Iceland is known from its amazing landscapes and tough island weather. It is one of these very special destinations, where most of the paramotor pilots dream about.
In August last summer a group of pilots, mostly from USA spent two weeks on a road trip in Iceland flying in several locations. Seems like they have been very lucky with the weather conditions as all their pictures and videos are looking simply amazing. Among others, tree pilots were flying Ozone wings: Miroslav Svec (Viper 3), Matej Roder (Roadster 2) and Tucker Gott (Viper 4)
Tucker Gott reports:
"Iceland is easily the most beautiful place I have ever flown a paramotor. From the very first flight above glaciers and high mountain peaks, I knew this place was special. We lucked out with near perfect weather and the golden light was amazing the entire week. My favorite flight was a cross country adventure to the Maelifell volcano. It was nearly a two hour flight which began in green and black mountains. As we neared the volcano, the landscape opened up to flat black plains where the bright green volcano rose from the ground. My second favorite flight started in Skogafoss and continued down a cliff face with multiple waterfalls. At the end of the flight, I climbed to the peak of a mountain and dove my 16m Viper 4 down the mountain in perfectly calm air"
