To understand why Iceland has become such a magnet for first person view (FPV) drone pilots, check out this highly cinematic piece by top contributor Jturner.  A DVOW Finalist as well as a pick for the FPV Pilots to Watch list, the video opens with a flyover of the Fagradalsfjall volcano on the Reykjanes Peninsula near Reykjavikm which began erupting in March of 2021.  Then you'll head to a glacier, one of the icesheets which covers much of the surface of the island.  Other highlights include some epic waterfall and canyon dives.

Award-winning content creator and drone pilot snorrithor brings us this stunning aerial view of a volcanic eruption on the North Atlantic island nation of Iceland.   In mid-march, the Geldingadalur region began emitting molten rock.  It was believed to be the first such geological activity on the Reykjanes Peninsula (which extends off of the southwestern corner of the island) in 800 years.  Scientists believe that this may portend the long-anticipated beginning of a period of increased geological activity in this part of the island.  

Reykjavik: Iceland's Capital

Reykjavik, Iceland! Mavik Air!

Breath of ...

Iceland's largest city and capital is Reykjavik, which lies in the southwestern part of the island.  It is a new city by European standards, founded in 1786.  The city is full of Scandinavian charm, and is also known as as a starting point for drives around Iceland's Ring Road, the national highway which is the main route to access most of Iceland's top sights.  Contributor BreathofIceland, one of Iceland's top drone pilots, used a DJI Mavic Air drone to create this amazing aerial tour of Iceland's capital city.

Top AirVuz contributor FreD ./. brings us this stunning drone video of one of the most iconic sites of Iceland: the abandoned wreck of a US Navy DC-3 airplane.  In 1973, the plane ran out of fuel and crashed on Sólheimasandur, a black sand beach on the island's southern coast.  While the plane's crew survived the ordeal, the wreckage was left in place.  It's not the easiest place to reach (or even find) - there are no nearby roads, and even the ruggedest 4WD vehicles can get stuck in the sand.

Mývatn, Iceland

Lake Mývatn is one of the natural wonders of Iceland.  Located in the northern part of the island, the lake was created by a massive lava eruption about 2,300 years ago.  Seen here in this drone video by top AirVuz contributor FreD ./., the lake covers about 14 square mi. (about 37 square km) and has a maximum depth of only about 15 ft. (around 4-5 m).  Surrounded by lava pillars and other geological phenomena, the lake is home to a large number of birds (including 15 species of ducks) and other flora and fauna.

ICELAND ICE AND FIRE

boromdole...

Although Iceland has become an increasingly popular tourist destination, the majority of its most-visited sites are along its southern and eastern coastlines.  In this magnificent drone video by boromdole, you'll be treated to aerial views of a much less visited corner of the island: the Westfjords, a giant peninsula which extends off of the northwestern part of the island.  The video even includes footage of even more remote Hornstrandir, a sub-peninsula which runs off the northern side of the Westfjords.

Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon

FreD ./....

Top AirVuz contributor FreD ./. brings us this magnificent drone video of Iceland's famous Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon.  Located in the southern part of the island, this canyon was formed by glaciation; the Fjaðrá River, which runs through its bottom, did not actually create it.  The 1.2 mi. long (two km) gorge has a maximum depth of about 330 ft. (100 m). Easily accessible from Iceland's Ring Road, Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon was (famously) used to film a wildly popular music video by pop singer Justin Bieber.

Iceland's Westfjords is a giant and remote peninsula off the island's northwestern coast.  It's cactus-like shape makes for dozens of fjords that take up almost its entire coastline.  Covering an enormous 22k+ square km or around 8.6k square its, its land area is comparable to the UK region of Wales - yet its population is a bit over 7k, roughly 2/3 of whom live in a single town (Ísafjörður).  Check out this desolate but beautiful region from above in this drone video by boromdole.

Top contributor FreD ./. brings us this magnificent drone video from the Vestmann Islands in Iceland.  Also known as the Vestmannaeyjar, this is a small archipelago which lies off Iceland's southern coast in the North Atlantic Ocean.  It consists of 15 (mostly uninhabited) islands and a somewhat larger number of sea stacks.  The islands are infants in geological terms, having been formed by volcanic eruptions in the last 10,000-12,000 years.  Most of the island's roughly 4,000 inhabitants live on Heimaey, the largest in the archipelago.  

Thórsmörk Region, Southern Iceland

For a second upload to AirVuz, new contributor brendanbeale brings us this stunning drone video of a mountainous region in Iceland called Thórsmörk.  Located near the southern end of the island, Thórsmörk is a ridge and the surrounding area which separates the Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull volcanoes (both of which are capped by glaciers).  A relatively short drive from Reykjavik, Thórsmörk is popular with hikers, and generally features warmer temperatures than the surrounding areas by virtue of being a semi-protected valley.  

Reykjanes Geyser Fields

Visitors to Iceland wanting to see its geological wonders needn't go far: the giant mud geysers of Gunnuhver are just a few km/miles from the country's principal international airport.   Seen here in this outstanding drone video by Jasonkmclean, Iceland's largest geyser field is located near the western tip of Reykjanes, at peninsula which extends west of Reykjavik.  At about the :10 mark, there's a great shot of Reykjanes Lighthouse, which lies in the middle of the field and is Iceland's oldest lighthouse.

Top contributor Eaglewood Pictures does it again with this stunning piece from Iceland.  The video was shot in some of the more remote spots on this North Atlantic island, well away from the increasingly familiar scenes along the coastal ring road.  Much of the footage is from the Westfjords, the oddly shaped peninsula which juts off the island's northwestern coast and which itself consists of many sub-peninsulas.   Some of the most amazing footage is around Hornstrandir, the northernmost of the Westfjords peninsulas.  

Iceland's Abundant Waterfalls

The eruption of the Iceland's Fagradalsfjall volcano at Geldingadalir in March of 2021 captured attention around the world, and geologists indicated that this event likely marked the start of what could be a long period of volcanic activity on the Reykjanes Peninsula (in the southwestern part of the country) following centuries of little activity.  These predictions appeared to be confirmed with the nearby Meradalir eruption in August, 2022.  Top AirVuz contributor brendanbeale was there to record the scene with this excellent drone video.
