Airborne Scenery Videos

 

Our collection of Airborne Scenery Videos are truly one of a kind. Professionally filmed from the vantage of an aircraft we visit hidden landscapes around the world.

VIDEO TITLE: Fjords, Bergs, and Glaciers

The high arctic. Maybe you’ve dreamt of majestic fjords and their crystal blue waters. Cool arctic air, blue skies above and lone icebergs drifting with the winds and tides. Have you ever imagined how the desolate shorelines look or how the sunrise glistens off the Arctic waters. During this program we’ll view these wonders from the vantage of an aircraft. Each flight ends with a stop over into these eastern arctic communities! On the ground we’ll tour around these remote destinations and explore the sights and sounds of the local Inuit communities.

FILMING LOCATIONS:
The Pang Pass, Samford Fjord, Bylot Island, and Adams Sound are all located on Nunavut’s Baffin Island.

The Pangnirtung Pass has been the filming location for a James Bond movie and is one of the wonders of the world! We’ll have a look at unique glaciers, frozen waterfalls, and famous peaks, Asgard and Thor! The pass runs in a north-south direction leading from Pangnirtung to Qikiqtarjuaq.

Samford Fjord is the pinnacle setting for daring base jumpers from all corners of the globe. These fjords reach heights above 7000 feet and lean over the arctic waters below. We’ll get up close and personal with this magnificent corner of Baffin Island.

Bylot Island rests just to the north of Pond Inlet. The shorelines are rugged and its glaciers meet the ocean.
Lastly, Adams Sound… the delight awaits your DVD player!
