The Faroe Islands is an archipelago controlled by Denmark in the northern Atlantic Ocean.  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 Adventures

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.

Scaling the Cliffs of the Faroe's

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, contributor DroneDirector used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to film some climbers scaling the vertical cliffs which abound throughout the islands.  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).

XL Creations made the most of his day on Streymoy, the largest of the Faroe Islands.  His drone video shows the stunning beauty of this North Atlantic archipelago, which has been a territory of Denmark since the early 19th century.  Streymoy has a population of just under 25,000 and occupies a land area of about 375 square km (about 150 square mi.).  Watch the video to see why the Faroe's are becoming the go-to spot for drone pilots around the world!

DroneDirector

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!

Check out this drone video of the principal city of Denmark's Faroe Islands, compliments of contributor DroneDirector.  The city of Tórshavn lies on the eastern coast of Stremoy, the largest and most populated of this North Atlantic archipelago.  The main part of the city lies on a narrow peninsula which juts out into the sea from the "mainland".  With a current population of a bit over 20,000, it's been the most important city in the Faroes since it was founded in the 9th century AD.

Top contributor DroneDirector created this beautiful drone video of an area around a tiny village in the Faroe Islands, a Danish-controlled archipelago in the North Atlantic Ocean.  The village is called Saksun and it's on the island of Streymoy, the largest and most populous of the main 18 Faroes.  Saksun is situated in the northwestern part of the island, in an area that was once an inlet of the sea but which became a lagoon after the path to the sea was blocked by sand deposition.

Mikladalur is a tiny village on the island of Kalsoy, one of Denmark's Faroe Islands chains in the North Atlantic Ocean.  Tiny, as in the population in 2005 was just 44 people! Its small population is probably one of the reasons it's such a joy to fly in. Meaning "great valley or dale" it is the largest of the four towns on the island of Kalsoy (one of the northeastern Faroes) and features the incredible landscapes those familiar with the Faroe Islands have come to expect.

DroneDirector

The Danish-controlled archipelago that is the Faroe Islands is one of the most beautiful places for flying in the world, hailed by many as the "Next Iceland".  DroneDirector took his Phantom 4 Pro to the historic lands to create this breathtaking, 4K video featuring both snowy and green shots of Saksun on the island of Streymoy ; and Vagar ((the westernmost of the islands); and Rituvik, Æðuvík, and Syrðugøta (all on the island of Eysturoy, the second largest of the Faroes in size and population).

If you want to understand why the Faroe Islands are being called the New Iceland, check out this travel video by top contributor zimydakid.  He spent ten days traveling through this North Atlantic archipelago, which is a territory of Denmark.  Located roughly between Norway and Iceland, the Faroe's feature some of the most rugged (and beautiful) territory in the world.  The video will take you around some of this scenery, including stunning seaside cliffs, giant sea stacks, and copious wildlife.

MV Columbus

DroneDirector

The Faroe Islands have gone from being a largely unknown North Atlantic atoll to an emerging tourist destination, and one way this is manifesting itself is with the cruise market.  With a comparatively under-developed lodging infrastructure, cruise ships offer a great way for passengers coming from Europe to see these volcanic wonders.  In this video, top contributor DroneDirector was able to use a drone to capture the MV Columbus steaming its way through the Faroes.

DroneDirector produced this beautiful montage of drone footage from across the Faroe Islands.  The islands, which operate as a semi-autonomous territory of Denmark, sit well off in the North Atlantic, roughly halfway between Western Norway and Southern Iceland.  The group consists of 18 "major" islands, the largest of which is about 375 square km (roughly 150 square mi.) plus several hundred small to tiny islands and islets, some of which are no more than large rocks.

DroneDirector

Top contributor DroneDirector created this awesome aerial view from two spots in the Faroe Islands, a North Atlantic island archipelago which is part of Denmark.  Bøur and Gásadalur are two towns on the western side of the island of Vágar.  Vágar is the westernmost of the nine major islands in the group.  Area-wise, it's the third largest of the islands, after Streymoy and Esturoy.  On a map, the island closely resembles a dog's head, with the two towns featured here in the "mouth" of the canine.
