Jerusalem: Israel's Capital City


Above Jerusalem

Moshe Tuti...

Jerusalem, Israel is the only city which is central to three world religions: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.  Inhabited and fought over for millennia, it has a significance far out of proportion to its size.  The city, set in the hills of eastern Israel, on the edge of the Judean Desert, is also one of the most visually appealing cities on Earth.  In this remarkable drone video, you will get a bird's eye perspective of this ancient city, which is the center of the largest metropolitan area in Israel.

Enjoy these stunning aerial views of southern Israel, compliments of former Drone Video of the Week Winner kostas Gur.  Filmed with a DJI Mini 3 Pro, the video was filmed over the Negev, Judea and Arabah Deserts, which cover much of the southern part of the country and are home to some of the country's most spectacular natural scenery.  At about the 1:25 mark, you'll see the cable car leading to the top of Masada, the tabletop mountain which was the scene of a famous seige during Roman times.  

The Dead Sea and the Arava Region




Check out these fantastic drone videos from southern Israel, compliments of AirVuz contributor and pilot jameelkjhair.  Much of the video was filmed over the region of Arabah, which extends from the southern end of the Dead Sea to roughly the town of Eilat, on the Gulf of Aqaba (an inlet of the Red Sea).  At the :35 mark of the video, there's a great shot of the Mar Saba Monastery, a Greek Orthodox complex which is one of the oldest inhabited monasteries. which is roughly halfway between the northern end of the Dead Sea and Jerusalem.  

Jaffa: Ancient Port


The Port of Jaffa, Israel

Shlomi Zna...

Next to the very modern Israel city of Tel Aviv lies the very ancient city of Jaffa, which is known for its port on the Mediterranean Sea.  The port has been used for over 7,000 years – it is said to have been founded by Japheth, the son of the Biblical character Noah. The ancient port city sits in the shadows of the skyscrapers of Tel Aviv that lie just to its north.  Contributor Shlomi Znati uses a drone to give us an epic bird's eye view of this ancient seaport, which also features prominently in Greek mythology.  

The Fortress of Masada


Israel's Great Masada Fortress


Masada is an ancient fortification built atop a plateau in the Judean Desert of southern Israel, overlooking the Dead Sea.  During the First Jewish War of the first century AD, Masada was the site of a famous siege by Roman troops following which the Jewish defenders (numbering perhaps a thousand) committed suicide en masse rather than surrender.  Contributor Nelly Volkovich used a drone to create an amazing aerial video of this hallowed mountaintop, which is a UNESCO World Heritage cultural site.  

The Mountains of Northern Israel


DJI Mavic 2 Pro - Israel North 2019


Check out this stunning drone video of northern Israel, compliments of contributor mrgilchen.  Despite its diminutive size, Israel has an amazingly diverse set of landscapes.  The northern interior parts of the country look almost nothing like its Mediterranean coastline or its desert-covered south.  Rather, northern Israel is a temperate and often well-watered mountainous land.  In the video, shot with a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone, you'll see this amazing area as it comes to life in the Spring.

Haifa is Israel's third largest city and the largest in the northern part of the country.  It is a port city lying on the slopes of Mt. Caramel, the 525 meter (1.7k ft) peak that sits above the city.  Culturally it is best known as the site of the Bahai Gardens, center of the Bahai faith, which grew from roots in Iran in the 1960's to become a worldwide religion. Contributor Gilad J used a drone to create this impressive aerial tour of the magnificent gardens, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  

The Judaean Desert


Secrets of the Judaean Desert


The Judean Desert runs parallel to the Dead Sea in the southeastern part of Israel, south of Jerusalem.  It is an area steeped in history, with tremendous historical importance to Judaism, Christianity, and (to a somewhat lesser extent) Islam.  In this video, contributor Rea Burla treats us to spectacular tour of this amazing desert, which includes bird's eye views of St. George’s Monastery in the Wadi Qelt valley, the tomb of Moses, the ancient fortress of Masada (a UNESCO World Heritage site), the Dead Sea, and more.

Acre: Ancient Mediterranean City


Acre, Israel

Ruslan Pau...

Contributor Ruslan Paul put together this remarkable video of Acre (Acco), an ancient city on Israel's Mediterranean coastline, between Tel Aviv and Haifa.  Sitting on a site which dates to 3000 BC, the city became a key Christian stronghold during the Third Crusade.  In 1291, the city was besieged by forces under control of the Mamluk Sulatanate; despite a desperate last stand by the Knights Templar, it fell after about a month.  The recapture of Acre is considered one of the most consequential events of the Medieval Period.    

Negev Desert: Big Crater


Daylight: Hike on "Big Crater" in the Negev Desert

Ori Feldma...

The desert areas of southern Israel are home to some of the world's most unusual rock formations.  One of these is the HaMakhtesh HaGadol ("Big Crater") in the Negev Desert, near the southern extent of the country.  It's actually not a volcanic crater but rather a makhtesh, a landform which is caused by unusual erosion patterns and which is almost unknown outside of southern Israel and the Sinai Peninsula.  In this video, Ori Feldman used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create an epic aerial video of a hike on this amazing formation.

Nazareth: Northern Israel


Nazareth - 4K Aerial Footage


Nazareth is the largest city in the interior of northern Israel.  Culturally, it is quite distinct from most other Israeli cities: it's roughly 2/3 Muslim and 1/3 Christian, with only a negligible Jewish population.  The city is mentioned frequently in the New Testament as a place where Jesus lived for a time, and as a result Nazareth receives thousands of Christians who visit on pilgrammages every year.  In this video, you'll be able to check out this ancient town from a bird's eye perspective.

Ashdod: City of Southern Israel


Phantom 4 Above Israel | Ashdod | Cinematic

Phantom 4 ...

Ashdod is the sixth largest city in Israel.  It's situated roughly a half hour drive south of Tel Aviv, a similar distance north of Ashkelon, and roughly twice that distance west of the capital city of Jerusalem.  Dating to the Bronze Age, there are several references to the city in the Bible's Old Testament.  Today, it's known primarily for its port, which is the country's largest by shipping volume.  Contributor Phantom 4 Israel used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to create this mini-aerial tour of this important port city.  

Mt. Arbel, Lower Galilee


Mount Arbel


Mount Arbel is a mountain in the Lower Galilee region of northern Israel.  It's peak is 180 meters, or about 600 ft. above sea level but with a base well below sea level its prominence is about double that.  The mountain offers spectacular views of the Sea of Galilee as well as the Golan Heights, the territory captured by Israel from Syria during the Six Day War of 1967 and subsequently annexed.  You can see this beautiful and historic mountain from above in this drone video by dronturcom.  

Ancient Caesarea




Check out this drone video of Caesarea (Césarée), a historic town in north-central Israel.  The inheritor of much of the ancient city of Caesarea, it's located about halfway up the Mediterranean coast between Tel Aviv and Haifa, respectively.  The ancient city was built by the Roman strap king Herod the Great in the first century BC.  Much of the city's land area came under ownership by the Rothschild family during the British Mandate and was turned over to the new State of Israel shortly after independence.  

Arsuf and the Apollonia Fortress

Iyad M. sw...

Check out this amazing drone video from the southern tip of Israel, courtesy of content creator and pilot lyad M. swaed. The Eilat Mountains are a chain which covers a portion of the Negev Desert.  The mountains derive their name from their proximity to Eilat, the ancient port town (now also resort town) on the Red Sea.  The highest peak in the mountains is Mount Hezekiah; it rises to an altitude of just under 900 meters (2.95k ft.) above sea level.  Mount Solomon (also visible) is the second highest peak.  

West Bank: Wadi Perat


Wadi Perat (Wadi Qelt), Israel

Ruslan Pau...

Top contributor and drone pilot Ruslan Paul created this beautiful aerial view of the Wadi Perat (Wadi Qelt) west of Jerusalem, Israel, in the West Bank territory.  It's essentially a series of calleys and ravines created by a stream which originates in Jerusalem and empties into the Jordan River in nearby Jericho.  The area, which was part of Jordan until the Six Day War of 1967, was an important place during the time of Roman occupation and was later the site of some of the first Christian monasteries.

Salt Mining Camp in the Judean Desert


Sodom: Abandoned Salt Mining Camp in Israel


Salt is not only one of the world's most basic commodities, it was also amongst the first to be intensively mined.  In earlier times it was essential for food preservation, and access to steady supply was crucial to obtaining adequate nutrition.  In this video, contributor and drone pilot BK Spector flew a drone over an ancient salt mine in Israel.  It's part of Mt. Sodom, a mountain in Israel's Judean Desert.  The mountain is 80% salt by composition, and was a key source of the commodity in Biblical times.

Negev Desert: HaMakhtesh HaKatan


HaMakhtesh HaKatan - The small crater

Omer Tsur ...

Among the wonders of southern Israel are its makhtesh, a type of geological formation which is thought to be unique to the Negev Desert here.  Makhtesh are essentially valleys surrounded by very steep rock walls, which are formed by a combination of the very unusual rock composition and erosion patterns of the area.  There are three named instances of this phenomenon in the Negev.  In this drone video by content creator and pilot AirWorks, you'll get a bird's eye view of HaMakhtesh HaKatan, the smallest of the three.

Mt. Hermon: Israel's Highest Point

Omer Tsur ...

Check out this fantastic drone video from Mt. Hermon in northern Israel, compliments of AirVuz contributor Omer Tsur - AirWorks.  The mountain, which forms the southern extent of the Anti-Lebanon Mountains, actually sits in three countries - Israel, Lebanon, and Syria.  The mountain's summit actually lies in Syria, where it constitutes the country's highest point.  On the Israeli side, its highest point is about 2.05k meters above sea level or around 6.7k ft, making it Israel's highest point as well.   

Jaffa, Masada, Dead Sea




Contributor phildrone created this beautiful video showing some of the highlights of the Holy Land of Israel.  The video opens with a spectacular shot that sums up the blend of old and new that Israel represents: the ancient port city of Jaffa on the Mediterranean is in the foreground, with the skyline of the ultramodern commercial capital Tel Aviv in the background.   After seeing more of Jaffa, the video will take you to southern Israel for some amazing shots of the fortress Masada, the Dead Sea, and more.

Apollonia is a fortress town on Israel's Mediterranean coastline,  a few minutes south of the better-known town of Caesarea.  While the settlement dates to 500 BC, it became a walled city during the initial period of Muslim rule which began in the 7th century.  The town fell to Christian forces in the Second Crusade, but was returned to Muslim control again in 1265 when it fell to a siege of the Mamluks.  After the latter siege, the town's inhabitants were killed or sold into slavery, and it never fully recovered.

The Harvest in Israel


Shavuot - Feast of Weeks

Omer Tsur ...

Among the wonders of modern Israel is its agricultural sector: this mostly arid land, with a small farm workforce, is able to supply 95% of the food needs of its 7+ million population.   It's been done with a combination of some of the world's most advanced irrigation techniques and a highly mechanized approach to farming.  In this drone video by contributor AirWorks, you'll get a bird's eye view of the Israeli wheat harvest during the Shevuot holiday, which has roots in part as a harvest festival.  

Dead Sea Vacation


vacation to the DEAD SEA [4K]


See the Dead Sea in southern Israel from above in this drone video. Opening with a dronie, pilot haron5544 quickly transitions to a shot highlighting the famous Dead Sea tree. The tree has left many wondering how something could grow in the uninhabitable area, however it was supposedly placed there by a local artist who paddle boards out to it every day to care for it. He’ll then head to the historic surrounding cliffside villages, ending with a top-down shot of the Sea, home to the earth's lowest elevation.  

Ancient Jaffa


The Old City of Jaffa


Jaffa is a very old port city situated to the south of the very new city of Tel Aviv, Israel. Historic Jaffa is known for its part in many biblical stories as well as its famous oranges. First mentioned in an ancient Egyptian letter, scholars believe the port was built around 1800 BC and possibly considerably earlier. Seen in this aerial video by content creator and drone pilot MIAPVIDEOS, the ancient city walls blend seamlessly with the much more modern city of Tel Aviv, which was founded comparatively recently, in 1909.  

Lower Galilee: Church of the Transfiguration


Church of the Transfiguration

Omer Tsur ...

Here's a nice aerial view of a famous church in northern Israel, compliments of contributor AirWorks.  It's the Church of the Transfiguration, and it's located on Mt. Tabor in the Lower Galilee region.  The current structure was built in the 1920's, on the site of a Byzantine church from the Antiquity and a later Crusader church built during the Middle Ages.  The significance of the site is, literally, Biblical: it's believed to be the location of the Transfiguration of Christ described in the Gospels.  

Nabi Musa: Tomb of Moses


Nabi Musa


Top contributor Rea_Burla created this aerial video of Nabi Musa, an important religious and historical site on the West Bank region between Israel and Jordan.  It's called Nabi Musa, and it's of considerable significance in the religions of Islm, Christianity, and Judaism.  Its importance to all three religions stems from a central historical significance: it's believed to be the place where Moses was buried.  It lies astride the Jerusalem-Jericho road, traditionally one of the most important Muslim pilgrimage routes.   

Negev Desert: Mt. Zin


Sunrise in Mount Zin

Ori Feldma...

Top AirVuz contributor Ori Feldman brings us this excellent sunrise view of a famous spot in the desert of southern Israel.  It's called Mt. Zin, and it's located in the Negev Desert, in the downward-pointed arrow which southern Israel resembles on a map.  It is thought by some biblical scholars that the mountain is the Mt. Hor referenced in the Bible, the place where the high priest Aaron was buried during the Jews' years of wandering in the desert.  The mountain has an elevation of about 900 ft. above sea level or around 275 m.  

Netanya: On the Sharon Plain


DJI Mavic 2 pro City Flight


Netanya, Israel is one of the main cities between Tel Aviv and Haifa.  It lies on the coastal Sharon Plain, a flatland area which extends east from the Mediterranean Sea to the Samarian Hills.  With a population of a bit over 200k, Netanya was the seventh-largest city in Israel as of 2019.  With 14 km (just under 9 mi.) of beaches, the city is one of the more popular beach destinations in Israel.  In this aerial video by contributor and drone pilot benny_rv, you'll get a nighttime aerial view of Netanya.

Drone Tour of the Dead Sea


Israel, Dead Sea. AERIAL DRONE VIDEO in 4K

Ruslan Pau...

Israel's Dead Sea is one of the most famous sites in this small Middle Eastern Nation.  Situated in the Judean Desert south of Jerusalem, it is the lowest point on the surface of the earth.  With a third of its liquid weight consisting of salt, it’s over 8x times saltier than the ocean and is devoid of life (hence its name).  Covering about 600 square km (about 234 square mi.), it's shrunk by about 40% over the last century.   You can see the famous body of water from above in this excellent drone video by top contributor Ruslan Paul.

Sinkholes of the Dead Sea


Dead Sea Sinkholes

Iyad M. sw...

The Dead Sea, which is part of the natural boundary between Israel and Jordan, is steadily receding due to various environmental pressures.  As the area covered by its famously salty and otherwise mineral-rich water shrinks, fresh groundwater dissolves the underground salt deposits left behind, creating giant sinkholes.  As seen in this excellent drone video by AirVuz contributor and pilot Ilyad M swaed, these sinkholes, which can be over 80 ft. (around 25 m) deep and up to 130 ft. (40 m) across.
