Iceland From Above: Incredible Drone Video That Will Give You Instant Wanderlust

Thinking about traveling to Iceland?

This video will make you want to pack your bags immediately. Over a two week period in early June, we captured aerial footage using our drone as we drove all over the country. Justin and I traveled around the Ring Road – the main highway in Iceland. We also ventured off the Ring Road for a couple of days to the Westfjords and West Iceland.

This incredible Iceland drone video illustrates why Iceland is such a magical destination. From sweeping mountain vistas to desolate panoramas that look like Mars, Iceland is one of those dreamy locales that you’ve got to visit at least once in your lifetime. You’ll see black sand beaches, rugged fjords, and lush hills. In this video, we aim to show you exactly what it is like to visit Iceland. The scenery changes at every bend in the road.

The entire video is shot using the DJI Phantom 3 Standard drone.

Whether you drive around the island for weeks or you briefly visit on a stopover, take any opportunity to visit Iceland. If it wasn’t on your bucket list before, this Iceland drone video is guaranteed to give you instant wanderlust.
