I´ve never realised how many movies have been shot in Iceland. Everyone from Batman and Lara Croft to Thor and James Bond have stepped foot on Icelandic soil to make movie history. On my travels around the island I stopped in Vík, a small fishing village in the east. While driving around I stumbled on to an abandoned movie set under the mountains.
At first I wasn´t quite sure if this was an actual pre-historic town or not but the plastic feel of the things I found there and the "DO NOT ENTER - MOVIE SET" sign made it perfectly clear. I´m not sure which blockbuster was filmed there but by the looks of it, it had something to do with the medieval times. If any of you recognize the surroundings please fill me in so I can swing by the next dvd-store and pick up a copy!
