The Faroe Islands is an archipelago controlled by Denmark in the northern Atlantic Ocean.  Consisting of 18 major islands and hundreds of smaller islands and islets, they lie north of  Scotland, southeast of Iceland, and west of Norway.  Once part of Norway, the islands were eventually ceded to Denmark by treaty in the early 1800's.  In this drone video by contributor Taam, a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone beautifully captures the rugged landscape and moody colors of the islands, with amazing time-lapse effects built in as well.

Boyanoo

Both informational and inspirational, contributor Boyanoo's aerial footage highlights the pure grandeur of the Faroe Islands. The baritone voice of the narrator and the sweeping aerial shots depict the beauty of the untouched landscapes of the North Atlantic Danish archipelago.  It's a land of hundreds of mini-Icelands, with landforms that hint at the short period of time these islands have been in existence.  A true force of nature calls to us in this moving Drone Video of the Week Nominee.

Faroe Islands - Majestic & Superior in 4K

DroneDirector

In this Drone Video of the Week nominated video by DroneDirector, you'll get an aerial tour from the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic Ocean.  Consisting of 18 main islands, the archipelago is known for its rugged, largely untouched terrain and sub polar oceanic climate, meaning it is frequently windy, wet, cloudy, and cool. This video covers three of the group's 18 islands: Eysturoy, the second largest of the islands; Streymoy, the largest and most populated island; and Vagar, the most westerly of the islands.

Boyanoo

Hit the road with contributor Boyanoo and his travel buddy, @Kaptain.kenny, on their aerial adventure through the Faroe Islands. Cruising through roads that wind between the Danish island's sea towns, tight sounds, and craggy mountains, and mind-blowing rock formations along its coasts, the sights seen from above completely arrest the viewer's attention. Similar yet quite distinct from Iceland (to which the Faroes are often compared), there's nothing else quite like them on Earth.

Climbing a Cliff Face (EPIC)

DroneDirector

The rocky cliffs of the Faroe Islands have been drawing rock climbers from around the world to this North Atlantic archipelago.  In this video, top contributor and pilot DroneDirector used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to film some climbers scaling the vertical cliffs which abound throughout the islands, which are a territory of the nation of Denmark.  It is definitely not a place for people who are scared of cold water -  the North Atlantic waters rarely exceed 11 degrees Celsius (about 50 degrees Farenheit).

What exactly is a sea stack?  Watch this video from Drone Director to find out.  He filmed some very brave climbers tackling a sea stack north of the island of Kunoy in the Faroe Islands, the Danish-controlled archipelago in the North Atlantic.  Sea stacks are essentially giant rocks protruding from the floor of the North Atlantic Ocean.  This particular sea stack is called Oldan, and it's located just to the north of the island.  If it looks small, it's only by comparison to the giant cliffs of the island!
