Lyutsider Safin's secret base

Saga James Bond
Movie No Time To Die (2020)
The big bad of No Time to Die, Lyutsider Safin (Rami Malek), has set up shop on this remote island. Supposedly the object of Japanese and Russian envy in the film, it is actually part of the Faroe Islands. A paradise on earth that director Cary Joji Fukunaga has chosen to orchestrate the grand finale!
Kalsoy aux îles Féroé

“History isn’t kind to men who play God.”

James Bond (Daniel Craig)

While the script of No Time to Die embodies a desire to evolve the James Bond saga, the chief villain’s lair is in the pure tradition of the franchise initiated in 1962 by James Bond 007 vs. No.

During the scouting, the island of Kalsoy was chosen because of its wild character and the absence of cities. Cary Joji Fukunaga spots the location on Instagram without knowing exactly where it is. During a production meeting in London, the director shows the photograph to his collaborators, hoping that one of them will be able to locate it accurately. One of the participants decides to send the photo to someone he knows. The latter recognizes the island of Kalsoy. The filmmaker then set his sights on the northwestern slope, where the village of Trøllane is located.

However, none of the actors made the trip. There are no hotels on the island. It is therefore impossible to accommodate Daniel Craig and the various members of the film crew. A trick was then found: rather than relocating production to the island, it was digitized.

The scenes that are supposed to take place in Lyutsider Safin’s secret base therefore use these images, which are computer-incorporated. The opportunity to digitally erase the Kallur lighthouse, one of the few structures on the site. Precisely where the most tragic scene of the film takes place.


None of the cast of No Time to Die made the trip to Kalsoy Island.


Isolated from the archipelago, this island is located in the northwestern part of the Faroes. A breeding place for many species of birds, it is a wild paradise.

Inhabited by less than 80 people year round, this island is composed of steep cliffs and green valleys. There are currently four small settlements connected by a road. Kalsoy also... Learn more about Kalsoy
