The Ultimate Bird of Prey Adventure
The Avian Overnighter is full of avian action including an overnight stay at the Skywings Falconry Farmhouse.
Upon your afthernoon arrival and after a quick introduction to our birds, we'll head up to the paragliding launch site for your Parahawking Tandem Experience. After a short briefing on safety and how to feed the birds in the air, we take to the skies with our trained birds. They will soar with us and lead us to the best thermals then return to land on your arm for a small piece of food, mid flight! This experience provides a unique perpective of birds of prey in their own natural environment, a once in a lifetime experience and only possible in Spain. On landing at the Skywings Falconry grounds, the birds will return to their aviaries and you can enjoy a relaxing evening at the traditional Andalucian Farmhouse. An evening meal can be provided or we can recommend a local restaurant if you prefer to eat out.
The following morning you'll take part in our Bird of Prey Experience, this is a 2-3 hour session where you will learn more about the special handling and training techniques. You'll also get to fly and excercise the birds in the grounds and great capture some great photos.

Frequently Asked Questions
Our birds need to be rewarded for guiding us into the thermals. During the flight the passenger will place small morsels of meat onto his gloved hand, the birds will come and gently land on the hand to take the food, and then gracefully fly away to find the next thermal. A perfect symbiotic relationship.
Vultures are important in our society, they play a vital role in our ecosystem by cleaning up all of the dead animals that would otherwise be left to rot. Millions of tonnes of animal carcasses are disposed of each year across Asia, which if not cleaned up, would pose a real risk to human health. Asia's vultures are declining faster than the Dodo and could be extinct in the next 5-10 years, unfortunately not enough people know about the problem. Vultures are considered to be quite unsavory creatures because of this, these prehistoric looking birds are difficult to empathize with. We want to change that!
Parahawking provides a unique opportunity to see vultures in a different light, to understand about the importance of them in our society and to learn about their behavior in the wild. Parahawking is our mission to raise more public awareness to the plight of Asia's vultures and in doing so halt the decline and prevent their extinction.
We support vital Vulture conservation projects, proceeds from Parahawking go to Vulture conservations projects.
