of an expert falconer.

During the two and a half hours of theory you will learn interesting notions about birds of prey, while during the one and a half hours of practice you will be able to watch a flight demonstration and learn how to call some species to the fist. We are waiting for you!

What we will do

We will meet at the time selected during the booking process in Casciana Terme Lari (PI). Here the falconer will welcome us, introducing us to his park of several hectares where we will feel as if we are entering an enchanted world.

The facility, immersed in the green hills of Lari, is one of the largest of its kind in Italy and is home to no less than 55 different specimens with 35 different species of birds of prey: griffons, eagles, barn owls, owls and many others. After a briefing to learn the rules to be observed inside the facility, we will be ready to start our guided tour to get to know the birds of prey up close.

The falconer will enchant us with a technical-scientific explanation of each species, with hints of ethology and the history of falconry, to get to know all their secrets and unique characteristics. We will learn how to recognise birds of prey in this theoretical phase lasting about hours, learning what a bird of prey is, its morphology and physiology, and its importance in nature.

At this point we will be ready to move on to the practical part where we will learn how to use typical falconry equipment and watch a flight demonstration by the falconer. It will then be our turn to get involved: we will be able to interact with different birds of prey, such as buzzards, tawny owls or barn owls, and try our hand at flying the bird of prey and calling it to our fist. The falconer will assist us at all times to ensure maximum safety.

The activity will last a total of 4 hours, including 2½ hours of theory and 1½ hours of practice.
