White steam, foul-smelling smoke and spluttering lava: this was the setting for the Mammut Peak Project highlight tour on Mount Etna on Sicily (IT). In perfect weather, the fearless speed-flyers Jody Barratin and Felice Boccanegra climbed the 3,323 meter, still active, volcano and enjoyed a breathtaking view over the Mediterranean. The Italians then unpacked their paragliders and got ready for a thrilling descent. As well as skis attached to their feet, speed-flyers also carry a paraglider to allow them to make their way back down the mountain using a combination of skiing and flying.
The descent was successful and all team members arrived safely back at the foot of the volcano. They captured some amazing photos and a fascinating video along the way.
