Did you ever stop to think about the particulars of the James Bond locations in the films? I find it totally amazing that 2012 is the 50th anniversary of James Bond. It is certainly the longest running film franchise, and it shows no signs of fading. As well as the high octane chases, beautiful women, murder and mayhem, for me, the James Bond filming locations are also part of the movies’ appeal. Not only does 007 get to stay in the very best 5-star hotels, travel by private jet, eat in the finest restaurants, and wear the best clothes from the finest tailors, but the filming locations are simply stunning. If you want to follow in the footsteps of the iconic spy, enjoy some of the luxury, and feel like a Bond Girl, here are 7 Stunning James Bond Locations.
1. Jokulsarlon, Iceland
The places associated with James Bond aren’t always the streets of iconic cities and stunning tropical beaches. Ice and snow are very often prominent features. One of the most beautiful James Bond locations is Jokulsarlon in the north of Iceland. Translated from Icelandic, the name means glacial river lagoon – pretty apt! The location was used for the icebergs in A View to a Kill and then again in Die Another Day, for that amazing car chase. If you visit in summer (May-September), you can take boat trips out onto the unfrozen water, which is 600m deep.
