A James Bond film wouldn't be complete without some exotic locations to provide the backdrop for the spy's antics. No Time to Die is no different, with 6 different countries providing the scenery for Daniel Craig's last appearance as 007.
But where are all the No Time to Die filming locations and how can you visit them yourself?
Keep reading to find out all the insider information about the No Time to Die locations.
No Time to Die locations around the world
Did you watch the latest James Bond movie? Can you guess where some of the scenes were filmed? Let's take a look at the stunning locations that made this film as aesthetically pleasing as it is action-packed.
Here are the No Time to Die locations in order.
1. Langvann, Norway
The first scene in the film is a flashback to the childhood home of a young Madeleine Swann. She is chased across a frozen lake which was filmed in the snowy landscapes of Langvann lake, just outside Oslo in Norway.
Fun fact: the Norwegian government was very keen to become one of the No Time to Die film locations, offering the production company big tax breaks to film in the country.
2. Spiaggia Cent'Ammari, Italy
The rocky coast of Spiaggia Cent'Ammari is where we first see an adult Madeleine Swann in the movie as she swims in the sea off the dramatic coastline.
One of the first locations for No Time to Die, the rocky, coastal spot is in the Porto de Maratea which is a 3-hour drive to the mountainside town of Matera which is where the action starts.
3. Matera, Italy
Another of the film's opening scenes is in the beautiful, historic town of Matera in the Basilicata region of southern Italy. Matera provides the backdrop for a dramatic car chase scene, as Bond drives his Aston Martin through the scenic, tiny roads of the town.
The beautiful stone town is built into the hillside and is thought to be one of the world's oldest dwellings. It wasn't always a desirable place to live though, in the 1950s the town was evacuated due to poverty and disease.
Slowly and surely, people started to move back in and restore the city, and it became one of the European Capitals of Culture in 2019. There are now beautiful hotels, exemplary dining, and tourist infrastructure to make visiting Matera a unique experience. And of course, it's one of the most memorable locations in No Time to Die.
Not to be missed on a visit to Matera are the rock churches “chose rupestri”. There are more than 150 in the Park of the Rock Churches on the other side of the Gravina River. Some of the No Time to Die cemetery scene was filmed in an area called Mugia Timone, which provides breathtaking views across the river to the stunning historic town.
If you're looking to find a hotel with a view over the city like the one in the film, you'll struggle. The balcony you see in the film was constructed solely for the movie.
How to get to Matera: From Bari, you can travel by train to Matera.
4. Gravina, Italy
A Bond film wouldn't be a Bond film without some epic stunts. Gravina in Puglia is where Daniel Craig's Bond jumps onto an aqueduct to escape, following the car chase sequence.
There is plenty to see in the historic Gravina, including the underground Gravina Sotteranea and the ruins of the ancient castle. The bridge where Bond's stunt scene happens is called the Madonna Della Stella Aqueduct and is 90 meters high. The two-tier structure dates to the 18th century and is built from local limestone.
How to get to Gravina: The easiest way is to arrive in Bari and then take a train.
5. Sapri, Italy
One of the other No Time to Die filming locations in Italy is the train station at Sapri which is about 200km south of Matera. The dramatic scene involves the break up of Madeline and Bond.
The small coastal town in Italy's southwestern region of Campania is known for its secret cove and the natural arc eroded into the cliff. The prominent geological accident is known as “Big Arch beach” in English.
6. Port Antonio, Jamaica
There are several No Time to Die Jamaica locations, but the one you see first is Port Antonio. Most of the outdoor Jamaican scenes for the film were shot in Jamaica's Port Antonio.
Bond tries to retire in his spiritual home of Jamaica but his rest in his tranquil house on the ocean is short-lived. His waterfront villa is at Frenchman's Cove and San San Beach and was built especially for the film and deconstructed afterward.
Jamaica isn't only one of the No Time to Die scene locations, but the natural beauty of the tropical island appears in many of the other Bond films. The famous Honey Ryder scene in Dr No and Live and Let Die were both shot in Jamaica.
The Caribbean island was a favorite of the Bond author Ian Fleming who spent a lot of time there. He even created his famous character and wrote many of the Bond novels while living at his villa on the Goldeneye estate. Bond fans can stay at Fleming Villa on the Goldeneye estate in Jamaica's Oracabessa Bay.
Filming restrictions meant it wasn't possible for Cuba to become one of the No Time to Die shooting locations. So the Cuban street scenes in the film were also filmed around Jamaica's Port Antonio.
7. London, UK
What would a bond film be without some scenes filmed in the UK capital, London? When he's forced out of retirement, Bond needs to return to London and to his old workplace.
Iconic landmarks that feature in the most recent film are the Ministry of Defence building in Whitehall, as well as the MI6 headquarters on the south bank of the River Thames.
Hammersmith bridge also features in the movie as does the Mall, a grand long road that leads up to Buckingham Palace.
Pinewood studios just outside London was where most of the non on locations scenes were filmed, including much of the Cuban action.
8. Atlantic Ocean Road, Norway
This 8.3km road in Norway connects the island of Averøy to the mainland and the Romsdalshalvøya peninsula while crossing an archipelago of partially inhabited islands.
The winding road makes for one of the most epic No Time to Die shooting locations. The twists and turns of the North Atlantic road provide a stunning backdrop for another of the film's thrilling car chases.
9. The Cairngorms and Loch Laggan, Scotland
Loch Laggan in Scotland also provides some of the backdrops for the epic car chase which was mostly filmed in Norway. The crash and the helicopter chase were both filmed on location in Scotland.
It makes sense that James Bond returns to Scotland as it is the place of his childhood home and features in the previous film Skyfall.
The Cairngorms park where much of the Scottish footage was shot is the UK's largest national park and a great spot to visit if you're on a Bond film location search. Not only are there snow-capped peaks and jaw-dropping landscapes, but you can visit historical landmarks, ancient castles and taste the local whiskeys as well.
10. Faroe islands
The isle of Kalsoy in the Faroe Islands offers a dramatic landscape for the culmination of the film.
Of all the filming locations, this is possibly the wildest and it provides the base for the evil Safin's lair.
Due to the remote location of the hardly populated islands, in the North Atlantic Ocean between Norway and Iceland, filming was very difficult. The lair didn't exist in real life and was added in post-production.
