Whilst armchair travel is currently the only way for us to experience some of the world’s most beautiful corners right now, we’re already thinking ahead to 2021 and planning our next adventure! After all, we’ll need a change of scene after this year.
If you are looking for inspiration, or have a bucket list you are ticking off, GPM can help! To get you started here are some of our most popular experiences.
1. Become a Fighter jet pilot
Your experience will begin at a former communist air base in the Czech Republic, where you’ll start with a 30-minute safety briefing. Safety is paramount, so your session will progress to a simulation aircraft for another 30 minutes to get you familiar with the controls. It’s then time to buckle up in an actual I-29 fighter jet for the ride of your life. No thrill will be spared as you travel at speeds of more than 650km/hour, doing rolls, loops, steep climbs and fly pasts, experiencing the otherworldly feeling of zero gravity.
2. Private plane to Champagne
Treat staff, friends or family to a luxurious day trip on a private plane to the home of Champagne, in Reims. From the airport you’ll be transferred to the Vranken Pommery Champagne House for a tour of their cellars, along with a tasting session. This will be followed by lunch at the prestigious Chateau Les Crayeres, à Relais Chateaux Hotel.
3. Lunch with Mr Lamborghini
Visit the Lamborghini factory in Sant’Agata and its private collection for a very special rendezvous. Mr Lamborghini doesn’t grant lunch to just anyone. Fabio Lamborghini, the nephew of the company’s founder, will take you out to his favourite local restaurant and regale you with stories from the past and present of this most exotic and Italian of supercar builders.
4. Drive an F1 car
Head to Magny-Cours, France – previous home of the French Grand Prix. You’ll get the chance to be an F1 driver for the day, with a team of mechanics and engineers, who will set up the Formula One car for you to test it to the limit. You will have at your disposal the Prost and Benetton B198 cars. The experience includes an initiation and seat time with a Formula Renault single seater, comprehensive instruction and a progressive-based approach to learn the track. Once fully prepared you’ll be handed the F1 car to take on the track! Nothing will prepare you for the power and G-Force of this car, an experience you’ll savour for the rest of your life.
5. Iceland Adventure
The ultimate once in a lifetime adventure, see everything Iceland has to offer! You’ll start your adventure by heading out of the capital of Reykjavik in giant 4×4’s. These 4×4’s have driven to the north pole and back so you’re sure to be able to tackle the most extreme of terrain, so be ready for an adrenaline fuelled ride! Visit the Geysers of Iceland, drive across Iceland largest glaciers and race
across stunning landscapes on snowmobiles. Start day 2 by heading up to the famous Eyjafjallajökull Volcano, led by your experienced guide as you head through glacier rivers, black volcanic deserts, volcanos and ice caves. Your final day will see you head to see a wonder of the world, the Blue Lagoon. The naturally heated thermal waters are the perfect place to relax and unwind after your adventure!
