When the weather is right the conditions in Vågå is fantastic and we can make 100+km tasks in the mountainous terrain, crossing several valleys and plateaus. We 
have launches on every wind direction within a one hour drive. Landings are usually on the valley floor at almost sea level and one big field is normally within reach.
