Parahawking

Available March to October
Tandem Parahawking Experience

Parahawking is flying a paraglider alongside a trained bird of prey, which is a new one-of-a-kind and very special experience availible in the UK. We combine the ancient art of falconry with the modern adventure sport of Paragliding. We witness our raptors flying above, under, alongside us and landing on your glove, allowing us the privilege of a close up, unique and interactive aerial adventure.

"Are you ready to touch the clouds"

Our birds will soar the ridge lift on a hillside, which is where wind is forced upwards when it comes into contact with a hill. Our birds will even guide us to thermals, which are rising columns of warm air that are created by the sun heating the ground, birds use these to gain height and travel long distances using very little energy; which helps them hunt for an easy meal. Paraglider pilots also use thermals when they are flying and will often use wild birds, raptors, cloud formations and various other visual triggers to guide them to thermals.

We fly our hawks alongside us whilst we paraglide as a great fitness tool during the raptors moulting season. To parahawk alongside a free flying hawk whilst soaring at over 500ft above the beautiful Shropshire or Welsh hills, their wingtip inches from you then landing effortlessly on your glove is one of the most awe inspiring and emotional experiences you will ever encounter.

This experience will soon be available to book as a tandem parahawking flight. Follow us on social media for more updates.
