A look at the Norwegian filming locations used in No Time to Die.

The pre-title sequence of No Time to Die is the longest of the entire series. At nearly 24 minutes in length it covers two distinct time periods and is in two countries with the contrast between the snowscapes of 1990s Norway swapped for a 2015 southern Italian summer.

Mr White’s house on the frozen lake was built for the film and the northern end of Langvann lake, some 20 kilometres from Oslo. The production also set up at Lutvannet lake, to the east of Oslo, although it’s not clear if filming actually took place. It may have been from where ice was removed and flown back to Pinewood for some of the ice scenes in this sequence.

Further filming took place at the house after the ice had thawed for scenes that appear later in the film after Madeleine flees London.

Second unit filming also took place on the spectacular Atlantic Ocean Road when Bond arrives at Madeleine’s house and later, when they attempt to flee Safin’s men led by Logan Ash.
