Mavic Pro + GoPro 5 | Pyrenees - A walk in the snow

Karl Veca

The Pyrenees Mountains, by which the Iberian Peninsula attaches to the rest of Europe, are not the Alps.  With a maximum altitude of about 3.4k meters (11.1k ft), the peaks of this range are generally accessible by (physically fit) hikers.  Even in the snow, as Karl Veca shows us in this great video of an epic hike in the Spanish Pyrenees.  It was created with a DJI Mavic Pro drone supplemented with GoPro ground footage.

A Journey through France's Pyrenees Mountains

LeVoyagedesKoumoul

The Pyrennes Mountains serve as the border between France and Spain, two of the world's first true nation-states.  While the Pyrenees peaks lack the altitude of the Alps, the region is nonetheless spectacular, with mountain peaks exceeding 3k meters above sea level (about 11k ft.), lush valleys, and spectacular rock formations.  Contributor LeVoyagedesKoumoul treats us to an aerial tour of the Néouvielle National Nature Reserve; it's in the Hautes-Pyrénées Department in the heart of the French Pyrénées.

Andorra Cinematic Footage | Mavic Pro + Gopro

Karl Veca

Andorra is one of the least well known countries in Europe.  Technically known as the Principality of Andorra, the tiny nation sits in the heart of the Pyrenees, the mountain chain which forms the natural border between Spain and France.  Andorra has a land area covering less than 500 square km (about 180 square miles), making it smaller than many cities.  As you'll see in this drone video from contributor and pilot Karl Veca, what Andorra lacks in size it makes up for in spectacular mountain scenery.

A Beautiful Hike in the South of France

LeVoyagedesKoumoul

This drone video from the Pyrenees Mountains will demonstrate that "Mountains" in France does not always mean "Alps".  While the Pyrenees peaks lack the altitude of a Mont Blanc, they are stunningly beautiful, perhaps all the more so for being less well known than the taller mountains to their northeast. LeVoyagedesKoumoul captures the graceful beauty of these mountains which separate France from Spain.

Pedraforca is one of the most well known sights in Spain's northeastern Catalonia region.  It's part of the Pyrenees Mountains, in an area sometimes called the "Pre-Pyrenees" which lies to the south of the tallest peaks.  The mountain's peak is about 2.5k meters (8.2k ft) above sea level.  It's so well known in part because it presents so prominently, with no other mountains directly connected to it.  Contributor Pepinair created this magnificent aerial video of the mountain using a DJI Mavic Pro drone.
