Archery in Andalucia, Spain

Long bow archery up in the sierras!  A superb archery session with all tuition,Longbow archery as well as junior bows and mini cross bows for children, pitting our skills against fixed and moving targets.

Traditional long bow archery session

A brilliant opportunity to try traditional long bows on various fixed - and moving - targets.  Our archery session is a great introduction to this ancient traditional sport, using traditional long bows, in a variety of sizes from children's bows to 1.50m & 1.70m bows for adults.  For smaller children we have small de-powered plastic framed cross bows which use a small plastic safety bolt.  These are very light to hold and operate, so even younger members of the family can have a go in complete safety.

After a full safety briefing ad instruction in how to handle your bow, you will walk a track shooting at a range of different stationary targets. These range from 125 x 125 to 60 x 60 in size.  You also get to try your hand at a couple of moving targets, which take the form of moving cylinders.  The session takes approx 2 hrs to complete.  A simple points system is used, with the individual or team scoring most being the winner!
