Location

Reykjarfjörður is a narrow and picturesque fjord, nestled at the bottom of Arnarfjörður, one of the largest fjords in Iceland's Westfjords region, a remote and sparsely populated area of Iceland. It is known for its dramatic and breathtaking scenery, with towering mountains and stunning natural features. Reykjarfjörður is a relatively narrow fjord, creating a sense of wildness and seclusion. Surrounded by the imposing mountains that rise steeply on both sides, the narrow fjord is exceptional as a filming location for desolate scenes. This fjord and its surroundings are a testament to the untamed beauty of Iceland.
