Home for Christmas is back for season 2 but where was it filmed? Let’s consider the filming location behind the beloved Netflix series.

We all have those Christmas movies that we watch without fail every year, right?

The likes of Home Alone, Elf, The Polar Express, The Holiday, Love Actually, The Grinch and It’s a Wonderful Life all spring to mind.

A number have come from Netflix recently too, which also struck a chord with a seasonal TV series in 2019.

Serving as the streaming service’s first Norwegian original series, Home For Christmas was quick to win rom-com fans over, many of which were keen to reunite with Johanne (Ida Elise Broch) for a second batch of episodes.

Now that more has arrived, let’s consider where the show was filmed…

Home for Christmas season 2: Where was it filmed?

  • Home for Christmas was filmed in Røros, Norway. This is also where the series takes place.

As highlighted by The Cinemaholic, it’s predominantly known as a copper mining town and has a rather small population of around 5,500. However, in the winter it becomes quite an alluring destination for skiers.

This is something which was somewhat touched upon in season 1, with Johanne going on a ski date when looking for romance.

It’s also worth noting that Røros is recognised and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. One reason tourists are drawn to the town is its architecture dating back to the medieval ages. Specific locations of season 2 are yet to be disclosed.
