Our good friends at Flight Network have released their World’s Ultimate Travel List, and to celebrate we have pulled together the very best top locations as captured in beautiful 4K drone footage on Youtube! Enjoy and share.
1. African Safari
Visit African countries such as Gambia, Kenya, and Tanzania to experience and capture footage of the majestic animals that roam the plains and wetlands of the African wilderness – wildebeest, lions, elephants, giraffes, hippos and more.
It may be one of the world’s most remote places but there’s no reason it shouldn’t be on any adventurer’s travel list. Antarctica is virtually uninhabited, save some whales, seals and over a million penguins, and features striking glacier walls, icebergs and crevasses, captured here in high definition 4K drone video.
3. The Northern Lights
4. Machu Picchu
Well, actually we are going to extend this one to all of Peru. This incredible drone reel captures the beauty of this stunning country in all it’s World Heritage-listed spendour. From the mountain top ruins of Machu Picchu to Peru’s great rivers and sand dunes, peaks and lakes – it’s definitely one place you must include on your list!
5. The Galapagos Islands
This volcanic archipelago located 1,000km off the coast of Ecuador is the home to many unique animal species and offers very special aerial opportunities including Darwin’s Arch, named of course after the explorer who formed his theory of evolution based on the endemic wildlife of the Galapagos.
6. Paris, France
Who couldn’t resist visiting the City of Love – Paris, the capital of France. This drone reel captures the romance of this heart-warming city perfectly – the Eiffel Tower, the Arch de Triomphe, the river Seine – the list of sights is too many for here!
7. The Maldives
This tropical oasis in the Indian Ocean is famed for its atolls, lagoons and coral reefs. Capture the stunning sunrises and sunsets, jewel-like isles and glistening azure seas.
8. Rwanda, Africa
Rwanda, known for the Volcanoes National Park which is the habitat of those shy primates, the mountain gorillas. A must-see, this drone video footage showcases its green, mountainous landscape and wide, salubrious rivers.
We’e already shared on drone video of Iceland’s amazing Northern Lights, but this Nordic island nation is so much more than that! Capture Iceland’s picturesque capital, Reykjavik and then to Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks to see massive protected glaciers.
10. The Greek Islands
These glittering jewels in the Aegean and Ionian seas are an absolute must, with some of our favourites including Santorini, Corfu and Mallorca. It’s honestly too hard to cover them all in one drone video so we have chosen “the Greek Bahamas” to share: Lichadonisia.
So there you have it, ten of the best locations by drone in glorious 4K resolution. Flight Network’s Ultimate Bucket List can be viewed in full here!
It must be noted, current drone laws in some countries may require permits for flight or may even not allow the use of drones. If you do intend on travelling with your drone to other countries, we advise that you best check their drone import and usage laws before getting there, lest your drone be confiscated!
