A world apart... to fly (International School of Falconry)

A world apart... to fly

The International School of Falconry Las Colinas invites you to experience the unique feeling of flying birds of prey in beautiful Mediterranean woodland. You don’t have to be an expert or even an enthusiast. Any who wishes to take part can relish the experience of flying a Harris hawk, a species known for its sociable nature, for the first time, or other birds of prey at the school.

One of our specialised instructors will accompany you, providing the necessary guidelines and support during your walk with the hawk through the forest. You can fly a trained bird on your own or accompanied by friends or family.

You can enjoy very special moments at our school, such as the sensation of carrying a hawk perched on your gauntlet or seeing the bird obey your call and fly straight back to your fist.

Don’t forget to wear suitable outdoor footwear and bring a camera; all other necessary materials for the activity -gauntlets, hawking bags, etc…- will be provided by our staff.

“During my stay in Las Colinas Golf & Country Club I took the opportunity to visit the International School of Falconry. I'm glad I could take the opportunity to do so because it was an awesome feeling that I had never lived. The school director, Ruben Carrasco, explained the ancient art of falconry and could see up close all the birds of the School. The ride was about 60 minutes with an eagle Harris we called with a whistle and came several times responding to our call. Amazing experience. I would love to repeat it.”

"It was an awesome experience, being educated about these birds of prey when we walked with them in the nature of Las Colinas Golf & Country Club. The helpful and patient guide was very knowledgeable and gave us interesting information about the birds and their behavior while we stroke the bird sitting on my wrist, looking me straight in the eyes. If you are with two I would recommend to share a bird. One can take pictures and videos while the other is releasing the bird into the air or feeding it. I highly recommend to anyone to learn the basics of one of the oldest sports in the world. This is definitely something you should do while you are at Las Colinas Golf & Country Club or visit this region."

The family spent Easter at Las Colinas Golf & Country Club, accompanied by some friends. We wanted to rest, play golf and enjoy the Beach Club. We’re fans of Las Colinas, so much so that we’ve been going there every long weekend we can for the last two years. It’s the ideal place to get away from the hectic, stressful pace of life in Madrid. Once we arrived, we found out about the falconry experiences offered at the International School of Falconry. It was simply amazing! I’ve never had any close contact with birds of prey before and the nearest I’ve got was going to see a demonstration with our son when he was little. But the experience Las Colinas offers it totally different. You fly the bird yourself in secluded natural surroundings. It’s like being transported to another world. You can fly the Harris Hawk freely in the sky and seeing how it soars and then dives to land on your arm is a truly unique feeling. The staff at the school is very pleasant and professional. Don’t miss the experience if you go to Las Colinas. If you don’t experience it firsthand you can’t begin to imagine what it feels like. I had the chance to have a real owl on my arm, beating its wings most impressively.

My husband and I decided to get away for a weekend at the beginning of March. We love golf and the course at Las Colinas had been recommended to us. We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment, which was very comfortable, quiet and had spectacular views over the forest. When we checked in, they told us we could book a falconry experience consisting of a walk during which you fly a Harris Hawk. Apparently, it’s the only place in Spain where you can do this. It sounded different to us and we signed up for the experience. We never imagined how much we would like it or the degree to which it would surprise us. The place you go round with the hawk is truly beautiful; a real discovery. The instructors give you a special glove and show you how to carry the bird on your arm. It’s impressive watching it fly and respond when you call, then return to your arm. I also loved meeting all the other birds at the falconry school and, particularly, Margarita, a gorgeous owl. It was a really worthwhile experience. It was a great weekend. The golf course and all the amenities are first rate.
