DVOW Finalist from the Dolomites




The Italian Dolomites are bustling with natural beauty and diversity. The peaks, also known as the “Pale Mountains” take their name from the carbonate rock dolomite. Part of the Alps system, they were formed over 280 million years ago when parts of Europe and Africa were merged into the supercontinent Pangaea. Drone pilot davidxtravel took his DJI Mavic Air out to the famous mountains, capturing this footage along the way, earning him a Drone Video of the Week nomination.

Aerial Views of South Tyrol


One Day in South Tyrol


Visitors to the South Tyrol province of northern Italy are sometimes confused by the German-sounding names which are almost ubiquitous here.  The reason for that is that the area was part of Austria (actually, the Austro-Hungarian Empire) until the defeat of the Central Powers in World War I.  As a reward for joining the Allied cause, Italy was granted control of the province as part of the peace settlement.  Check out this stunningly beautiful region from above in this drone video by johannesbloechl.  

Italy's Three Iconic Peaks


Tre Cime di Lavaredo


The three Northern Italian peaks you'll see here in this drone video by haussmannvisuals are variously known as Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Drei Zinnen, or the Three Merlons.  Under any name, they are amongst the most well-recognized mountain peaks in the entire Alps Mountains system.  Situated on the border between the South Tyrol province of Trentino-Alto-Adigio and the Belluno province of the Veneto region, the middle mountain of the massif has a peak altitude of 3k meters or 9.8k ft. above sea level.

Behond this fantastic 60 second drone video from the mountains of northern Italy, compliments of AirVuz contributor and pilot Dani Massaro.  The former Drone Video of the Week Finalist filmed the Dolomite Mountains just as the range was blanketed by the first snowfall of the season.  The Dolomites are part of the Northern Limestone Alps.  With peaks of up to about 3.35k meters above sea level (just under 11k ft.), they run across parts of the Trentino-Alto-Adigio and Veneto Region in the northern part of Italy.

Part of what makes the Dolomite Mountains of northern Italy so attractive is their accessibility.  Part of the Northern Limestone Alps, the Dolomites are shared between the Trentino-Alto-Adigio and Veneto Regions.  With altitudes of a little over 3.3k meters above sea level (about 11k ft.), they are far easier to reach compared to the taller peaks to the west.  This opens up endless possibilities for drone pilot to film the hikes as well as the spectacular piece, as you'll see in this amazing video by Alessandro_Campo.

Check out this fantastic drone video from the Dolomite Mountains in Italy's South Tyrol province, compliments of AirVuz contributor and pilot copter one.  The Schlern has a peak altitude of just under 2.6k meters above sea level or around 8.4k ft.  The mountain's peak is called Santner Spitze in honor of Johann Santner who first reached it in 1880.  Its Germanic name, common to many of the Dolomite Peaks, is a vestige of the fact that South Tyrol was under control of the Austro-Hungarian Empire prior to World War I.
