With the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die, set to be released in November 2020, we look at the best and most glamorous real life James Bond movie filming locations that you can actually visit on a superyacht holiday or charter
1. Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland
In a pivotal scene of Die Another Day, Bond, played by Pierce Brosnan, speeds his Aston Martin over a glacial terrain in a thrilling car chase. The stunning Vatnajökull National Park in Iceland was used as a backdrop for these arctic racing scenes as well as hosting the structure of Graves’ Ice Palace, which melts and collapses as Bond escapes the icy region. The national park stretches over over a distance of 13,600km and features lagoons, waterfalls, glaciers and even volcanoes. The desolate beauty of this region has attracted multiple film crews to shoot here; it has recently been used as a Game of Thrones filming location.
How to visit on a superyacht: It's not close to the port of Reykjavik, but tours operating from the capital, make getting to the national park easily enough. In recent years, superyachts such as 126 metre Octopus and 119 metre Motor Yacht A have both been spotted in Reykjavik.
