Everyday flight a different landscape, every day a new adventure. Get your hands freezing over the glaciers and volcanoes, chase down the canyons, foot drag the black beaches, fly next to rocky cliffs and plenty waterfalls everywhere. The green on Iceland is a pure definition of green color, I swear there is nothing more green in the world and yet the landscape will instantly change to volcanic badlands with colorful rock formations and twisty rivers.
Imagine discovering new places, landscapes never seen before.
Boarding on day one and if everything goes well, we may have our first flight next day early morning right next to a massive waterfall.
We will drive a minibus with a fully-assembled ready-to-fly paramotors in the trailer during the day to various spots. Fly in the evening, camp overnight and fly from the same spot in the morning. Transfer to the next spot during midday again.
Usually we improvise a lot. Knowing the best locations, we select the next based on weather forecast. Sometimes its raining here but flyable 100km away. This way we get the most of flying possible.
We will mostly do camping on airfields or official camping places. Sometimes we do wildlife camping if legal. Camping right at the take-off place and saves a lot of time early morning and late evening.
You will have to bring your tent, mattress and sleeping bag. We will have room for it in the trailer.
Gas stove, a pot, frying pan, barbecue and basic kitchenware will be provided. Yet do no expect a four seasons comfort. We are here to look for adventure and having a shower every single day is not part of it:-)
Every day we will stop somewhere to get fuel for paramotors, shopping in a supermarket and sure there will be a restaurant for lunch. Camping food for breakfast and dinner mostly. We can do shop and cook food together and the split the costs or you buy food on your own just use our supplies to prepare your own.
I will bring barbecue, stoves, coffee maker, kitchenware …
There might be rainy or windy days. We will improvise. We will do sightseeing, hiking or just share paramotor stories and liquor at a campfire.
Yes, that is the tricky part when traveling for PPG adventures. Taking your paramotor onto plane is always a risky business and you may end up being grounded.
I will drive the minibus and trailer 2 days to Denmark, then get bored to death for 2 days on the ferry and then drive another day cross Iceland to meet you in Reykjavik. Exhausting, boring, time-consuming, terrible… And same way back home, ouch:-( … I will do so you don’t have to.
Here are your options:
I got addicted to adventure flying and right after coming home I knew I have to return again. These trips are no business to me. My primary goal is to have personal fun and if you guys cover my costs, I am happy with that.
Iceland is incredibly expensive yet its absolutely worth it. The main costs are just getting there and despite the incredibly high ferry prices and a horrible 5-day travel to Iceland I have chosen to drive a van and trailer.
We will hook you up with one of our SCOUT machines for whole trip. Maybe you want to try a SCOUT or you dont want to scuff your own paramotor. Only you have to worry about is the huge amount of likes you are going to have after the adventure with us! See above about services provided.
Treat yourself with a brand new SCOUT and have it delivered for your AMAZING ICELAND adventure, this is the right time! We will make you a brand new, fresh and crispy SCOUT and it will be delivered for you on your adventure. Free transport to and from Iceland, delivered to your home afterwards.
Adventure trip with new SCOUT:
Ship your paramotor to us before and we will transport to and from Iceland for free. We can help to arrange shipping at probably lower costs as we have good discounts with parcel services.
Not a SCOUT pilot? No problem! The trips are not exclusive for SCOUT pilots.
Yet the seats are limited and we kind of feel that they will be booked quickly. SCOUT pilots will be given priority boarding as a reward for their trust and passion. Thank you guys.
Priority boarding until 15/May/2018. Reservations open for:
Starting of 16/05/2018, reservations are open to everyone.
