COLORFUL FLIGHT

...and the

A wonderful free-flight bird show for the whole family!

Combining the blue of Mediterranean sea and the green of the Alberes, located 5 minutes from the Argeles beach, Valmy Eagles Park is and has been an unforgettable since 1996. The world of birds and their fragile environment won’t leave you untouched

 

Our birds’ free flight on a background music will fill you with emotions and awe. Our eagles, kites, buzzards, vultures, owls, white storks, parrots, ravens, as well as our other residents will amaze you, touching you with their wings as they fly by you… More than hundreds individuals are to be met and encountered.

 

During our long shows, our falconers will offer rewarding and entertaining commentary (in French) and will share with you the customs and habits of our residents. Come with the whole family to meet these wonderful and mysterious creatures!

 

For the bravest and daring, we recommend our falconry training morning sessions!

Don’t forget your camera! You may be lucky and get to carry a bird of prey during a show!
