Full description

Take part in afascinating experience at the foot of the Sibillini Mountainsand discover an ancient activity such as falconry, declared aUNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Falconry is the art oftraining birds of prey. An experienced falconer will teach you how to call a falcon to the fist. You can walk with him in the middle of the forest and watch him fly free through the trees.

If you love animals and are curious about birds of prey, this is an opportunity not to be missed!

What we will do

The activity takes place in Norcia, in the province of Perugia. On arrival, we will be welcomed by the falconer and together with him we will visit the birds of prey centre, admiring specimens of diurnal and nocturnal species. We will discover all the characteristics and differences between these fascinating birds.

The guide will tell us about the history of falconry, the techniques used, the care and feeding of birds of prey. We will then move to the outdoor area and learn the fist call technique. We will then take a walk in the company of the falcon, calling it back and letting it fly free in the forest environment.

The activity will last about two hours in total.
