Movies That Inspired Travel in 2013
With award season here, we picked the year’s most wanderlust-stirring movies. From The Secret Life of Walter Mitty to Before Midnight, these films moved us all over the world.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Iceland
Ben Stiller directs this film adaption of the short story The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and stars as the hapless dreamer Mitty, who finally takes an adventure outside of his wild imagination. And what an adventure it is -- from jumping out of a helicopter off the coast of Greenland to skateboarding down Iceland’s Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Iceland is taking advantage of the film’s inspiring scenes and is offering Walter Mitty Tours of film locations, skateboards not included.
