Glaciers and Icebergs from Above

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Glaciers and icebergs are some of the world's largest natural wonders and drone pilots have been traveling to the ends of the earth to capture them from the sky. AirVuz created this video compilation of the best glacier and iceberg drone footage, including (1) Ilulissat icefjord in Greenland, a massive group of icebergs that have calved off the massive Greenland ice sheet; (2) polar bears and other wildlife roaming the arctic icebergs in Northern Canada; and (3) the Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon in Iceland.
