Fuerteventura | a solo travel film - DJI Mavic 2 pro

Paride Musci

Of the seven in Spain's Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is the second largest. There are a few stories about how the island got its name, from a reference to the likelihood of escaping the dangerous ocean turbulence to the good luck gained from being on the island. Drone pilot Paride Musci found his own good fortune while spending a solo week armed with a DJI Mavic Pro 2, a Go Pro Hero 5, and a good eye for amazing shots; the result is this stunning travel video of the island.

Lanzerote is part of the Canary Islands, a Spanish administered archipelago that lies off the coast of North Africa near Morrocco.  It is one of the more remote islands, situated to the northeast of better known Fuerteventura.  In this stunning video, contributor Pedrolftavares flies his DJI Phantom drone over the island, the closest of the Canaries to the African coast, giving us incredible aerial views of volcanos, black and white beaches, national parks and many more scenic vistas.


Fuerteventura - The Red Pearl

Jeroen Schrage Videography

Jeroen Schrage Videography created this breathtaking drone video of Fuertaventura, the second largest of Spain's Canary Islands.  It is situated towards the eastern side of the archipelago, just east of Gran Canaria.  Fuertaventura covers a land area of just under 1.7k square km (about 640 square mi.), and has a population of about 75,000.  As you will see from the video, it's landscape is like no place on earth; parts of the island could be mistaken for Mars!


Islas Canarias - Gran Canaria & Lanzarote - trip with DJI Mavic PRO


Contributor tigger_81 created this epic drone video of Gran Canaria and Lanzarote, two of Spain's Canary Islands.  Gran Canaria is situated in the middle of the archipelago, which sits off the coast of North Africa.  Lanzerote is the northeasternmost of the islands.  Gran Canaria is the second most populous island (after Tenerife), with about 850,000 inhabitants, nearly 6x the population of Lanzerote.  As you'll see, the volcanic origins of both islands makes for some stunning scenery.



Contributor captured some incredible aerial footage of Tenerife, the most populous of the seven main Canary Islands.  Using a DJI Mavic Pro drone, his footage features an island which represents a blend of Spanish and North African cultures.  With nearly 900,000 inhabitants this is scarcely a deserted island, yet as you'll see in the video Tenerife still features some pristine natural beauty, brought to life with some very skillful timelapses.


Sand Volcano

LRM Videos

LRM Videos used a combination of ground camera and drone footage to create this amazing video of Volcán de Arena, one of the volcanoes of Fuerteventura in Spain's Canary Islands.  This is one of a half dozen volcanoes on this island, which is situated due east of Gran Canaria.   The video features dramatic sweeping shots of the crater, time lapses, and even a peak at a large predatory bird.  The number of active volcanoes is a function of their relatively young geological age.


Agaete - Gran Canaria Island, Spain


For a nice aerial view of Spain's Grand Canaria, it's tough to beat this drone video by Franxifra.  He captured this footage at Agaete, a small town in the northwestern part of the island.  Somewhat confusingly, Gran Canaria is not actually the largest island in the archipelago - that distinction belongs to Tenerife, which lies to its west.  Nevertheless, Gran Canaria is probably the best known of the seven main islands which make up the group.  


Tenerife 2018 with Mavic 2 Pro


The amazingly powerful DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone is put to good use in this epic video of Tenerife, the largest of Spain's Canary Islands off the coast of North Africa.  Contributor MartinD combined drone footage with ground camera footage and some skillful editing to create an epic look at this spectacular island, which currently receives an incredible 5 million visitors per year.  You'll get bird's eye views of the island's spectacular coastline, beautiful ports, and amazing volcanoes.


Lanzarote Aerial - Land of volcanoes, writers, artists and tranquility


Contributor Pedrolftavares used a drone to give us a beautiful aerial tour of Lanzarote, one of Spain's Canary Islands off the North African coast in the Atlantic.  It's the fourth largest of the Canaries in terms of land area, and it's considerably less well known than Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and Fuerteventura.  Lying to the north and east of the other islands, it's also volcanic in origin.  The last known volcanic activity on the island occurred in the 18th century.

The smallest of the Canary Islands, El Hierro, is paradise for those looking to escape the daily grind but it's also perfect for first person view (FPV) drone pilots, especially freestylers. FPV Pilot Lougedo explores all the amazing features of El Hierro with his racing quadcopter. Remembering that he is flying with video goggles, see how he zooms between gaps in the wave-lapped rock formations on the island's Atlantic coasts and high above the sharp mountain ridges. 


Trail Running | Canary Island | Gran Canaria


Get those trails, gurl!  Take an aerial trek up to the rocky, mountainous hills of Tenteniguada, Gran Canaria (the third largest in the archipelago of Spain's seven Canary Islands) to see this literal trailblazer bounding through the challenging terrain.  The exhilarating aerial views, provided by drone videographer Rodolfofalcon, of this intense trail run will have you on the edge of your seat, and possibly thinking of the Canaries for your next vacation adventure. 



Sergei Pinin

From the view of his DJI Mavic 2 Zoom drone, contributor Sergei Pinin filmed the incredible views of Tenerife. As the biggest of the Canary Islands, it offers a range of stunning views from its inland mountain ranges and geothermal landmarks, to its choppy coastal waters.  You'll enjoy soaring along as the setting sun warms the face of a striking sea cliff that plunges straight into the sea.  The Canaries are located off the coast of Morocco, and are territories of Spain.
