Kayaking in the Arctic - Svartisen glacier with Beyond Limits

Zdeno Dvorak

Like most outdoor activities, Kayaking depends on reasonable weather to be enjoyable.  Norway doesn't typically come to mind when one thinks of kayaking spots, but one of the surprising things about northern Norway is that the climate is relatively temperate.  In this video, contributor Zdeno Dvorak uses a drone to show us the joy of paddling a kayak in the area around Svartisen Glaciers in Norway's Nordland County, on the edge of the Arctic Circle.

Top contributor Uncle Damn was hired to provide aerial video services for the European Wildwater Canoeing Championship in Matka, Macedonia. Representatives from the host nation as well as from Germany, France, Italy, the UK, and several other nations were on hand.  His drone video of the event provides a bird's eye view of some world class kayaking, as well as some great aerial views of Macedonia.

Dviete Floodplains, Latvia

Eaglewood Pictures

The Dviete River is a tributary of the Daugava River in southeastern Latvia.  Occasionally, in years of heavy rainfall, the larger river backs up from spring runoff.  When this happens, it turns the Dviete floodplains into a paradise for kayakers (as well as for birds of various species).  Contributor Eaglewood Films used a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone to capture this kayaking scene in one of the oldest parts of this Baltic Sea republic.

Hawaii Nui Vaa 2017

Tahiti Fly Shoot

The Polynesian people who initially populated Hawaii were some of the earth's first seagoing peoples, and (as with other seagoing cultures) the key was having the right type of boat.  In this case, it was a boat style called a Va'a, which is an outrigger type canoe that has proven its seaworthiness over the centuries.  Tahiti Fly Shoot flew over the 2017 Hawaiki Nui Va'a race and created this spectacular drone video of the event, which is the largest such outrigger canoe event in the world.

Kayak&Yoga

Bedrone

Terragon sits in the northeastern corner of Spain in its Catalonia region, and is a prime destination for travelers seeking both adventure and relaxation.  In this amazing drone video, contributor Bedrone manages to capture both instincts from an aerial point of view.  His video shows kayakers paddling in the clear blue sea, and then transitions to a group of people practicing yoga in a rocky cove.  This area is known variously as the Costa Brava or the Spanish Riviera.

Kayaking on the glacier lake of Lovatnet

www.aerialnorway.com

The Lovatnet is a beautiful glacier lake in Norway's Lodal Valley, in Sogn of Fjordane County in the western part of the country. The water comes from the Kjenndal Glacier.  The lake is a distinctive shade of green because it contains clay particles and rock dust, carved out by glaciers and swept along by rivers.  It is an outstanding spot for kayaking, as demonstrated by this awesome aerial video from contributor Aerial Norway.

In this video, top contributor Wrenee, aka the Queen of the Dronie, takes her act to the massive Lake Nicaragua in the country of the same name.  Shooting from a kayak in the massive body of water, she uses her trademark pullout shot to film the lake (which is the 19th largest lake in the world by surface area) and the massive volcano behind it. Scenes like this are causing Nicaragua to follow the path originally set by Costa Rica to become a top travel destination.

Kayak polo in Trondheim, Norway

hopenorway

In Central Norway, kayaks aren't just for getting from point A to point B.  As contributor Hopenorway shows us, kayak polo is a "thing".  From Trondheim, the major city in the region, he brings us an aerial view of a kayak polo game.  It's just like water polo except, well except instead of swimming it's played on kayaks.  Given what are likely fairly cold water temperatures, perhaps it's just as well to be floating on the water rather than swimming in it.

Kayaking the ice shelf

myworldphoto

As most of the most well known parts of Canada's British Columbia are in the southern part of the province, it's easy to forget just how far north it extends.  A good deal of southern Alaska in the USA lies just west of BC, and the province's northern border is at 60 degrees north latitude.  In this video by Myworldphoto, you'll get a bird's eye view of one of the growing activities in northern BC: kayaking on the edges of the extensive glaciers which line much of the northern Pacific coast.
