☝ Winner of the best "Insider Access" experience in Prague in 2019 ☝

You will first get familiar with all our birds, and the way our breeding station operates to save various endangered species. Then, you will participate in feeding the birds of prey, including our bald eagle Helen, vulture Omar, pair of Harris hawks and a few others. They will fly just above your heads, and they will land (should you dare to try it!) on your arm protected by a special glove. We will finish off by showcasing the training of the fastest bird of prey on the planet, our falcon Gulliver. This is a hands-on experience, quite literally!
Other things to note
This is and all-weather event. Even though this is mainly outdoor activity, there is a garden house providing cover from an incidental rain from which you can still fully participate in the whole event. We also have umbrellas and blankets for everybody.

We are a family of animal lovers specialized in falconry, ecology, breeding & animal rescue. Petr and Jana, apart from being married for almost four decades, run a sanctuary for birds and small mammals called Penthea, and Eliska, being (quite literally) Penthea's daughter, helps them connect with nature lovers from all around the globe.

As a rescue and breeding center, we look after some 120 animals: A couple dozen owls, hawks, eagles, vultures, falcons, parrots, a few small mammals, and even three fluffy dogs. Petr has been mastering the art of falconry for more than 40 years. As such, he belongs to the most renowned falconers in a country with an old falconry tradition, which has, as a matter of fact, been recognized as a living human heritage by UNESCO.

Om organisasjonen: Penthea



Penthea is an officially incorporated non-profit organization based in Prague, Czech Republic. The family-run institution has been around for more than 2 decades providing shelter for handicapped animals, lecturing on topics of ornithology and ecology, training birds of prey born in captivity for survival in nature, and more.

Dette er en ideell opplevelse der 100 % av det du betaler for denne opplevelsen går til Penthea.

Her skal du være

We will meet at the meeting point in the city center. We will then drive for about 20 minutes to a village called Cholupice, where our rescue and breeding station is located. After the 2-hour long program is finished, we will drive you safely back to the original meeting point.

We booked a private group for eight people. Peter was on time to pick us up at the location he gave us. Everyone was very friendly and the birds were very cute and/or cool. Everyone in our group got to fly three different birds which greatly exceeded our expectations. We also got to see a baby owl which was absolutely adorable.

This is such a great experience. Peter, the owner, is so friendly, knowledgeable, and interesting. The birds are amazing! It’s such a fun and unique experience that you get to actually help feed them (they fly to you!). Highly recommend! You will not be disappointed.

It was a nice change of pace from the busy streets of Prague. We got picked up by the hosts and drove from Prague to the sanctuary. During the drive over there the host told some historical facts about areas and buildings along the way. We had expected to be able to participate with the smaller birds, so it was amazing to actually join in on the bigger Eagle and Vulture too. It was amazing and you can have some great memories, pictures and videos this way. Besides the general information about birds and falconry you also get some more personal info about certain birds with their names, behaviour and personality. Very cool. Plus we got a souvenir gifted as wel. If you have the chance to go, do it.

Eliska, Jan and Jane and their staff are amazing hosts and it is great to see how much they take care of the animals entrusted to them. We appreciated the educational value of this experience and enjoyed the entire experience. Don't miss it!

Whether you're an animal lover or just curious, I'd expect people to really enjoy this experience. Everyone was really knowledgeable and helpful, and the birds appear to be very well taken care of. Highly recommend.
