Our giant aviaries

Terre des Aigles


An immersion like in « Jurassic park » !

This aviary of 18,000 m², unique in the world, will allow you to discover 60 birds of 15 different raptor species! They live in a real biotope with its ponds, riprap, rocks, hedges, trees and there are also sheep, geese, turkey and ducks living freely with the bird of prey.

This environment has been designed for the birds’ well-being and reproduction. This bet is filled with 7 species that breed from December to August. To ensure the success of this reproduction and the tranquillity of our animals, the visit is possible in groups of 20 people at certain times of the day with one of our falconer-animators (ask at reception).

You will then be able to enter the aviary and be in direct contact with the birds but also benefit from the information provided by our falconer-animator. This unique experience in France will bring you as close as possible to the great vultures and eagles. 500 m of path will allow you to discover the nesting sites, feeding platforms and swimming ponds.

Tariff : 2 € per person – per group of 20 people maximum – only on reservation







Photographers’ paradise !

All around the aviary, three observatories point have been set up to offer an ideal view of the aviary. Hidden in the observation huts, you can admire and photograph the animals, their behaviour and their flights in complete tranquillity.

An educational area has been set up at the entrance to one of the observatory, 150 m² of exhibition space on birds of prey, their lifestyles, their breeding activities, etc. Thanks to the species panel presenting raptor species, the game is to find and identify the species present in the aviary, a moment of patience and observation to be done with family or friends.





Warning : The path of the aviary «Terre des Aigles» is a bit rocky, so it is pretty much harsh with wheelchairs. Indeed, we try to make a place as natural as possible for the birds. However, you can easily go through the two others biotopics aviaries «La Lagune» and «Le Clos des 4 tours».

Le Clos des 4 tours

Meet the medium-sized species

In this largely wooded space, cohabit twenty raptors of eight species. They are the représentatives of the so-called medium-sized raptors with a less than 1.5 m wingspan.

Among them is the rare yellow-headed vulture and Aplomado falcon.

For those whom the land of eagles and its giants frighten a little, this is an opportunity for a experience of direct contact with magnificient raptors…a little less impressive !


La Lagune

An area dedicated to the Mediterranean fauna.

This 5000 m² aviary presents the most spectacular species of Mediterranean fauna: ospreys, Egyptian vultures, Short-toed snake eagle, Lanner falcon…

With two fishing pond and its beautiful vegetation, this aviary offers a real showcase for these species but also for visitors since it is possible to have lunch inside the aviary and thus to have a privileged visual contact without any net. A snack bar, with a huge terrace, is installed in the aviary next to one of the fishing pools and allows you to eat while observing the birds of the aviary.

The giants of Hokkaido

There is an island in the north of Japan where the two largest species of eagles meet for the winter.

Braving cold, snow and hunger, the largest eagle, Steller’s Eagle with its 9 kg, and the largest eagle, the

White-tailed sea eagle with its 2.5 m wingspan, offer photographers from all over the world the most improbable and spectacular duo ever !

For the first time, Les Aigles du Léman, brings together its two species as on the island of Hokkaido, in the same space, a huge aviary of 1800 m2. A unique opportunity to see these two giants together !
