For a first upload to AirVuz, new contributor Makhorov brings us this DVOW-winning piece from the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia's Far Eastern region, between the Sea of Ohotsk and the Bering Sea. Opening with some epic shots of the peninsula's stunning coastline, most of the video was shot in the largely volcano-covered interior of the region. The video includes footage of the Klyuchevskaya Sopka, the highest Eurasian volcano with a peak elevation of about 4.75k meters above sea level (roughly 15.6k ft.). 

Vladivistok: Port of the Far East


Summer in Vladivostok


Former Drone Video Award Winner panvelvet brings us this stunning drone video from the city of Vladivostok, Russia.  Vladivostok is the second-largest city in Russia's Far East region (after Khabarovsk) and the largest coastal city.  It is situated on a body of water known as the Golden Horn Bay, which is an inlet of the Sea of Japan.  The video features phenomenal footage of the city's beaches and active windsurfing scene, some of the tiny islands which lie off the mainland, the Zolotoy Bridge, and even a partially-submerged submarine! 

Surfing in Russia's Far East


Kamchatka. The Winter Surf Challenge

Two-time DVA winner created this magnificent drone video (itself nominated for Drone Video of the Week) from the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia's Far East.  The video includes footage of the Winter Surf Challenge - yes, surfing in Siberia!  It also includes footage of some of the area's spectacular natural scenery, including the Klyuchevskaya Sopka volcano, the Parantuka river, and the Vilyuchinsky Pass.  The video earned a nomination in the Extreme Sports category at the 6th Annual NYCDFF.

Rafting Chukotka's Kazachka River




Check out this amazing video from the far northeastern corner of Russia, compliments of brand-new contributor valuiskikh.  He used a combination of drone and ground camera footage to film himself rafting on the still partly frozen Kazachka River river in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, a federal subject (essentially, an oblast) of the country's Far East region.  Covering an area of 737k square km (around 285k square mi.), roughly 10% larger than continental France, the terrritory has a permanent population of about 50k.  

Rock Formation on Spokoynaya Bay


Devil's Finger Rock


Check out this beautiful drone video from Russia's Far Eastern Region, compliments of new contributor and pilot VladSavelyev.  It's a rock formation variously known as Devil's Finger and Pirate's Castle, and it's located on Spokoynaya Bay, an inlet of the Sea of Japan (itself a large inlet of the Pacific Ocean).  The bay is situated a bit to the east of Vladivostok in Primorsky Krai, the southernmost of the eleven Federal Subjects (provinces) which make up Russia's Far Eastern Federal District.  

Kamchatka and the Kurile Islands


Kamchatka and Kuril Islands by drones


Explore some of the most remote (and beautiful) parts of Russia in this excellent drone video by maxbaloo. He filmed the Kamchatka Peninsula in the country's Far East and the Kurile Islands, a chain which runs across the Sea of Ohotsk between the southern tip of Kamchatka and the Japanese island of Hokkaido. The Kuriles had been Japanse territories until 1945 but were occupied by the Soviet Union near the end of World War II and subsequently annexed. This video was a DVOW nominee in August, 2019. 

Sakhalin Island


Sakhalin: Discovery with a Land Rover


Sakhalin is a giant island in Far Eastern Russia in the Northern Pacific Ocean.  Its distance from the Russian capital in Moscow - almost 6.4k km (just under  4k mi.) is testament to the vast size of this country, which spans two continents.  In this remarkable video, contributor Vision.One used a drone to create an aerial perspective of an off-road event on Sakhalin organized by Land Rover.  The video follows a group of 4x4 vehicles as they trek across this enormous yet remote island in the far reaches of Northeast Asia.

Khabarovsk: City of the Russian Far East



Garry Stud...

Khabarovsk is one of the largest and most important cities in Russia's Far Eastern region, sometimes known as Eastern Siberia.  The city is the capital and largest city of Khabarovsk Krai, as its namesake oblast (province) is known.  Khabarovsk is situated at the confluence of the Amur and Ussuri Rivers, two of the most important waterways in Northeastern Asia.  Seen here in this drone video by Garry Studio, Khabarovsk recently overtook the city of Vladivistok (which lies to its south) to become the largest city in the Far East region.

Drone Views of Kamchatka




Enjoy these spectacular aerial views of Russia's Kamchatka region, compliments of new AirVuz contributor and drone pilot CINEMADRONE.  The great peninsula is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Ohotsk, close to the eastern extent of mainland Russia.  With two large volcanic belts containing 160 volcanoes (of which 29 are still active), it's considered the most geologically active zone of the Eurasian landmass.  The video will take you over massive volcanic craters and lakes, rushing streams and waterfalls, geysers, and more.

Zelter River, Buryatia


Russia. Buryatia.


Check out this amazing drone video of a region of eastern Russia, compliments of AirVuz content creator and pilot Vaterlou.  Buryatia is a republic within Russia's Far Eastern District, which covers the eastern half of Siberia.  It covers the region to the east and south of Lake Baikhal.  It's a vast and relatively thinly populated province, crossed by many rivers.  This video features footage of the Zelter River, which rises in Mongolia, crosses into Russia, and ultimately flows into Lake Baikhal.

AirVuz contributor and pilot iOleg brings us this fascinating drone video from the Russian Far East.  The video was filmed over the settlement of Sinegorye, which lies on the Kolyma River in the oblast (province) of Magadan.  The development of Sinegorye occurred in the 1970's in connection with a giant hydroelectricity project, following which the town was largely abandoned.  Previously, the Kolyma region was the site of some of the most notorious work camps in the Gulag, the vast penal system established during the Stalinist era.  

The Taiga of the Far East

Garry Stud...

Contributor Garry Studio worked with a Finnish forest equipment company to produce this amazing video of a timber farming operation in a taiga snow forest in Russia's Far East region.  Harvesting Russia's vast timber resource in some of the most remote regions on earth represents a considerable challenge.  As you'll see in the video, the ground conditions are as demanding as those found in surface mining areas, and (as one can imagine) it's even further complicated by the bitter cold of the endless winter months.
