Breathtaking Aerial Views of Antarctica’s Icebergs, Snow-Covered Mountains and Whales

Glaciers atop bright blue water. Snow-covered mountains always in the background. Intricate icebergs and incredible wildlife. Welcome to Antarctica.

All these wonders and more are captured in this aerial video tour shot by Stockholm-based filmmaker Kalle Ljung and his 73-year-old father on a trip to the giant continent this past winter.

Ljung and his father used a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter to film their adventure. And what an adventure it was, where from the vantage point of small lone icebergs, they witnessed humpback whales swimming and feeding.

On the video’s vimeo page, Ljung writes:

This movie was shot during our 20 days trip to Antarctica in December 2014 to January 2015.
We started from Ushuaia in Argentina and went to Port Williams in Chile, rounded Cape Horn and crossed the Drake Passage towards the Melchior Islands in Antarctica. We spent 16 days in the Antarctic and got to experience the most amazing scenery and wildlife.

Winter for many of us has finally come to an end. But a video this amazing really makes you want to travel to a cold place like Antarctica!
