A new tour in Iceland with Reykjavik Excursions is giving travellers the chance to visit the locations of the motion picture The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
The locations used in the film are known as being Iceland’s hidden gems, some unknown to most visiting the country.
During the filming of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller and the crew travelled to seven locations in Iceland, including Seydisfjordur in East Iceland; the Stykkisholmur village on the Snaefellsnes peninsula in the West; and at the coast of Gardur on Reykjanes Peninsula in Southwest Iceland.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a 2013-adaptation of James Thurber’s 1939 short story of the same name, and follows “a timid magazine reporter who lives life vicariously through daydreams, who embarks on a true-life adventure when a negative goes missing,” as stated by IMDB.com.
It was reported that Ben Stiller spent five weeks in Iceland filming what has been announced as the most extensive foreign film project in the country for 2013.
