Greenland and its Icebergs


Greenland. Ice Waltz. Shot on DJI Inspire 3.

In this amazing piece by top content creator, you'll explore the icebergs of Greenland, the world's largest island.  Filmed primarily DJI Inspire 3, with additional footage from a first person view (FPV) drone, the video was shot while traveling on boat with scarlet sails that stand out brilliantly from the white icebergs.  Home to the world's second-largest ice cap after Antarctica, Greenland is the source of most of the icebergs seen in the Northern Hemisphere.  This was a Finalist for the 2023 Drone Video of the Year.

Greenland Epic Photo Tour


It is difficult to comprehend the immensity of Greenland, the massive Danish controlled island in the North Atlantic Ocean.  Covering a massive land area of nearly 2.2 million square km (836k square mi), the world's largest island is more than double the size of the second largest (THE tropical island of New Guinea) and roughly 6x the land area of Germany.  Top contributor Daniel Kordan used a drone to create this stunning visual tour of the island, replete with giant icebergs and shimmering glaciers.

Prepare to be swept away by this stunning drone video from Greenland, compliments of top contributor Brendon Dixon.  He journeyed from Iceland to eastern Greenland aboard the old fashioned sailing ship Arktika, and brought along a very modern piece of equipment to record the journey: a DJI Phantom 4 drone.  The result is absolutely spectacular.  Greenland is truly one of the last frontiers, and the bird's eye footage of the beautiful wooden ship navigating its iceberg fields will astound you.  

The Iceberg Fields of East Greenland


Incredible Iceberg Footage

Florian Le...

Award-winning contributor, nature photographer, and drone pilot Florian Ledoux created this stunning aerial video of the vast iceberg fields of East Greenland.  Greenland holds particular interest for him due to its potential damage from global warming: if the vast Greenland ice sheet were to melt at once, it would raise the global sea level by over 7 meters (24 ft.) and wash away many of the world's coastal cities.  Ride along for this fascinating view of a spot in the cross-hairs of global warming.

Virtually all of Greenland's towns are located on its western coastline.  One of these is Ilulissat.  With a population of about 4,500, it's the largest town in the Avannaata region, which covers the northern part of the island's western coast.  In this stunning drone video by inva+sla, you'll get a bird's eye view of the extensive iceberg population which inhabit the waters off of the coast near the town.  The icebergs are produced by Greenland's massive ice sheet, the world's largest outside of the poles. 

Scoresby Sound by FPV




Just as Iceland has become something of a magnet for adventuresome first person view (FPV) drone pilots, the much larger (but far less-traveled) island of Greenland is coming onto the collective radar of the worldwide FPV community.  In this stunning piece by AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot Benjamin_Fpv, you'll see why.  The video was filmed over Scoresby Sound, which is located about midway down Greenland's eastern coast and which is home to a system of fjords.  This video was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in September, 2022.

After Nazi Germany invaded and quickly conquered Denmark in the early part of World War II, the US seized the gigantic Danish territory known as the island of Greenland as a protective measure. Once the US joined the war and was fighting the Battle of the Atlantic, it decided to establish a base called Bluie East Two near the town of Ikateq on the island's eastern coast.  The base was essentially abandoned after the war, leaving the eerie scene which you'll see in this amazing drone video by sfdrones.  

FPV: Whales in Greenland


Dancing with Whales

Peter Bart...

AirVuz contributor Peter Barthelson was working on a research vessel in Greenland when he spotted a pair of whales moving about in the icebergs off the giant island's eastern coast.  He was able to get his FPV drone up in time to film the beautiful creatures, who seemed unaware of the presence of the drone.  The whales, which he believes were mother and calf humpbacks, stayed in place long enough for him to create this stunning video.   At least 15 different whale species can be found off the coast of the world's largest island.

A coastal town in western Greenland, Ilulissat is an Arctic gem. Its pink sunrises and sunsets, clean white glaciers, and Northern Lights, seen in this drone video by fpl1966, make it something to remember. In fact, the town's name translates to "iceberg" in Kalaallisut - Greenland's native language. The Ilulissat Iceberg, the most popular iceberg in the area, was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004.  It's located about 350 km (around 220 mi.) north of the Arctic Circle.

The gigantic island of Greenland is a drone cinematographer's dream location. With natural beauty on display everywhere, epic sunsets and sunrises, minimal human disruption, and rare access it's no wonder great videos shot on the island of ice are hard to come by. This piece by maxbaloo is an instant classic -  complete with those mandatory dynamic shots, but also a few exciting clips of a wakeboarder zipping through the icy landscape.  The world's largest island, it's a territory of Denmark.

Ilulissat Icefjord Drone Views


Ilulissat Icefjord, Greenland - A World Heritage Site


Check out this amazing 4k drone video from the Ilulissat Icefjord of western Greenland, compliments of contributor and pilot AnneSofie.  Running west from the Greenland Ice Sheet, the Ilulissat is fed by the Jakobshavn Glacier, considered one of the most productive in the Northern Hemisphere.  The icebergs which are calved off and float into the fjord can be enormous - up to 1k meters tall or about 3.3k ft.  The largest are too tall for the relatively shallow sea and can be stuck on the bottom for many years before floating free.
