Iceland Breathtaking Adventure

BE READY FOR 2021! This is the last ICELAND adventure for a longer period of time!

Highlights

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.

We will pick you up at the Airport on the first day at 12:00. If you arrive earlier, enjoy the site and let us know which hotel you stay at. If possible we will pick you up. Should your hotel be difficult to reach with the van and trailer, we will agree on a different pick-up spot.

The plan is to fly the first flight in the evening.

Your departure home:

We will drop you off at the airport on the last day at 12:00. So book your flight home to leave on the last day afternoon.

BREATHTAKING INCELAND 1,2 and 3

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.

Staying overnight

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:-)

Food

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 … 

What if the weather is not flyable?

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.

OFFROAD PARAMOTOR ADVENTURE

  • instead of driving one van and trailer we will have a convoy of 4 off-road SUVs., 2 pilots +2 paramotors per car.
  • go deep into the highlands
  • explore places no one has ever flown before.
  • No need to fly there, we will take-off right there.
  • bivouac in Iceland
  • more fun, maximum adventure

First-time to Iceland?

If this would be your first SCOUT paramotor trip to Iceland, you better choose the standard trip. We would take you to the best spots we already know, picking the cherries based on our 4 years of experience flying in Iceland. Thorsmork is an out-worldly plcae, so is  Snaefellsnes , Maelifell , Landmannalaugar or the Skafta river…
 
On the offload experience we will intentionally skip those proven best places. We want to see what’s behind, what’s further. Sure we hope to discover to new best places and redefine our map of Iceland. This trip is meant for pilots, who have already been to Iceland with us.

Warning

  • less comfort: we will need to load and unload the paramotors, disassembling the paramotors every time,
  • less fresh air: yes, the cars may smell of fuel
  • less showers: we will drive deep into the highlands with limited shower options. There are designated legal camping areas but some of them without facilities.
  • less flexible: on our trips we chase the weather. Usually we drive to another location every day and choose the spots with best weather forecast. On this offroad trip, however, our ability to escape the rain might be somewhat limited if we are in the middle of the country on slow in the roads with lots of water crossings
  • higher risk involved: we will fly to pretty remote areas, most likely no signal and very very few roads. Your guide will be equipped with satellite communicator to call for help but extraction may take longer.

What is Paramotor Road Trip?

To maximize our paramotor experience we will drive wherever the weather is the best to fly. We fly in the evening, then the same spot at sunrise again but other direction. During the day we will drive the van and trailer to the next spot.

We have many spots pre-selected. We will choose the next one based on actual weather. To maximize paramotor experience means we need to sacrifice our comfort a little:

  • we cannot book accommodation in advance as we decide where to stay based on the actual short-term forecast. Good news is it will be off season so we have good chances to improvise.
  • we drive a lot during the days in our Mercedes Viano 8-seater van. Yes, you would wish to have a but more rest.
  • the morning flights are pretty cold… the high mountain flights are very cold… the high mountain morning flights are f*

What to bring with you?

  • glider,
  • your reserve (rental machines are equipped with reserve)
  • helmet (ideally with radio),
  • your flying instruments
  • warm clothes for flying, gloves
  • power bank
  • camera is a must
  • camping gear, if the adventure require it(consutlt before adventure)

How to get your paramotor there?

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.

Here are your options:

    • rent one of our SCOUT paramotors. This is a great opportunity to properly and throughly test the SCOUT. After first flight you will fall in love with it for sure. After flying 15-30 hours on it during the adventure trip you will not want any other machine any more. Should you decide to order a new scout afterwards, you will have half of the rental costs off your purchasing price.
    • place an order for a brand new SCOUT and have it delivered the destination. Fly the best adventure of your life on your new dream machine! After the trip, we will take it Slovakia, clean it, pack it and ship to your home.
    • ship your paramotor to SCOUT headquarters and we take it for you.  We may arrange the pick up at lower cost, we have good deals with FedEx and other shipping companies as we ship a lot.  You are responsible for packing it properly. We will load your paramotor into the trailer and drive it to the to Iceland. You enjoy a comfortable flight to the destination with light luggage only. After the trip, we will take it to Slovakia, pack and ship to your home again. You pay the parcel service only. Transport in the trailer from SCOUT HQ to destination and back is free of charge.

Service provided

  • pickup in destination of arrival (always have to be consulted before)
  • transport of your gear from SCOUT HQ, Slovakia to destination if applicable
  • transport in 8 seater minibus (Mercedes Viano) during the trip
  • special paramotor trailer for 8 assembled paramotors + camping gear
  • charging of your cameras and phone, BBQ, stove and kitchenware for you to use
  • local knowledge
  • guidance 24/7
  • pre-flight and post-flight briefings
  • radio coms for the whole group to stay safe and have the most fun
  • friendly smile
  • cool photos and videos, best memories…

Service does not include:

  • fuel and oil for paramotors. We do not want to charge you for fuel in advance as we may be grounded due to weather for a day or two. Fuel will be charged on place based on how much we burn. Assume around 100 eur for the trip but trust me, this is the best spent money!
  • accommodation / camping fees. Again, we will improvise a lot in selecting the best spots to fly. Accommodation is usually around 60 eur per person per night.
  • food: restaurants on the way combined with grocery shopping for snacks
  • your plane ticket to and from adventure destination

Anyone can join us!

Our trips are NOT exclusive for SCOUT pilots only! Pilots with other machines are very welcome to join us. We have always had great times and brands and colors do not matter.

However, quite often we have more pilots signed up for a trip than seats available. In this case SCOUT pilots will have priority boarding as our reward you for their loyalty.

Following reservations will be confirmed immediately:

  • SCOUT owners who want to participate with their own paramotor
  • any pilot who orders a trip with rental of a SCOUT (4 paramotors available)
  • any pilot who orders the trip with a brand new SCOUT paramotor (with relevant discount)

If you want to participate with your own non-SCOUT paramotor, we encourage you to sign up as soon as possible, too. Although we will not be able to confirm your seat before the priority boarding deadline, after this date seats will be confirmed on a first-come-first-served basis. So do not hesitate!
