Iceland's landscapes are often used to portray the otherworldly

Movies Filmed in Iceland

Iceland's dramatic scenery and expert production crews have recently played an essential role in many major films and television programs.

The stunning, otherworldly landscapes serve as filming locations that inspire both mythical worlds and distant planets. Time can shift in Iceland with natural settings capable of representing our planet's geological birth, a medieval past, or a dystopian future! Iceland's extreme versatility has stood in for the Himalayas, the Pacific island of Iwo Jima, Siberia, northern Westeros, Greenland, various Scandinavian locations, post-apocalyptic earth, and planets in a galaxy far, far away!
