As anyone who’s seen No Time to Die no doubt already knows, the Faroe Islands make for a damn cool Bond villain’s lair. With its roaring waves, distinctly dodgy weather and dramatic rock formations, the island of Kalsoy was a natural fit for the film’s gut-wrenching, heart-stopping finale.
To commemorate the island’s iconic role in No Time to Die, the Faroese government has installed a gravestone. Unveiled by none other than the prime minister of the Faroes himself, the stone sits next to the stunning Kallur lighthouse and reads: ‘In Memory of James Bond, 1962–2021’.
Now, if you haven’t already seen No Time to Die, first of all, what planet have you been living on? But also, sorry, you can probably now guess the ending. The film’s finale saw Daniel Craig’s Bond very much appear to get blown up by some missiles. It was, apparently, his time to die. Get it?
Bond’s gravestone on Kalsoy is obviously a bit of a tourist trap – but it’s a pretty cool one. Visitors can also partake in a James Bond Sightseeing Tour, in which you’ll be whisked past some of No Time to Die’s breathtaking filming locations. Plus, it’s all a great excuse to visit an undeniably gorgeous part of the world. As you can see below, there’s no place quite like the Faroes.
If all this sounds like your kind of thing, you can get direct flights to the Faroes from Edinburgh and Copenhagen. Tickets for the Bond-themed tour start at 2,800 Danish kroner (£314 or $414) per person – find out more and book tickets here.
