Separating the Iberian Peninsula from the rest of Europe, a 491-kilometer (305 mile) stretch of mountains is known as the Pyrenees. The range stretches between Spain and France, rising over 3,400 meters (11,154 feet) making it a key destination for ski resorts and avid climbers and home to national parks. Pilot vasiliz lives in the mountains and is taking us through them via ground camera, camera drone, and FPV racing drone in this 4K video.

Sights of the French Pyrenees


Treasures of the Pyrenees: Montsegur, Devil's Bridge, and Roquefixade

Amaury Des...

Ariege is a section of the Occitanie region in the southern part of France, near the border with Spain.  It is part of the mountainous Pyrennes region which straddles the two countries.  In this video, contributor Amaury Descours treats us to aerial views of some of the spectacular sites of the French Pyrennes, including Montsegur, Devil’s Bridge, and Roquefixade.  While the peaks of the Pyrenees are not as tall as the Alps, the lack for nothing in terms of sheer beauty and offer some of the best hiking spots in Europe.

Drone Views of the Spanish Pyrenees

Karl Veca...

The Pyrenees Mountains, by which the Iberian Peninsula attaches to the rest of mainland Europe, are not the Alps.  With a maximum altitude of about 3.4k meters above sea level (around 11.1k ft), even the highest peaks of this range are generally accessible by (physically fit) hikers.  Even in the snow, as top AirVuz contributor and pilot 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.  

Freeriding in the Pyrenees

The Pyrenees Mountains, which act as the natural boundary between France and Spain, contain some amazing ski spots.  Though not as tall as the Alps, they feature incredible groomed runs and freeriding opportunities.  Case in point is this drone video from AirVuz contributor and drone pilot WildWorld.  Shot with a DJI Mavic Pro drone and a GoPro ground camera, the video captures some epic freeride skiing in Vallnord, a resort in the tiny country of Andorra which sits between France and Spain.

France's Néouvielle National Nature Reserve


A Journey through France's Pyrenees Mountains


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.

Vallter: Fabled Spanish Ski Resort




Contributor and pilot pepinair tried out his new DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone and created this beautiful summertime (aerial) view of a well known ski resort in Spain's Catalonia region.  Vallter 2000 is in Gerona, the northeasternmost of the four Catalan provinces.  It's in the valley of the Ter River, in the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains.  The video makes great use of the M2P's boomerang and timelapse functions to capture this beautiful area of the Iberian Peninsula and one of its most popular ski areas.

Drone Views of Andorra

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. 

France's Pic du Midi Observatory


Pic du Midi - France

Top AirVuz contributor and pilot Freeway Prod brings us this epic drone video of the famous Pic du Midi Observatory in southern France.  The observatory sits atop a mountain of the same name, a peak in the Pyrenees Mountains which has a summit elevation of about 2.9k meters above sea level (about 9.4k ft.).  Completed in 1908, Pic du Midi is generally considered to be one of the top observatories in Europe.  Freeway Prod's video provides stunning aerial views of this spectacular mountaintop site.

Imagoo created this stunning drone videos of the Pyrenees Mountains in Southern France.  The area filmed is the Pyrénées-Orientales, a department which occupies the very southern tip of mainland France.  Part of the official region of Occitanie, it adjoins the Catalonia region of northeastern Spain.  As its name suggests, the Pyrénées-Orientales Department is covered by the Pyrénées Mountains and their foothills.  As you'll see, the area features marvelous mountain views as well as some epic bird's eye shots of the Mediterranean Sea.  

Monte Perdido: #3 Pyrenees Peak


Ordesa Monte Perdido


Contributor Jonatan_Joy created this beautiful drone video of one of the highest peaks in the Pyrenees Mountains.  Monte Perdido is part of the national park of the same name in the province of Huesca, in the region of Aragon.  With a peak elevation of 3.35k meters (just over 11k ft.), it's the third highest mountain in the entire Pyrenees system.  While the mountain's peak is very close to the French border, access to it from France is very difficult due to the presence of some steep intervening mountains.

Hiking in the French Pyrenees


A Beautiful Hike in the South of France


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 (the highest peak of the Alps), they are stunningly beautiful, perhaps all the more so for being less well known than the taller mountains to their northeast. In this piece, top AirVuz contributor and drone pilot LeVoyagedesKoumoul captures the graceful beauty of these mountains which separate France from Spain.  

Pedraforca: Pre-Pyrenees Peak




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.  

Cerdanya, Spanish Pyrenees


Hispadrone - Spring in Cerdanya #DJI #4K


While most people associate Spain's Catalonia with Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea, the region is also blessed with stunning mountain scenery.  Catalonia is partially covered by the Pyrenees, the great range that separates Spain from France.  Other parts are covered by a line of foothills which run parallel to the Mediterranean coastline.  Contributor Hispadrone created this epic aerial video of Cerdanya, a Catalan sub-region that sits next to the tiny independent Pyrenees country Andorra.

Contributor Imagoo created this beautiful drone video of Les Corbières, a small mountain range in southwestern France.  The mountains are essentially foothills of the Pyrenees, which form the border between France and Spain.  The highest peak in the Les Corbières range has an elevation of just over 1.2k meters (just over 4k ft.) above sea level.  In contrast to the extensive foothills on the southern (Spanish) side of the Pyrenees, these are the only foothill mountains on the French side.

Between the black and white filters, the mirrored imaging effects, and smooth soaring you really will think you're in an imaginary land or walking on the moon when you watch this first-person view (FPV) mountain surfing video from the Pyrenees. This long-range flight by vasiliz rips down the mountainside and through the snow, using editing tricks like reverse, speed, and duplicity to his full advantage. It's an impressive piece that landed mini quad pilot vasiliz on our AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in December of 2018.
