12 James Bond locations to visit on a superyacht

12 James Bond locations to visit on a superyacht

Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland – Die Another Day

As well as the fast cars, intense action scenes and beautiful women, the James Bond movies are also famous for being filmed in some of the world’s most glamorous locations. From white sand beaches to dramatic cityscapes, the James Bond series has featured some iconic scenery. Here we reveal ten iconic destinations to visit by superyacht.

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 Vatnajökull National Park is considered the largest in Europe, stretching in its’ entirety over a distance of 13,600km – alone it makes up 14% of Iceland. Lagoons, waterfalls, glaciers and even volcanoes contribute to the impressive natural scenery of the park. 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: *The striking views and geological wonders make this park a necessary trip for anyone sailing the Nordic waters. Although it is far away from the port in Reykjavik, tours, which operate 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.
