Crossing Slovakia from South to North

Flying through Low Tatras, beautiful castles and lakes, flying above the clouds and the big monuments as High Tatras are! We top landed on top of the beautiful mountain and make a camp there for night, we make camfire there, slept only in our sleeping bags and next morning flew over with our paramotors. It was great trip!

Are you going to join us in 2018 from 5.9 – 9.9?

Supported cross-country adventure

No return back! we will fly from one spot to another truly exploring the distances on our paramotoros. A pilot guide will navigate the whole group in flight with radio communication supplied to everyone. A support van+trailer will follow with all our camping gear and stuff and the ground-support will get fuel for us for the next flight. Usually one flight in the morning and one in the evening. We will rest during the day or do local sightseeing.  

On our trip we will have one full-bivouac overnight stay. We strap sleeping bags to our paramotors, top-up the fuel tanks and take-off. We will land on some remote wildllife spot, rest around a campfire roast some food for dinner. After quick breakfast we will fly back to meet our support van and refill our fuel tanks for the next cross country flight. 

We did this a few times in Slovakia and Iceland, best sky ever, millions of stars to watch when falling asleep…

From the Hungarian border all the way to the border of Poland
