Virtually all of Greenland's towns are located on its western coastline.  One of these is Ilulissat.  With a population of about 4,500, it's the largest town in the Avannaata region, which covers the northern part of the island's western coast.  In this stunning drone video by inva+sla, you'll get a bird's eye view of the extensive iceberg population which inhabit the waters off of the coast near the town.  The icebergs are produced by Greenland's massive ice sheet, the world's largest outside of the poles.

Award winning content creator Florian Ledeaux created this stunning drone video of Greenland, the world's largest island which is part of the territory of Denmark.  Sailing around Greenland and towards northern Canada, he used his drone to create a breathtaking aerial view of massive icebergs, walruses, Beluga whales, and even unicorn-like Norwals.   An avid environmentalist, Ledoux aims to use his videos to illustrate the fragility of the eco-system to climate change.

Rasmus H-P used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to create this stunning video of Ilulissat Icefjord on the west coast of Greenland.  The fjord is created by Jakobshavn Glacier, one of the largest on this massive North Atlantic island.  The glacier, which is the most productive in the Western Hemisphere, annually produces 35 billion tons of icebergs which float out through Ilulissat.  The fjord and the glacier have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Award winning aerial photographer and videographer Florian Ledoux used drone and ground camera footage to create this remarkable video of arctic foxes in Greenland.  This species is native to arctic environments.  These small foxes are extremely hardy creatures - they can survive in temperatures up to 90-100 degrees lower than their core temperature.  Mr. Ledoux's video captures a group of these foxes playing onshore against a backdrop of a massive iceberg field.

It is difficult to comprehend the immensity of Greenland, the massive Danish controlled island in the North Atlantic Ocean.  At nearly 2.2 million square km (836k square mi), the world's largest island is more than double the size of the world's second largest island (New Guinea) and roughly 6x the land area of Germany.  Top contributor Daniel Kordan used a drone to create this stunning visual tour of the island, replete with giant icebergs and shimmering glaciers.

Wrenee, aka the Queen of the Dronie, gives us her trademark pull-out shot from Disko Island off the western coast of Greenland.  Disko is the second largest island of Greenland after the island of Greenland itself, the world's largest.  Disko, which is situated in Baffin Bay, is acually itself one of the world's 100 largest islands.  Disko has a population of about 1,000, making it the second most populated island of Greenland, which is a semi-autonomous region of Denmark.

Contributor Bdfilms.co.uk brings us this amazing drone video from the very southern tip of Greenland.  Prince Christian Sound separates the mainland of Greenland from the islands of the Cape Farewell Archipelago.  Being at the southern extremity of Greenland, it's actually a fairly temperate latitude, approximately level with Scotland and well south of Iceland and mainland Scandinavia.  As you will see from the video, the area offers spectacular natural scenery.

Prepare to be swept away by this stunning drone video from Greenland, compliments of top contributor Brendon Dixon.  He journeyed from Iceland to eastern Greenland aboard the old fashioned sailing ship Arktika, and brought along a very modern piece of equipment to record the journey: a DJI Phantom 4 drone.  The result is absolutely spectacular.  Greenland is truly one of the last frontiers, and the bird's eye footage of the beautiful wooden ship navigating its iceberg fields will astound you.

Award winning contributor, nature photographer, and drone pilot Florian Ledoux created this stunning aerial video of the vast iceberg fields of East Greenland.  Greenland hold particular interest for him due to its potential damage from global warming: if the vast Greenland ice sheet were to melt at once, it would raise the global sea level by over 7 meters (24 ft.) and wash away many of the world's coastal cities.  Ride along for this fascinating view of a spot in the cross-hairs of global warming.
