The team

A day doesn’t go by for the team at True Adventure Paragliding without excitement and new challenges. They like to make the most of every moment and if you join them on a tandem flight you will be infected by their eagerness to live every moment to the full and enjoy the freedom of the skies. They take your personal safety very seriously but never at the expense of making sure you have extreme amounts of fun when you are gliding with them over Iceland. Both Sammi and Gisli are APPI Certified Paragliding Pro Tandem Pilots.

He is a tandem instructor pilot who also takes you through some pretty awesome acrobatic maneuvers that will seem effortless due to his poise and expertise. He’s half-man/half-bird and follows the flight of the Arctic tern (Sterna) to the south hemisphere every year. You can spot him in the sky over Cape Town during the winter months enjoying his favourite activities all at once. Flying, food and travel.
