While Paris is without doubt one of the world's greatest cities, the population living within its actual city limits is actually quite modest - only about 2.1 million as of 2019.  What puts Paris in the front rank of the world's cities is the enormous population of the metropolitan area - over 12 million in the Île-de-France region of which it is the center.  In this drone video by top contributor Etienne Lehuédé, you'll get an aerial glimpse of this vast suburban sea, home to 10 million souls.

Portugal: Castle of Obidos


Castle of Óbidos, Portugal


Óbidos Castle is one of Portugal's most famous.  The castle is situated in a city of the same name in the Leira district in the country's Centro region.  The great structure was built in the 12th century on the site of an old Roman fort, following the Reconquista of Portugal by Christian forces.  In 1951, the castle and grounds were designated as a national monument and restored with government funds.  You can see this famous castle from above in this drone video, compliments of Pedrodrone4k.

Francisco ...

Contributor Francisco Rodriguez created this amazing drone video of the surfing scene at Praia Grande Beach, one of Portugal's most famous beaches.  It's located in the Sintra province of the Greater Lisbon region, just a bit west-northwest of the capital city.  It's part of the area sometimes known as the Portuguese Riviera, a stretch of Atlantic coastline that includes other famed beaches such as Cabo de Roca and Cascais, which are more popular with swimmers (as opposed to surfers) and lie to its south.  

Portugal: Surfing


Atlantic Moods


Europe's best surfing is found in areas of the Portuguese and French coasts facing the Atlantic Ocean.  While a wetsuit is generally required, the surfing action is top-notch.  Contributor Atlantic Drones traveled to Hossegor in southwestern France and Nazare on the Portuguese coast to film some of these surfing spots.  Using a combination of gimbal stabilized camera drones and FPV drones he created this epic video showing the best of the European surfing scene.

Porto (Oporto) is Portugal's second city after the capital Lisbon.  It's the most important city in the country's norte region.  It is the city after which port wine is named, and it remains the most important source for that libation.  The city dates to the Antiquity.  Culturally it is at least as significant as Lisbon if not more so, and the entire core city is a UNESCO World Heritage site.  In this stunning video, Sprintz gives us a bird's eye view at this city which is located in an estuary of the Douro River.

Portugal: Madeira


Exploring Madeira


Contributor KasperReisner created this amazing drone video of the Portuguese island of Madeira.  Actually a main island plus a small group of islands, it lies almost due west from the Moroccan city of Marakkesh.  Its volcanic origins and rare fauna and flora have turned it into a magnet for outdoor-seeking tourists looking for somewhat off-the-beaten-path destinations.  Enjoy the aerial views of the magnificent coastlines and lush green interior of this volcanic wonder in the Atlantic Ocean!

Shot in the winter on the Mavic 2 Pro by newcastlemale, it is easy to see why it is described as both desolate and beautiful. West of Loch Rannoch in Scotland, the area is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation that is notable for its wildlife.  Among other distinctions, Rannoch Moor is the home of the Rannoch Rush, a rare flower species.

Glenfinnan Viaduct - no trains to Hogwarts today - Dji Mavic Pro - Skydronauts.uk


For nearly 20 years, Scotland's Glenfinnan Viaduct has been indelibly associated with the Harry Potter movie series, the most successful in the history of cinema.  The bridge which carried the Hogwarts Express has turned this small town in the Scottish Highlands into a major tourist destination.  Skydronauts used a drone to give us a beautiful look at this landmark, which was constructed at the turn of the 20th century and was considered a major infrastructure investment in the Highlands.  



Albacross ...

The Scottish town of Glenfinnan was famous long before its viaduct became known as the Harry Potter Bridge.  That's because it was the scene of the opening of the Jacobite Uprising, the attempt by the Stuart family and its Highland clan allies to depose the Crown.  In August, 1745, he stood on the shore of Loch Shiel and raised the Royal Standard.  Both the monument constructed to commemorate this historic event, as well as the viaduct, are on full display in this drone video by Albacross Imaging.


Buachaille Etive Mòr

Albacross ...

While the James Bond movie series has always had a Scottish connection, Skyfall (2012, #25 in the series) went much further by making Scotland a "co-star".  One of the more iconic scenes in the movie, involving 007 (played by Dan Craig) driving his Aston Martin, was shot near Buachaille Etive Mor, a mountain at the head of the Glen Etive in the Scottish Highlands.  Contributor and pilot Albacross Imaging brings us this beautiful drone video of the stunning mountain, one of Scotland's more recognizable spots.


Ben Nevis Scotland


In this short drone video, you'll get a nice look at Scotland's Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the United Kingdom.  It's situated at the western end of the Grampian Mountains, the middle of the three main mountain range which run on generally east-west axes across the region.  Ben Nevis has a peak elevation of about 1.35k meters (around 4.4k ft.) above sea level.  Its steep cliffs make it one of the most popular spots for rock climbing in the British Isles, as well as for hiking and other outdoor activities.

Moors are a type of wetland which can occur both in the upland and lowland areas of Scotland.  In this video by contributor and drone pilot LKDWN, you'll get a drone's eye view of Rannoch Moor, one of Scotland's famous moorlands.  It is situated to the west of Loch Rannoch in Perth & Kinross, one of the Scottish council areas in the central part of the country.  Like many wetlands, the area is prized in part for its wildlife.  Famously, the moor is the sole natural habitat for the Rannoch-rush flowering plant.


Bidean nam Bian, Glencoe, Scotland


Mountain Surfing is a term of art in the world of first person view (FPV) drone piloting - it basically means flying a racing drone over mountain ridges and down slopes and (of course) capturing it in HD video.  In this video, contributor and FPV pilot ARI3S FPV takes on one of the highest peaks in the Scottish Highlands: Bidean nam Bian.  With a peak elevation of 1.15k meters (about 3.8k ft.), it's the highest peak in County Argyll in the western Highlands. It's located just south of the town of Glen Coe.
