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.

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.

This drone video will strike a chord with you right off the bat. Accomplished pilot sfdrones opens with a spectacular, top-down shot of a mother whale and her calf as they travel through the waters around Greenland. His aerial piece of the island nation moves on to capture shots of the many glaciers and icebergs surrounding Greenland, more top-down shots of breeching whales, plus plenty of shots of the sun setting behind the ice, adding exquisite color to the scene. This video was a DVOW finalist in November 2019.

Florian Ledoux

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 in the North Atlantic Ocean.  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.

Content creator and pilot 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.

Greenland Epic Photo Tour

It is difficult to comprehend the immensity of Greenland, the massive Danish controlled island in the North Atlantic Ocean.  Covering a massive land area of nearly 2.2 million square km (836k square mi), the world's largest island is more than double the size of the second largest (THE tropical island of 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.

After Nazi Germany invaded and quickly conquered Denmark in the early part of World War II, the US seized the gigantic Danish territory known as the island of Greenland as a protective measure. Once the US joined the war and was fighting the Battle of the Atlantic, it decided to establish a base called Bluie East Two near the town of Ikateq on the island's eastern coast.  The base was essentially abandoned after the war, leaving the eerie scene which you'll see in this amazing drone video by sfdrones.

Incredible Iceberg Footage

Florian Ledoux

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.

A coastal town in western Greenland, Ilulissat is an Arctic gem. Its pink sunrises and sunsets, clean white glaciers, and Northern Lights, seen in this drone video by fpl1966, make it something to remember. In fact, the town's name translates to "iceberg" in Kalaallisut - Greenland's native language. The Ilulissat Iceberg, the most popular iceberg in the area, was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004.  It's located about 350 km (around 220 mi.) north of the Arctic Circle.

The gigantic island of Greenland is a drone cinematographer's dream location. With natural beauty on display everywhere, epic sunsets and sunrises, minimal human disruption, and rare access it's no wonder great videos shot on the island of ice are hard to come by. This piece by maxbaloo is an instant classic -  complete with those mandatory dynamic shots, but also a few exciting clips of a wakeboarder zipping through the icy landscape.  The world's largest island, it's a territory of Denmark.
