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

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!
