As I’m sure all of you know, the movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” includes “Dirty Paws” and is largely filmed in Iceland. Here’s what The Guardian has to say about the role of Iceland in the movie: 
It’s not uncommon to find Iceland grabbing attention in Hollywood movies – it’s just rare for audiences to know it is Iceland. In the last two years, the country’s glaciers, volcanoes, black sands and waterfalls have lent the required other-worldliness to films such as Oblivion, Prometheus and Thor, while also featuring in HBO’s Game of Thrones TV series.
But in the Ben Stiller-directed The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which goes on UK national release on 26 December, the island’s epic scenery gets a lead role, and this time the locations aren’t supposed to be an alien planet – this time it’s all about Iceland.
According to The Guardian, Nanna’s hometown of Garður is one of the filming locations:
The fishing village of Garður on the Reykjanes peninsula is popular for birdwatching and is part of a coastline sequence where Mitty has a leap of faith … into the North Atlantic Ocean.
Pictured: The “new” lighthouse at Garður. There’s also an older lighthouse, closer to the shore. Both are landmarks in the area.
