Locations in Iceland

Iceland offers cinematic opportunities that cannot be found anywhere else. The country has an incredibly varied nature and can stand in for other countries which has made Iceland
Hollywood’s new favourite playground.

Black sands, imposing glaciers and snow capped mountains, otherworldly lava fields, majestic waterfalls, lakes and lagoons with floating icebergs, the stark highland interior, tundra, moors patched with blue ponds, northern lights, steam emitting red and yellow sulphur mountains are scenes of serene beauty. Iceland is popular with sci-fi and fiction as it can portray a post-apocalyptic world but is also used as a stand-in for other countries, including Japan, Norway, Greenland, Russia, Canada, USA and even Italy.

For both small and large shoots all over Iceland we provide:

– Location scouts
– Location Managers
– Permits and logistic help

Filming in Iceland is easy and permits are straightforward and in many cases not required. No permits are needed for a 1-5 person crew with a tripod in public places. When stopping traffic, filming on private land or in a private home a permit is required. Applications can be in English and locations only take a few days to clear. We can help out with applications and all necessary paperworks, should this be needed.

If you are uncertain of whether you need a filming permit or not, just drop us an email with info about your shoot and we’ll sort things out.

The Icelanders are friendly and hardworking people with a refreshing can-do spirit.

Advanced infrastructure and experienced crew make sure foreign producers can reap maximum benefit from shooting films, television programs, music videos or commercials in Iceland. The full range of professional services available includes assistance with locations, crew, equipment, casting, studios, animations, aerial filming services, VFX and post production.
