'Flags of our Fathers' filming location


Grindavik, Iceland (IS)
Director Clint Eastwood used Iceland´s black beaches and volcanic craters as stand-in for island fortress Iwo Jima in his movie, based on James Bradleys bestelling WWII epic "The Flags of Our Fathers" - telling the tale of the six flagraisers on mount Suribachi.

Key scenes, such as the landing of the marines and the fight for the crater that is the famous Mt. Suribachi, are being filmed on Reykjanes, the volcanic peninsula southwest of Reykjavik.
