Aerial Tour of Oregon
For a great aerial introduction to the state of Oregon in the USA's Pacific Norhwest, it would be tough to beat this video by TomDrone. This production has something for everyone - yawning canyons, roaring waterfalls, vast forests, the iconic volcanic mountain Mt. Hood, bridges and viaduct that run forever, spectacular coastal boulders, even a logging camp. This video makes a credible case for the Beaver State being the singlemost beautiful state in the entire United States.
The Oregon Coast

It affords bird's eye views of some of the most spectacular coastline in the United States.
Drone Tour of Seattle
Seattle, Washington is the principal city of the USA's Pacific Northwest, and it is one of the 15 largest metro areas in the United States. It is a highly cosmopolitan city of giant gleaming skyscrapers that is the center of the worldwide jet airplane industry, and yet the giant Mount Rainier visible in the distant background puts it all in perspective. In this short but impressive video, contributor David Yip gives us an aerial tour of the Seattle waterfront on Puget Sound.
Oregon by DJI Mavic Air
This drone video of Oregon in the USA's Pacific Northwest won the Drone Video of the Week Contest in August, 2018.

Exploring Washington State
Washington State is situated in the the northwest corner of the United States, bordering the Canadian province of British Columbia. The Evergreen State has some of the greatest landscape diversity of any state, with vast pine forests, towering volcanic mountain peaks, and a large desert in the eastern part of the state. Contributor Explorewashingtonstate does just that with this great aerial tour of this amazing state in the northwestern corner of the continental USA.
Volcanoes of Oregon
Some of the best hiking areas of the continental USA are in the country's Pacific Northwest. Washington and Oregon both offer a huge tracts of forests, mountains, and river valleys which offer spectacular natural scenery to some of the world's most avid hikers. In this video, contributor Shanestiles took a Nikon camera and a DJI Phantom 4 drone on an epic hike to some remote volcanic mountains in Oregon, resulting in some epic views of Oregon's amazing geology.
Dronie from the Columbia River Gorge
Contributor Dirka was one of the first drone pilots to gain a large following on Instagram; he currently has well over 200k fans. He is a professional photographer and his drone videos reflect that background. In this video, he sets up a group drone selfie flying backwards over the Columbia River Gorge in America's Pacific Northwest. The pull-out provides an epic view of the mighty canyon carved by one of North America's largest rivers, which divides the states of Oregon and Washington.
Washington's Vance Creek Bridge
Top contributor 60 Seconds used a drone to create this amazing aerial tour of an abandoned bridge in the USA's Pacific Northwest. The Vance Creek Bridge was built in the 1920's to serve the logging industry in Washington. As the fortunes of the state's forestry sector waned, the bridge was de-commissioned in the 1970's. Now it's a major attraction for hikers who seek out this amazing span, which stands 106 meters (347 ft.) tall. It's listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Mighty Columbia Gorge
Oregon Skywalker created this beautiful drone video shot on the Columbia River, unquestionably the most important in western North America. It drains a huge section of the mountains of the USA's Pacific Northwest and Canada's British Columbia province, running 2k km (1.24k mi.) before discharging into the Pacific Ocean in Oregon. The third largest purely USA river by discharge volume, it supplies the region with some of its top tourist spots as well as most of its electricity.
Fall in the North Cascades
The North Cascades of Washington, United States, is a vast wilderness of conifer-clad mountains, glaciers and lakes. They are located northwest of Seattle, near the Canadian border. AirVuz contributor Chris Neibauer takes us on one epic ride around the mountains on dirt bikes in this edit. Shot with both GoPros and drone footage, you get both the intense impact on the ground cameras attached to the bikers mixed with the awe-inspiring beauty that is the mountain range in fall from above.
A Weekend in Oregon
Top contributor Braybraywoowoo ventured from his native British Columbia over the border and down a state to Oregon. Using a combination of drone and ground camera footage, he created this memorable video of his road trip. In addition to some beautiful shots of the state's rock coastline, dense forests, and beautiful mountains, he was able to aerially film one of the most amazing spots in the state: a retired 727 jetliner that now serves as a home in the Oregon woods!
Abandoned Oregon Paper Mill
The USA's Pacific Northwest was once home to a huge forest products industry, with hundreds of saw and paper mills around the region. With the rise of much tighter environmental restrictions, high labor costs, and tough competition from foreign producers, the industry in Washington and Oregon has been decimated. In this video, contributor 60 Seconds gives us a bird's eye view of a paper mill in Blue Heron, OR which succumbed to the poor conditions and was abandoned several years ago.
Pacific Northwest by Mavic 2
Geared up with his DJI Mavic 2 drone, contributor Hofcut explored the famously scenic views of North America's Pacific Northwest.

Come along for some fantastic views of the city and its beautiful natural surroundings.
Oregon's Yaquina Head Lighthouse
The rocky shores of the USA's Pacific Northwest are notoriously dangerous for shipping, and lighthouses continue to be critical for maintaining shipping safety. Yaquina Head Light is in Lincoln County, Oregon, near the mouth of the Yaquina River. First lit in 1873, it's one of the most well known lighthouses in the region, and at 28 meters (93 ft.) it's the tallest such structure in the state. In this video, you can see this iconic lighthouse from a bird's eye perspective, compliments of contributor Cward360.
Flying above Oregon
Flying high above the trees, this is one fantastic drone video of Oregon. The state located on the Pacific Coast of the United States is known for its diverse landscape of forests, mountains, farmland, and beaches. The video was shot by contributor and drone pilot Michael Roth, who logged his 1,000th mile of flight in the making of this video - a worthy goal for any pilot. See some of the beauty of the Beaver State in this magnificent 4K piece!
Oregon's Multnomah Falls
Contributor EdDrone created this beautiful drone video of one of the most well known waterfalls in the USA's Pacific Northwest. Multnomah Falls is on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. It's the highest waterfall in Oregon, with a total height of alomost 189 meters (620 ft.) in two drops. It is fed by water runoff from Larch Mountain, an extinct volcano near Portland. The falls and the footpaths around it are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Oregon's Williamette Valley
Contributor Michael Roth created this beautiful aerial video showing some of the natural beauty of Oregon, the southern of the two states which make up the USA's Pacific Northwest. The video was shot along the Williamette Valley, which runs roughly 240 km (around 150 mi.) south from Portland, the state's largest city and is truly the heart of the Beaver State as the home of its largest cities. The video includes footage of Opal Lake, Boca Cave, Triangulation Peak, and more.
Bradladua used a DJI Mavic Pro combined with a ground camera to create this video of Spokane, Washington. It's the second largest city in the state, and on the opposite (eastern) end from Seattle. Bordering the state of Idaho, Spokane is culturally more of the Rocky Mountain region than the Pacific Northwest in many ways. Like many western cities, it owed its early growth to the railways that were making their way across the country, and it continues to be an important transport hub.

Watch it and you will likely agree that Oregon is amongst the first rank of US states when it comes to natural beauty.
Klamath County, OR: Lake of the Woods
Check out this stunning drone video of a forest-encircled lake in Oregon, compliments of contributor shanestiles. Lake of the Woods is located in Klamath County in the southern part of the Beaver State. It's situated in the Fremont–Winema National Forest, in the heart of the Cascades Mountains range. Though not particularly large, the lake is known for its fishing waters, and it's one of the most popular destinations in southern Oregon. The video beautifully captures the lake on a misty morning.
Ports of Seattle-Tacoma
Here is an amazing aerial view of a large ship being towed into one of the USA's busiest ports. The vessel is a containership operated by Evergreen Marine, a large Taiwanese shipping company which operates about 150 of these behemoths. The ship is being towed into the Port of Tacoma, which lies south of Seattle on Washington's Puget Sound. The ports of Tacoma and Seattle merged their operations in 2015 to form the Northwest Seaport Alliance, which is now the USA's #4 container port.
Killer Whales in Puget Sound
Contributor cward360 created this awesome video of some orca's feeding in the waters of Puget Sound in Washington State. They were filmed in Henderson Bay, an inlet of the sound near Gig Harbor. If you look at a map of the area it's a wonder that these creatures can navigate the convoluted waterways in the area; just making it to the Tacoma Narrow Bridge near the southern end of the sound looks complicated enough and the waterways narrow even further from there!
The Oregon Coast
In this video, award winning contributor Jay Worsley created a masterpiece by brilliantly mixing astoundingly beautiful aerial footage from across the Western USA. The two spots which get top billing are the Pacific coastline of Oregon, and southern Utah. Brilliantly narrated, the video will take you over the enormous rocks that line the Oregon coastline as well as the spectacular formations of Moab. It's a Finalist in the Landscapes category for the second annual Annual Drone Video Awards.
Oregon in Easter Splendor
The stunning beauty of the USA's Pacific Northwest is on full display in this magnificent drone video by contributor Michael Roth.

Washington and Oregon in B&W
From the sunny beaches in southern California, to the wild, lush forests of northern Washington, nearly every mile of the USA's Pacific coast is worth a stop. Sfdrones takes several moments in Oregon and Washington to capture the beauty of winter clinging to the mountains and trees. The choice to edit the piece in black and white was a risk, but we believe it gives the viewer a sense of the beauty and stillness the pilot felt while taking in his surroundings.
Oregon's Santiam River Valley
Top contributor Michael Roth used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone to create this captivating aerial tour of a couple of gorgeous spots in the USA's Pacific Northwest. The area is the valley of the Santiam River, a major tributary of the Williamette River which runs through northwestern Oregon. The video was shot in two spots: Little North Fork River (a tributary of the Santiam) and Detroit Lake, a reservoir created by an impoundment of the Santiam.
Olympic Peninsula and Puget Sound
Contributor Alaska42 create this magnificent drone video of a spot near the base of the Olympic Peninsula in the USA's Pacific Northwest. The video was shot around the town of Poulsbo, Washington, which lies on an inlet of a body of water called Liberty Bay. The bay sits on the western (Olympic Peninsula) side of Puget Sound, across which lies Seattle. The video captures the town's quaint harbor as well as the stunning natural scenes which abound in the countless inlets and islands which populate the Sound.
Seattle's Space Needle
Check out this nighttime aerial view of one of the most iconic sights in the USA's Pacific Northwest, compliments of Cumulus Imaging. The subject is the Seattle Space Needle, an observation tower on the outskirts of downtown Seattle, Washington. The tower, which stands just under 185 meters (a tad over 600 ft.) tall, was built in connection with the 1962 World Fair. Topped with an observation deck and rotating restaurants, it affords spectacular views of Puget Sound and (on clear days) Mt. Rainier.
Portland: Oregon's Bridge City
Since the turn of the 21st century if not a bit before, Portland, Oregon has been perenially at or near the top of the most authoritative lists of the hippest US cities. Much of its charm derives from its relationship to the water, specifically the Williamette River. This major Columbia River tributary courses through the heart of Portland, giving it the nickname "Bridge City". You'll get some great aerial views of the city, its river, and its bridges in this fantastic video from Drone One Media.
Mavic Pro 2 over the North Cascades
Check out this stunning drone video of the North Cascades Mountains in the USA's Pacific Northwest, compliments of contributor chrisneibaur. Part of the greater Cascades system, the North Cascades cover a portion of northern Washington state, with a portion extending north into Canada's British Columbia. The best known peak of the North Cascades in Mt. Baker, which as a peak altitude of just under 3.3k meters (about 10.8k ft.).
Waterfalls in the Santiam Valley
Much of the USA's Pacific Northwestern state of Oregon is covered by a series of valleys that run in a generally east-to-west direction. These valleys house rivers which flow into the Williamette River, which flows northwards and is a major tributary of the Columbia River. In this video, you'll get an aerial look at the Santiam River Valley. This short river drains a large area of the Cascades Mountains range which runs east of the Williamette.
Even if you’ve never heard of it, you’re sure to have seen Haystack Rock in Clatsop County, Oregon, USA. The 235-foot (72-meter) sea stack is adjacent to Cannon Beach and is accessible by foot at low tide. It's a popular tourist destination whose rock tide pools are home to starfish, sea anemone, sea slugs, and crabs. Drone pilot johstacy took this 4K, 60 frames per second non-filtered footage of the infamous monolith rock with the Autel EVO drone.
Seattle Outskirts by Evo
Seattle, Washington, USA is the home of Amazon, Starbucks and many other massive American companies' headquarters. However, just outside of the bustling metropolitan area is a wealth of vegetation, including Douglas fir, hemlock, western red cedar and ponderosa pine trees. The vibrant colors and variety of lush, green plants make it the perfect backdrop for any drone flight. Especially one flown by the folks at Autel Robotics with their EVO drone.
Droning America: Portland, Oregon
In this segment, Droning America heads to Portland, Oregon in the USA's Pacific Northwest, the quirky city which lies a three hour drive south of the larger city of Seattle.
