Suddenly, they discover on the earth and in the sky exceptional landscapes between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes, from an altitude of 5,900 meters. These navigators of sand, salt and air test the four surprising machines - the flying bicycle, the speed-board and the power-kite - under exceptional conditions, exploring unending vistas of mineral, animal and human beauty in amazing colours.
