Faroe Islands is to become the next James Bond island. The unfathomably scenic archipelago in the heart of the North Atlantic had to be featured in a James Bond movie at some point. Now it is happening, as the upcoming James Bond film "No Time to Die" will feature scenes from the Faroe Islands.

No Time To Die Faroe Islands"No Time To Die" features footage from the Faroe Islands. Scenes have been shot on Kalsoy island. 

Shootings for the new film took place during the Faroese autumn 2019. The new James Bond film is the twenty-fifth installment in the 007 series. "No Time to Die" will stand out as the first ever James Bond movie to include sceneries from the Faroe Islands.

The crew that visited Kalsoy island had special expertise in visual effects. There were no actors involved in the filming.

The first shot from Kalsoy island filmed for the new James Bond film was made public in this trailer for No Time to Die released on 3 September 2020. The shot from the Faroe Islands can be seen at 1:23 into the trailer. The scenery is from the village Trøllanes with a large animated harbour.

James Bond fans can expect to watch unbeatable nature scenes from the Faroe Islands in the new James Bond movie. When researching the Faroe Islands as a filming location, the crew could choose many unbelievable attractions to shoot such as the sea arch Drangarnir and the Lake above the Ocean which has risen to prominence in recent years.

But the filming crew picked Kalsoy island as their location in the Faroe Islands. The island is filled with winding roads and several tunnels through unbelievable mountains. These settings served as the filming location. The unparalleled serenity in nature has most likely put the Faroe Islands on production's radar.

The film crew filmed the unspoiled scenery around Trøllanes on Kalsoy island in the northern part of the Faroe Islands. Here the team found themselves in extraordinary nature in a deep valley surrounded by high mountains. Nearby they captured the famous Kallur Lighthouse and the spiky summit Nestindar.

There will be aerial shootings from the Faroe Islands in "No Time to Die" done from a helicopter. There were lots of amazing nature options for the team to shoot in the northern part of the remote Kalsoy island.

On Kalsoy island the filming crew got both vertiginous rock cliffs, untamed shorelines, an epic valley covered in grass, and a spiky mountain top. There are four tunnels on Kalsoy island rangin from 683 metres (0.42 miles) to 2248 metres (1.39 miles).

From Kallurin on the most northernly part of the island, there is a stunning view to the west of the towering sea-stacks Risin & Kellingin as well as a waterfall on the neighbouring island Eysturoy that drops right into the North Atlantic ocean.

The weather in the Faroe Islands is unpredictable. This is also the case when visiting Faroe Islands in September. The filming crew had to wait for appropriate weather for shooting the scenic scenes on Kalsoy island after the helicopter used for filming arrived on Kalsoy island on 24 September.

Gear and equipment used for the filming on Kalsoy island was transported from the island again on 2 October and left the Faroe Islands with the ferry Norrøna departing from Tórshavn the same evening. Norrøna is the only passenger ferry to the Faroe Islands.

The helicopter used for filming also left Kalsoy island on 2 October. Later in the evening the helicopter was sailed from the Faroe Islands with the ferry Norrøna.

How the Faroese nature on Kalsoy island will be used in the movie is still unknown. The 25th James Bond film will star Daniel Craig as the chauvinist spy. When on location "No Time to Die" is titled as James Bond 25 as the crew captures the film locations and scenes that will make up the new movie.

Rumours are out that the sceneries from the Faroe Islands will be used in the end of the new movie. This will make the pristine hills on Kalsoy island the very culmination in the movie.

It is said to be likely that the bad guy in "No Time to Die" will hide or live in this northernmost part of Kalsoy island. How epic is that!

What is known for sure is that the unspoiled nature in the Faroe Islands will be the perfect settings for breathtaking pictures for the new James Bond film. "No Time to Die" was planned to be released in April 2020 but has been delayed. The film will be released on 12 November in the UK and the US launch will be on 25 November 2020. 

How do you imagine the Faroe Islands scenes will be used in the upcoming James Bond motion picture? Are there other locations that you would suggest film crews to shoot in the Faroe Islands in the future?
