  • Filming Hot Spot Iceland is a popular location for movie productions due to the amazing scenery found throughout the island. Many of the filming locations can now be seen through Google Street View. Photo/Google Street View

Iceland's beautiful scenery is no longer a secret to the Hollywood executives. With gorgeous landscapes and bizarre, but beautiful, volcanic and glacial structures, the backdrop of this North Atlantic country looks like the perfect movie set - only it is real! As a result, there has been a large influx of movie productions that have graced the backdrops of Iceland.

Using Google Street View, I have compiled a virtual tour of Iceland's movie production sets at the different filming locations around Iceland.
