The 25th instalment of the James Bond franchise is likely to include scenes from the Faroe Islands, which will undoubtedly generate interest in the location as a holiday destination.

According to Guide to Faroe Islands, the "No Time to Die" crew is currently on Kalsoy Island in the northern part of the archipelago, which is famous for its untouched nature, sheer cliffs, winding roads and several tunnels through amazing mountains. The island is filled with beautiful landscapes, including Kallur Lighthouse and rough coastline. The orange helicopter used for shooting aerial scenes in the 25th James Bond movie has arrived on the scenic island, and it is believed that the crew is filming around the village Trøllanes, which sits in a deep valley in majestic settings.

Daniel Craig’s fifth, and potentially final, turn as the suave British spy, began filming in Jamaica earlier this year and also shot scenes in Italy. According to an official statement, the plot will start with Bond, who “has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”

Ian Fleming created the iconic James Bond character in his former home - Jamaica -  and "Dr. No" and "Live and Let Die" were also filmed there. Cast and crew started filming "No Time to Die" on 28 April, and the movie will be released on 8 April, 2020.
