Where is Mountain Detective Filmed?

November 9, 2023

For those seeking a thrill that isn’t as dangerous as chasing down a serial killer, a trip to see where is mountain detective filmed might be more up their alley. These locations aren’t only stunning to look at, but they can also add a sense of realism and intrigue to a film or TV show.

The first series of the award-winning period drama Top of the Lake, starring Dame Jane Campion, was filmed in Hokitika on New Zealand’s West Coast. The spectacular landscape, which includes pristine lakes and mountains, was perfect for the setting of the story of an orphan who becomes a detective in the 19th Century.

Similarly, the neo-noir crime series Terriers called San Diego home, both in its fictional town of Neptune and through myriad filming locations around the county. The Del Mar Fairgrounds and Oceanside High School, for example, both appeared in the show.

While you’re visiting, why not take a hike on the Llyfnant Trail? This stunning river drive hugs the gorge of the Llyfnant River in Ceredigion and Powys and ends at a small settlement near Glaspwll. The single-track road winds through a beautiful forest and valley that seems stuck in time, just like the character from the show.

Another great location to visit is the secluded village of Gjogv on the Faroe Islands. The pristine lake Toftavatn, which features in the series, is located on the island. It’s a fantastic place for hiking and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.
