Filming Locations in Norway
Norway contains a variety of scenery you could get in one country from the snowy mountain cliffs of Preikestolen to the modern buildings of an Oslo Opera House. However, that’s not all Norway has to offer, it still consists of unlimited landscapes that would suit any type of commercial or film production.
Oslo Opera House
Oslo is the capital city of Norway, famous for its modern architecture combined with ancient-age buildings around the city. One of Christopher Nolan’s films, “Tenet” was shot here in this particular location. It’s a scene where both Robert Pattinson and John David Washington were discussing their plan. They are actually standing on top of the Oslo Opera House.
The Atlantic Road
Remember the car chase scene with a beautiful road over the water in the last installment of Daniel Craig’s Bond movie, “No Time to Die.” This particular road appeared in that scene. The Atlantic Road is famous among all the tourists and producers around the world. It’s one of the destinations that you have to visit in Norway with your film production.
Stadlandet is a peninsula in the western part of Norway, consisting of strong winds with rocky beaches and mountains. An epic sci-fi movie “Dune” by Denis Villeneuve shot their last few days here in Stadlandet in replacement of the planet Caladan.
Not far from the Stadlandet, there’s a mountain village area on the shore of lake Finsevatnet called Finse. The village is also known for its long winter that covers around 8-9 months in a year. “Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back” was shot on the mountain of this village during the long winter.
Preikestolen is a steep cliff and one of the most visited natural tourist attractions in Norway. You would remember the exact spot if you’re a fan of the Mission: Impossible franchise, the sixth installment “Mission: Impossible – Fall Out ” which was shot there for the ending fight scene.
