The Wonders of Tenerife | Drone 4K

davidaguilar

Top contributor Davidaguilar, whose video "Magic Iceland" won the People's Choice Award at the second annual Drone Video Awards, used a DJI Mavic Air to create this stunning video from Tenerife in Spain's Canary Islands.  The largest and most well known of the seven islands  which make up the archipelago off the coast of North Africa, Tenerife's beauty has led to its "starring" in numerous movies such as the Sophia Loren classic One Million Years B.C. (1966) and Fast & Furious 6 (2013), among others.

FUERTEVENTURA - Only The Winds (2019)

IVAL PhotoVideo

The second largest of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is a popular tourist destination because of its white-sand beaches and year-round warm temperatures coupled with its constant cooling winds. Situated in the Atlantic Oean just 60 miles off the coast of Africa, this gorgeous island is known for its excellent water sport conditions. IVAL PhotoVideo combined nearly 200 videos to create this piece that highlights the island from the perspective of the Mavic 2 Pro.  This was a DVOW Finalist in March, 2019.

Agaete - Gran Canaria Island, Spain

franxifra

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.

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.

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.

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.

If your having a hard time picking your "favorite Canary", this drone video by contributor Yuran may tip the scales in favor of Fuerteventura.  The second largest of the archipelago, Fuerteventura may be the most "other worldly" of the group.  It's why the island has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.  Its coloring, the shape of its volcanic craters, the shape of its seaside cliffs - everything about the place is spectacular, and the best of it is brought out here.  This video was filmed with a DJI Mavic Pro.
