Aigles du Léman
Ski touring or hiking falconry course: On snowshoes or skis for the more seasoned, this is a unique opportunity to practice the art of falconry in an exceptional environment! For the Walking Workshops, a 45 min snowshoe hike on the wild plateau of Nyon with a bird on your arm! It is an unforgettable experience as some birds like the Great Horned Owl of the Himalayas can reach a wingspan of up to 2 metres! Afterwards, hikers will be able to admire the majestic birds of prey with a flight demonstration in the mountains.
For courses on skis: Skiing exercises with Harris’ buzzards and downhill skiing with an eagle.
Mini falconers: An educational outing with the eagles! For 45 minutes children will be able to get up close and personal with these exceptional birds that they usually only meet in storybooks: the White Owl, the Great Horned Owl, Eagles, Buzzards, Vultures… The falconer will pass on his knowledge and all the secrets of the birds of prey to the children in the form of games… Then they can watch with awe at the splendour of the birds during a flight demonstration overhead!
