The Best Drone Footage of Iceland

Come and take a look at the 'Land of Fire and Ice' from on high with this collection of incredible Icelandic drone footage. You'll see waterfalls, glaciers, and a drone flying into lava

Iceland is widely known as “The Land of Fire and Ice”. Why? Well, because it’s home to the world’s most active volcanoes and is a stage for the largest glaciers in Europe. Yes, Iceland really is a spectacular country to behold and a travel destination everyone should aim to visit at least once in their lifetime.

Even if you’ve been lucky enough to visit Iceland before though, there’s an argument that you still haven’t seen it from its best angle; in its fullest glory. Seeing the country from a bird’s eye perspective really is something else, and that’s where drones come in.

“See what happens when you fly a drone directly into an active Icelandic volcano”

The following volcano drone clip went viral last month, and it got us thinking that we should really dig around in the vaults and see what other drone footage of Iceland we could air. See what happens when you fly a drone directly into an active Icelandic volcano, or take pleasure in soaking up a beautiful aerial view of this wonderful island. The choice is up to you.

What Happens When You Fly A Drone Into An Active Volcano?

The guy with the drone, Bjorn Steinbekk, is no stranger when it comes to flying drones in Iceland. This year, he’s been filming spectacular volcanic eruptions from above with the help of his drone (you’ll have, for sure, seen his clips doing the rounds on social media).

For the big finish to his volcano filming spree, Steinbekk decided to sacrifice his pride and joy straight into the depths of a red hot volcano. Bjorn’s sacrifice to the Volcano Gods will never be forgotten.

Rest in fire, little drone.

Flying Through Lava

You’ve just managed to cool off from the first volcano drone video, so we thought we’d get you heated up again with another one. Back in March, thousands of earthquakes on the peninsula of Reykjanes opened up the ground with lava managing to reach the surface. Luckily for us, drone footage of the incident was captured by adventurer Stefan Forster.
