It was the first time for Iceland to take the lead role in the movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. If you’ve watched the movie, you have most likely witnessed the following jaw-dropping places in Iceland.
Found in the eastern part of Iceland, Seyðisfjörður has a rustic feel because of its old wooden houses. It currently has 668 inhabitants.
Seyðisfjörður is an ideal place for those who wanted to go camping. It is being surrounded by mountains particularly by Mt. Bjólfur in the west and Mt. Strandartindur in the east.
Grundarfjörður is located on the fjord Breiðafjörður. This is a known Iceland coastal community surrounded by picture-worthy surroundings and a clean environment. Its quiet community life, natural wonder, and historical features could have attracted the producers of the film and included the place in the movie.
One of the most photographed mountains in Iceland is Mount Kirkjufell. Found in the town of Grundarfjörður, many people who have witnessed the beauty of the mountain especially with the auroras could attest that it’s one of the most beautiful things to witness in Iceland. This, too, was noticed by the producers of the film.
Vatnajökull National Park
Another notable Icelandic place featured in the movie is the Vatnajökull National Park. One of the country’s national parks, Vatnajökull is a protected area known for its beautiful landscapes including rivers, glacial ice, and volcanoes.
These places, though highlighted in the movie, are best appreciated if you check them out yourselves; nothing beats the first hand experience.
