Filming at Fjallsarlon – Movies and music videos

Game of Thrones - John Snow Fjallsárlón lagoon Iceland

Filming at Fjallsarlon iceberg lagoon

Nestled within the breathtaking landscapes of Iceland you will find Fjallsarlon glacier lagoon, the natural landscape is like something out of a movie. That’s the main reason filmmakers are drawn to Fjallsarlon, the lagoon is slowly gaining popularity as a filming location for both movies and music videos.

Game of Thrones - Fjallsárlón lagoon Iceland

Game of Thrones Fjallsarlon

Early in the award-winning TV series Game of Thrones, Fjallsarlon glacier lagoon is used to represent the land North of the wall. John Snow and the Night´s Watch were sworn to guard the Wall from wildlings and white walkers who tried to breach the wall. The landscape beyond the wall is harsh, icy with vast expanses of snow-covered wilderness and rugged mountains. The filming took place during the winter season when the lagoon was completely frozen, with multiple icebergs stuck all over within the ice. Fjallsarlon with its high mountains and the steep glacier was therefore the perfect filming location for scenes from this fantasy series.

Against The Ice – Fjallsarlon

The Netflix movie Against The Ice starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was filmed partly in in Iceland. The natural cold environment around the glacial lagoons in Southeast Iceland offers realistic stage for movies that need to show a lot of snow and ice. Many scenes were shot at Fjallsárlón showing the raw unspoiled nature. The movie is based on a real story that occurred in Greenland, so filming in Iceland was ideal due to location and vastness of glaciers. Against the ice is the most recent large filming project done in the area, in Southeast Iceland.
