The fifth annual Svanstein Paramotor meet takes place in the Tornedalen valley, above the arctic circle in northern Sweden.
The North Face Mountain festival is a celebration of all kinds of mountain sports, including paragliding.
The festival invites participants to camp at the foot of the Eiger with like-minded mountain-sports lovers, and try their hand at new sports plus celebrate the ones they already love. There are athlete talks and live music too.
Climb walls, hike and run breathtaking alpine trails as well as learning new skills from adventure photography to cooking up a wilderness feast, all whilst enjoying a newfound sense of belonging.
The event is for over-18s only. Tickets cost €249 and include many of the activities, plus breakfasts and dinners. They can be bought from The North Face Mountain Festival website.
The flying site is situated in the north of Portugal with high mountains and open valleys, surrounded by vast plains to several directions. The place is perfect and secure for cross-country flights. “Good for 100km triangles”, organisers say!
